What is your overall opinion of this school?

The classes and professors here are honestly the best drawing point to the school. Almost every teacher I've had has cared deeply about the students in their classes and every professor is deeply involved in campus culture in one way or another. Housing is awful and expensive for what you get. The food is meh and you will get tired of it at some point. Meal plans are not the best, even when you get off campus you still have to pay money for "flex" dollars. If you are going to come here, make sure you have a few majors you are interested in because I know I switched three times before I found something that truly resonated with me. Western's campus is super pretty though, especially in the fall and spring. Just be prepared to walk up the Hill everyday.

This school is perfect for me and has given me the opportunity to get involved in college. I love WKU and wouldn’t trade my experience for the world. I am challenged in the classroom and that helps me get to know what I want my future to look like! WKU is great and very underrated!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

WKU is a school that has a unique atmosphere for better or worse. Having a smaller campus compared to the other large state schools is nice and is convenient. The facilities, while a little older, are being updated and give a sense of tradition and history. The professors here are friendly and most actually want you to know that material rather than just throw up information that they tell you. There are many research opportunities and ways to get involved. I would say bad thing about a unique atmosphere is that you get a weird conflicting school identity. On one hand you have sororities and frats that provide an opportunity to make friends, however while they support tailgating their support for the sport is a little less. WKU is overshadowed by the bigger universities and while you might be a WKU fan, you cannot just be a Hilltopper fan- you also have to be a UL or UK fan. The food options are a little less than optimal with the two main healthy options being Subway or another company which you only go to if you really don’t care what you eat or how it tastes. After a while you just get tired eating from the same handful of options. Overall, WKU isn’t like the large state universities that we have, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad. You see people a lot more than you would on a larger campus and the teachers are friendly and actively wave to you even after you’ve had their class. Class sizes are small and you get more one-on-one time with your professor and see a lot more of the friends you’ve made along the way. While WKU does lack in some areas it’s nothing that takes away from the Hilltopper experience. WKU is unique in the location, atmosphere and even with our hill top mascot Big Red.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great place. I could not see myself anywhere else. The campus life and the staff are the greatest. There are several different areas of interest for a person to choose from. We have sports, the arts, overseas learning experiences, and a whole lot more.

It’s a great school and I love the atmosphere of campus in and out of the classroom. Overall I’m happy with my choice of attending WKU, and am excited to see what my future here holds. I’m about to begin my second year here, and everything keeps looking up! The professors and staff are extremely helpful and good at their jobs. I recommend WKU to anyone thinking about attending college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe there’s a lot that could be improved. For example, events for students on the weekends, updated facilities, more available food options. I think the academics are there, you’ve just got to apply yourself. On the social aspect, I believe it’s depending on the type of person you are, you’ll meet some “okay” people.

I love the atmosphere here, especially the music department. The professors are super friendly and outgoing and willing to help you be successful. I spend alot of time in the gym here and it is a great environment as well. There are some healthy eating options on campus too which is nice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

WKU has one of the most beautiful campuses but there is a lack of things to do outside of class. Some departments have amazing professors and some others are hit or miss. There is a huge tailgating community and it is very easy to find a club that matches your interests. Overall, a great university.
