“The people are real. They really care about you. It is home,” said senior Abby White about her LCU experience.
White was drawn to LCU because it felt like a place where she could shine, and she would develop the skills she needed for her future.
White is a senior music education major from Amarillo and has been engaged in the LCU community in many ways. For the past two years, White served as an RA. This year, in stepping away from the RA role, she has transitioned into a role of leadership as president of the Zeta Gamma women’s social club. She is actively involved in Praise Choir and Chamber Singers, acts as a student worker in Student Affairs, and is a member of the Blur student planning committee.
Blur is a community worship experience hosted at LCU. Often, worship is led by Best Friends, and speakers visit for the event, but there is also an annual student-led Blur. White helps plan Blur with other students and staff members, in the hopes of making every experience unique and Christ-centered.
“During my freshman experience with Blur events, I was brought to tears and encountered God every time. Being behind the scenes is even more rewarding every time it goes right. Whenever our focus is right, then everything else comes together. You know that’s God at work,” said White.
With all the activities White is involved in, she finds stress relief in cleaning. Particularly, she loves the smell of laundry and the process of ironing. White finds that cleaning is a relaxing way to close a busy day, and refreshes her for the next day of involvement and activity.
Abby White is an example of LCU's commitment to be engaged in a variety of ways across campus and with the community.
