I have many things that I love about LWC, but
if I have to pick a favorite, I love going to football games,
watching the band perform, seeing the school spirit all through the
bleachers and watching our players get fired up for the game!
My word of advice to seniors in high school:
Make sure you stay open-minded about your decision on where to
attend college and do some investigating on your own. Too many
times I see young people who do not visit places and instead make
decisions based on friends. Consquently, they select a school that
isn't necessarily the right fit for them.
Charity Ferguson: Central Kentucky
I love LWC because I am surrounded by the
absolute best people in the universe. Our amazing faculty and
staff have a passion for service to others like none I've witnessed
before. I am honored to be a member of such an incredible
I wish I had known
the importance of a campus visit during my senior year. It's
really the most important part of the decision process!
favorite aspect of LWC is its small classes. You really get the
chance to know your classmates and
professors, which makes your college experience more valuable
My advice to high school juniors and seniors is to
take the ACT early and as often as
possible. Even though you have the opportunity
at the end of your junior year, I
encourage students to take it earlier in the
year -- and as often as possible -- to
maximize scholarship opportunities.

One of my favorite things about LWC is the
opportunity for students to see and experience the world through
participation in service-learning trips, study abroad programs and
interaction with a diverse student body. Some of my most memorable
moments include serving with the Bonners in San Francisco and
Chicago, and traveling to Seattle and Alaska with the Lindsey
I encourage high school seniors to become
involved on campus -- it's one of the most important aspects of the
college experience. Participation allows students to develop
friendships, create networking opportunities and build a
Josh Gibson: Greater
I love how much the campus has
changed, yet remains the same. With all of the new
facilities and great additions to the A.P. White
Campus, LWC still holds on to the small-town
atmosphere it has always had.
I suggest you to ask lots of
questions about the FAFSA and financial aid. Potential free
money is a terrible thing to miss out on, so get your
FAFSA done as soon as possible after Jan. 1.

My favorite aspect of Lindsey
Wilson College is the service-learning atmosphere. LWC
gave me the opportunity to serve the campus inside and
outside of the classroom, as well as the local
My advice to high school seniors
is to push yourself to reach your full potential through
extracurricular activities and challenging classes so
that you are fully prepared for your freshman year of
favorite thing about LWC is how easy it is to feel at home.
The community I built and the love I received
was overwhelming. Breaks became too long and I
couldn't wait to get back to school. Even
though I am no longer a student, I still feel like it is my
advice is to get involved in as many things as possible.
Don't spread yourself too thinly, but try
everything! Step out of your comfort zone. Exploring
new and different opportunities can teach you so much
about other people and about yourself.
