COLUMBIA, KY - Students, faculty and staff from Lindsey Wilson College's 27 community campuses gathered at the college's A.P. White Campus on Saturday, June 20, for the 14th-annual School of Professional Counseling Day.



The annual summer gathering attracted 236 people to Columbia-Adair County, who traveled as far as eight hours for the day, which is a mix of academic and social events. The students, faculty and staff are part of LWC's School of Professional Counseling, which includes an undergraduate program in human services and counseling, a nationally recognized master's program in counseling and human development, and a doctoral program in counselor education and supervision.

The day includes sessions of career and professional advice, seminars about mental health issues, a poster session featuring student research projects, a campus tour and social activities.

"This is your campus, and this is your day," LWC Associate Dean for the School of Professional Counseling Jackie Montgomery said at a welcome ceremony held in Biggers Sports Center. "This is a great day to build new relationships, fellowship and take advantage of all this college has to offer you."

Because of an innovative partnership with community colleges, LWC has 26 community campuses in Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. The partnership allows to earn a bachelor's degree in human services and counseling or master's in counseling and human development; classes are offered at the students' local community college. LWC's Scottsville (Ky.) Campus -- which has served Allen County-Scottsville residents since 1992 -- also offers those degrees, along with other academic programs.

During the 2014-15 school year, 891 of LWC's 2,641 students were enrolled at one of the college's community campuses.

During the last decade, more than 2,000 LWC alumni have earned degrees from the college through the community campus partnership.
