The University of Louisville “means everything to me.” That’s what Angel Thornsbury says about her “community, family, home” – the place she’s spent the past four years.
Thornsbury, from Auxier, Kentucky (which has a population of less than 700 people), is a spring graduate and the first in her family to earn a college degree.
“When I first came to campus I admittedly was really scared. I really tried to do my best to branch out, go to different events, join clubs, join student organizations,” she said. “I truly believe that being active on campus is the best way to really find your purpose.”
Thornsbury’s experience has inspired her brother to follow in her footsteps, with plans of his own to attend UofL.
