What is your overall opinion of this school?

The professors in the smaller programs are attentive to students' needs and are always available to help outside of class. While these smaller programs may have more online classes, even these teachers are available any time. While not all of the extracurricular opportunities are stellar or unique, I have personally found my niche where I can be creative and make a difference.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Kentucky University overall is a great college. There are a few things I would love to see improve. This school is in debt and seems to always find ways to make students spend more than they should. Everyone is welcoming here, but they are not always the easiest to get a hold of when you need help with something. My experience through the Financial Aid office this past summer is one that I hope improves the most. Other than that, there are many activities to always keep you busy and enjoying your time here at Western. I am committed to staying here until I earn my Bachelors degree.

I love Western, but I'm trying to be a student there after high school. I do recommend it, there care about your education! There are a lot of housings on campus as well and they are worth the stay. Campus is family friendly and enjoyable, especially the events they have that go on, for to be students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a big fan of WKU. I'm from the town of Bowling Green and I was hesitant to stay in town for college, but I'm happy I did. It feels like I'm miles from home. I've had the opportunity to meet a bunch of new people and all of my professors are super accessible and friendly. Very happy on the hill!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a beautiful campus, but like most other colleges, you're either deep in student loans, on scholarship, or athletic... and occasionally brilliant. Unlike high school, you're learning things you'll take with you for a long time for the most part. You'll have to work hard, but don't forget to experience life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While I am still a freshman, I can safely say that attending WKU was the best college choice for me. Compared to my other college choices, this one has one of the prettiest campuses. It is located on the top of a steep hill, which can be tedious to walk up and down, but the top of the hill has a stunning view. The professor's are very easy to get a hold of and want the best for you and your education. The student body is very diverse and are overall very nice. There is a vast amount of clubs/ organizations that are available, so there is at least one club that will peak your interest. Greek life is a very big thing on campus, and if you aren't in one you may start to feel left out, but that's where the clubs come in. There always seems to be activities going on, whether it be vendors giving out free stuff, to a local pet shelter bringing animals for students to pet.

Overall Western Kentucky University is a great school! With me being an incoming freshmen last fall, it only took me 2 days to finally settle into campus and be able to venture out and meet new people. You definitely won't regret applying to this school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a pretty good school, but it does have some problems which includes parking, housing and things like that. However, the food is pretty good there is a lot of variety in places to eat. Bowling Green is a bigger city with an active night life. It has good restaurants, a large mall, and lots of grocery stores closer to the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I started attending Western Kentucky University in 2016 and since then the culture I knew my freshman year has changed a bit. The campus itself is just beautiful and that one of the reasons I when to the school. Especially in the spring time and the cherry blossoms bloom in the spring. You will never get use to the hill lol each year I think it gets better but it doesn’t. But there are ways around it like the bus or cutting across the hill instead of going up. I used to have a meal plan when I first started but I am from Jamaica and we don’t eat out often because home cooked food was better. So, the fast food wasn’t my best experience but it you love you some chick-fil-a, steak and shake, Denny's and subway they be my guest. The housing part of it is ok but its's too expensive if you have the money, I would get an apartment its cheaper. There is always something happen of campus and because the campus id so beautiful is a nice place to study outside if you need a new scene, that where I'm going all spring when it gets warm. The party scene has calmed down especially in the black community over the years. It’s a wonderful place especially if you make some friends. You will must get use to a small city if you are from a big city like I am, not much to do after 10pm.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Kentucky University is an overall good school. There are many opportunities for people to get involved so no one feels left out. There are many groups that people are able to partake in. The academics are very good, the professors genuinely care about your success and will go out of their way to make sure you are able to succeed in a class. I would recommend this university to anyone who is looking for a college to attend.
