It's a Small World, Full of Opportunity

Assistant Director of the International Student Programs at LWC
Have you ever dreamed of traveling the world? Have you imagined exploring new cultures and meeting new people? Unfortunately to do these things, you oftentimes must have a large bank account. Thankfully, we have a continuously growing force of international influence in our back yard. Thanks to the International Student Programs at Lindsey Wilson College, people of Adair County do not have to travel abroad to get an intercultural experience.
At Lindsey Wilson College, we strive to bring the motto, "Every Student, Every Day," to life. We want every student to have these intercultural experiences. Maybe they cannot study abroad, but they can still build relationships with people from all over the world with the comfort of their Alma Mater. Thanks to globalization, hard working individuals at LWC, and once in a lifetime experiences with United Nations Club, students can truly see that, "It is a small world after all."
The United Nations Club is just one facet by which we promote intercultural community at LWC. Our mission is to celebrate cultural diversity by promoting awareness, understanding, and appreciation of various cultures within our community. The purpose of this club is to cultivate relationships between international and domestic students that are supportive and encouraging, while having fun and unifying all cultures and ideas within the Lindsey Wilson College family.
At Lindsey Wilson, we strive to create a home for our students, whether they are from Adair County, California, or Japan. Every student is welcome. Every student has something different to bring and offer to make our club and campus a success.
We just initiated our cabinet into their respective offices. Each officer vowed to uphold their duties of service. With pleasure, the United Nations Club would like to welcome our newly instated 2017-2018 Officers! From left to right (accompanying photo) we have Heather White, Executive Assistant to the President; Alexandra Bixenman, Student Government Association Representative; Nathan Ness, Treasurer; Elizabeth Bunton, Secretary; Paige Enlow, Vice President; Airada Bricker, President; and Kassie Little, Club Advisor.
Following our initiation, hosted by Harden Coffee in Campbellsville, the United Nations Club ventured over to Scoops for karaoke and frozen yogurt. We like to think of UNC as more than a club. We are a family on similar journeys to successful lives. Our goal for this year is to see our family grow together in experience to prepare them for daily life and provide opportunities for growth to prepare them for their exceedingly bright futures.
This year, we have many exciting opportunities to offer our students. We hope to take a weekend trip to Gatlinburg, attend fall festivals, shop on Black Friday, as well as participate in the International Student Programs Christmas Caroling extravaganza. We have events planned to specifically highlight Kentucky culture, all the while having fun and building intercultural community. We are so blessed to work with some of the brightest and kindest students. We cannot wait to see what this year has in store for us.
