Brooke Luker Hi! My name is Brooke Luker and I am so excited about your interest in UWA! I grew up in the small town of Sweet Water, Alabama. I first started school at Alabama Southern Community College and then transferred after basics. I graduated from The University of Alabama at Birmingham with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Management. While there, I had many opportunities to interact with students in working for UAB Marketing Department of Athletics, UAB Student Athlete Support Services, and UAB's Housing Department. After making the transition to The University of West Alabama, I started the university's first mentoring program geared specifically to college athletes. I enjoyed UWA so much that I stayed to become part of the UWA family. I now serve as an Admissions Counselor for West and Central Alabama. I absolutely love what I do! I know how important it is to have someone who truly cares about your career path and education. I hope to be this for all my students and encourage them to achieve whatever they wish. I want all students, parents, and counselors to feel comfortable asking me for assistance. My job is to make this process easier for you! I hope you will discover, just as I have, that "There's [truly] something about this place"! Go Tigers! Favorite place on campus: My favorite place on campus is Lake LU. Not only do I love soaking up its beauty, but it is an amazing place for fishing, band parties, and fun on the lake. Favorite UWA tradition:My favorite UWA tradition is our annual Greek games. It is awesome to see all Greek life come together and participate in friendly rivalry from dizzy bat competitions to swimming relays. What do you love most about UWA: My favorite part of UWA is the friendly atmosphere. Students and teachers alike are automatically part of the UWA Tiger family. The camaraderie among our students, faculty, and staff is hard to beat! Piece of Advice for Prospective Students: Get involved as soon as you can! Go to all the on-campus activities, athletic events, and university traditions. This is where you make lifelong connections with both students and faculty that will last a lifetime.
