Our freshman seminar faculty and peer educators are an energetic group of faculty willing to aid in your transition during your first year at Georgetown–specifically your first semester during seminar. All Peer Educators are students who not only survived, but found success in their first year and will be excellent mentors and guides along your first year.
The Peer Educators for Fall 2014 classes were selected via the Emerging Leaders process. We are excited to have a stellar group of students and faculty to lead you through Freshman Seminar! All of our Peer Educators also serve as Orientation Leaders, and you can find more info about the rest of the Orientation Leaders here!

I am an Equine Scholar and I am also the IHSA Equestrian Team! I LOVE horses and have been riding since I was six! Along with riding and the Equine Scholars, I am also on the Track and Field team. I do high jump and long jump. I guess you could say I like to jump! One of my favorite things about Georgetown is all the opportunities there are around campus! Don’t be scared to try new things and really get involved on campus! Welcome to Georgetown! Go Tigers!
Patrick Harp (Faculty – Dr. Lisa Eddy)
My name is Patrick Harp and I’m from Frankfort, KY and a sophomore here at GC. I am a Management Information Systems major and a Communications minor. I am involved with Campus Outreach and am a First-Year Family Group Big Brother, which are some of the many things you can be involved with! As far as campus goes, I love going to the Grille after class and seeing who is there and just hanging out. That’s how I’ve made a lot of friends during my short time here at GC. As a freshman, I wish I would have been told earlier that Asher is open 24 hours a day and you can study and do homework in there and not be told to leave like the library. This helps me a lot knowing this now because I don’t mind staying up late to get done what needs to be done! I am really excited you decided to make your decision to come here and join the Tiger family. There is so many people on this campus that are willing to help you in every step of the way, including myself. Can’t wait to get this year started and make friends with you all!
MaKayla Jackson (Faculty – Dr. Rick Kopp)
Hey Tigers! Welcome to GC! My name is MaKayla Jackson, an Orientation Leader this year, and I am so thrilled to meet you all! I am from Morganfield, Kentucky, and I’m a sophomore here at Georgetown College studying Sociology. I love Georgetown because it is an excellent atmosphere to be in, I’ve learned a lot during my first year of college already, and I’ve gained friendships that I know I’ll have for a long time after I graduate. I am involved in a number of different organizations including Traditions Chair for the Georgetown Activities Council (GAC), Secretary for HG Lead, Christian Leaders Program, and the Tiger Bands! Getting involved is a great way to meet new people! There are so many different organizations to be a part of, and you learn so much from any of them! Feel free to ask me about anything during your time at GC, especially during orientation! Don’t forget to bring a lot of energy, and to get hype! You’re one more step towards greatness, and Georgetown will help you get there!

Jimmy Lacy (Faculty – Dr. Roger Ward)
Minor: Christian Leadership
Plans after College: Go into full time college ministry with Campus Outreach.
Favorite Class: World Literature because I learned how to think big picture within my own life and the lives of others. Saw how small I was and how great Christ is.
As a freshman I wish someone had told me to get involved form the get go and shown me how fun South Campus truly is!
Bailey Milam (Faculty – Susan Martin)
Welcome Class of 2018! I am absolutely ecstatic that you have committed to Georgetown College because you are in for an adventure of a life time. My name is Bailey Milam, I am a sophomore, and I’m from Harrodsburg, KY. I am a communication and media studies major and a biology and chemistry minor. I am a member of the dance team, work on the execute board for Dance Marathon as the Campus Relations Coordinator, I work in admissions, and I am a participant in intramurals, where my best friend, Elyssa Holt, and I dominated in badminton and came back with a win and a championship. A fun little fun fact me is that I love Miley Cyrus and my two front teeth are fake. At Georgetown College opportunities are endless and there is always something for you to do. Whether its intramurals or seeing a movie with GAC on the weekends, you’re never bored. A few pieces of advice is to definitely go to the writing center, befriend your professors, and don’t be afraid to ask for help. Two more small tidbits are to keep up with your G-Card to the best of your ability and not lose it (speaking from experience) and go to Hongs at 2AM. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

After graduation, I will be pursuing a Master’s of Behavioral Analysis or admittance into graduate school for Speech Pathology. Even though my Georgetown tenure is almost over, I—along with the other members of the Orientation staff—are here to make your transition as easy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact any of our Orientation team! Best of luck and welcome to Georgetown!
