NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.--Campus is scattered with fresh faces engaging in their first fall semester at Westminster College, but for many others around campus, this will be their last one. Senior Lindsey Oliver has made a huge impact on not only her peers, but the community on campus, too.
Lindsey Oliver is a Criminal Justice and Psychology double major as well the President of the All-College Honors Program. But don’t let that fool you, Lindsay won’t always be found studying. Since her freshman year, she has been actively involved all throughout campus. She has filled her time here in a variety of ways, from being a part of the dance team, planning all-campus events as the Vice President on SGA, overseeing recruitment and retention in her sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha, and more.
Being involved of a wide range of co-curriculars has allowed Lindsay to discover that College is not only about learning, but “it’s also about figuring out who you want to be.”
Moving towards the future, Lindsay is excited to be completing her Honors research project on Biases in Criminal Sentencing and Disparities, as well as finalizing her plans after graduation. Lindsay plans on attending law school, focusing on interdisciplinary of criminal law, working towards becoming an attorney in the future.
Although these are exciting times moving forward, Lindsay is going to miss the people here on campus the most. “Being such a small tight-knit community, I have gotten to know so many people here on a personal level,” she said, “that’s something really unique about Westminster and has been one the most rewarding parts of my time here.”
Not only has Lindsay made an impact here on campus, but Westminster has also made an impact on her. Westminster has given her the opportunity to follow her passions and explore all her different areas of interest.
“The faculty are so supportive of me as a student and a person. Westminster has taught me what it means to be a leader, not only in my classes, but in my community too,”
