Small Town With a Lot to Offer – Lindsey Wilson College is located in Columbia, Ky. It may be in the middle of nowhere but there is lots to do! The students come up with the activities and they usually have a big turnout! If you don't like that just drive 30 minutes to Campbellsville and go watch a movie, or go to their college campus for the big parties! If you want to go shopping there is a mall about an hour away to fill those needs! All in all I think the college is a great place with a great location! Not in a huge city but not too far away from one to go out and have some fun!

My overall experience at Lindsey Wilson College has been outstanding, the people are friendly and the campus is very inviting. My major is Sustainability, a new topic that most don't offer and that is a heavy factor of why I chose this school. Sustainability is what makes my school unique, we are making a difference that everyone involved on campus can see and I think that is amazing. I am a hands on type person and in the Sustainability major we focus on project based learning and problem solving. Some of my favorite experiences at Lindsey are during Earth week when the Sustainability team sets up a tent and has class outside all week to relay the information we learn. If I had a chance to choose a school again I would choose Lindsey because of how much this school has transformed my way of life.

So far I've been exposed to and gotten more opportunities then I ever did in high school. There's always some sort of event going on on or around campus. My favorite would most likely be the root beer fest Lindsey Wilson hosted as part of an awareness campaign done by R.A.V.E. Lindsey is different in that it's a smaller private school so it really takes the time to get to know its students and help them to succeed. I would choose this school all over again because you can tell they really care and the professors know what they're talking about, the curriculum is challenging and what I'm learning will help me accomplish my future goals.
