What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love WKU. The overall environment is wonderful. The campus is one of the safest in the country. The students around campus are always friendly, as well as the professors. You can build lasting relationships with the professors. WKU is just a great campus and overall great atmosphere to be around. I thought about transferring schools, but something drew me back to WKU. I'm so glad I decided to stay.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school is easily accommodative. They provide everything from a click of a button, whether you're on campus, or you're a distant learner. I'm a distant learner myself, so I probably won't be able to actually give an honest review about anything that has to do with their campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think WKU is a wonderful school to attend. Most everyone is there is nice and helpful whenever you need anything. They really try to get everyone involved and show them around or what they can get involved in. The campus itself is so beautiful and they keep it up to date and clean. The professors are super helpful and almost always willing to help you in anyway they can.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Kentucky is overall a great school. First of all, the campus is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! There are many different varieties of restaurants on campus and they all contain great food. The extra curricular life is amazing as well. But over all my favorite part is the easy and accessible academic buildings.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Going to WKU is easily the best decision I've made. Everyone that attends WKU shares the same passion towards their university. The campus has many activities for it's students that ranges from e-sports leagues to football tailgates to greek life to run clubs. There's something for every student on campus to enjoy. The president is loved by all students and is very active on campus. The original buildings have been maintained , as well as, the newer, high-tech buildings. The on campus living is nice and the staff is very helpful. Off campus is easy to come by and still walking distance to campus. There's plenty of food options on campus with meal plan options. Tons of off campus food with student discounts. I'd tell anyone to come to western because it will be the best college experience you can get. The school pride is radiated on campus and truly makes the university everything it is.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall WKU is a welcoming University. Being a hilltopper has its up's and down's, whether it's going up that hill 5 times a week or once. WKU has given me the college experience and I don't regret any moment of it. I love being part of Bowling Green it has given me a home and a new family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western has the best campus I've ever been on which was my selling point of deciding to go there. The campus is beautiful and has the best views everywhere you go. I was nervous about going to Western at first but it's the best decision I ever made. It feels like home and Bowling Green is so homey and welcoming, I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. There's always an opportunity to get involved with some sort of club or activity on campus and if you don't attend the football games, what are you doing?! I love Western and I'm glad I chose to come here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It isn't a bad school and has a beautiful campus but there are certainly some issues. Some dorms have mold problem, some of the off-campus apartments are structurally unsound. The academic buildings are a pain to navigate and the professors are underpaid. That being said, they have some great programs and opportunities and overall the student body is great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school. Everyone is really kind and welcoming. There are always a ton of activities going on to participate in. The classes are pretty small. Most of the professors are really helpful and will always try to get you the best experience out of the class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Kentucky is a great place to be! The sports are a big thing, but I don't care for it. The staff and facilities are great! I only wish they had more classes relevant to the current technologically evolving and globalizing market. I was disappointed with the lack of animation and foreign language majors/minors.
