COLUMBIA, KY - Ben Martin of Campbellsville, KY, has been named a Lindsey Wilson College Freshman Advisor. Martin previously served the college as assistant chaplain.

As Freshman Advisor, Martin will work closely with students throughout their first year in college. He will help guide them through course selection and registration as well as provide information, referrals and coordination with campus services. He'll also teach the "Freshman Seminar" class.

Martin said he is looking forward to the new challenges.

"I am so excited about serving Lindsey Wilson College in this role," Martin said. "I love working with college students, and I feel that I have a lot of life experience to pull from in doing so. Working in the (John B. Begley) Chapel was a great experience and only fueled my passion for working with this population. Moving to the Freshman Advisor position only added to the drive."

Martin said he can help contribute to the Academic Success Center by adding to what's already going well.

"It's not about what I accomplish but more about adding to what's already being done," he said. "The people that work in the ASC are committed to helping incoming freshman adjust to college life and be successful. They focus on things such as campus resources, active learning, family adjustment, values, time management, health and wellness, money matters and so much more.

"I hope to bring new creativity, resources and ideas to the table so we can be even more intentional and effective in helping students have a successful and enjoyable college experience."
