WKU is an amazing school! WKU has more opportunities than you could ever need, and school spirit galore. The people at WKU couldn't be nicer, whether they are a faculty member or a student. There is always someone to lend a helping hand. Like at any school, the classes at WKU can be difficult, but Hilltoppers know that life at the top is always worth the climb.

The first time I visited Western Kentucky University, I remember thinking "Wow! This place is beautiful." And it really was, the sky was nice and blue and the leaves on the trees were white and falling slowly and I remember thinking "I can really see myself as a student on this campus," It just really seemed like I fit.

Love WKU the atmosphere is great and the campus is beautiful! The campus may need more parking and food options though, but it is an amazing school that has a lot of school spirit. Despite budget cuts going on around campus I wouldn't want to be anything besides a Hilltopper. Go Tops!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall view on Western Kentucky University is that it is a good school to help me get away from home and still feel comfortable with where I am at and be able to learn and enjoy my outside of the classroom activities as well as the environment on the everyday campus at Western.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am so glad that I chose to spend my undergraduate years at WKU. I am from Nashville, Tennessee and when I first began to look for at colleges, none of the schools I had looked at excited me the way Western did. When I visited, I immediately saw myself creating a life and memories here for the next four years. The campus itself is beautiful and the people are so open and welcoming, both on campus and in the city of Bowling Green. The campus is the perfect size, not too big where it feels overwhelming but not too small either. The campus has a strong sense of community and I think that it gives WKU a special quality that most other colleges do not have. The staff really do make you feel like they care about your performance and success as a college student, which was really important to me when I began to look at schools. The administration and professors are always open and easy to reach out to, whether it be about class curriculum or other issues. Academically, the school I feel is fantastic. The professors are good at their jobs and make you excited to learn. The opportunities that are given to us are amazing, and are designed to help the students succeed at the highest level possible. Extracurricular wise, there is something for everyone, and people genuinely find their niche here due to the vast amount of clubs, sports, and organizations available to us. Going to WKU was the best choice that I could have made for myself., and I know that I would have been settling for less if I would have chosen to go to a school back home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

WKU is a good University going through a rough patch. The budget cuts hit us hard this year and prices are rising all around, faculty are being cut left and right, and SGA is acting more childish than the actual United States Congress. However, everyone has rough patches. Western has nowhere to go but up! The campus is the most beautiful campus I’ve ever seen. Your professors are mostly helpful and programs and degree path options are vast and many. I’m enjoying my time as a Hilltopper! Go Tops!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just finished my first year on campus as a part of the WKU Honors College and I enjoyed my experiences. The class sized were always smaller than 30, which was a nice change from my high school, and all of my professors were very available to us and willing to answer any question even outside of class. Even if it was outside of their office hours, they would respond to emails very quickly. There are also so many campus resources, like the tutoring center, the counseling center, Preston fitness center, and the libraries. These make adjusting to life on campus so much easier and that takes off some of the stress of classes. The dorms are also great. I lived in the freshman honors dorm my first year and it was so nice because Minton's right in the middle of campus so I could get everywhere in a 5 or 10 minute walk and even in I needed to go off campus there are shuttles that run from campus to downtown and to various shopping centers around town. The shuttles are really easy to keep track of since they run all day and have updated times in the WKU app so you can tell when the next bus will be coming. I also thought that there was a lot to choose from in terms of food. Most of the restaurants are in the student union in the middle of campus but there's some at the top of the hill. Any place on campus will take meal swipes or meal plan dollars and there's even some places off campus where you can use mean plan dollars, like Chili's. There are also lots of events to choose from. Sports is a pretty big thing on campus but their are other events all over main campus and occasionally at south campus, which you can take the shuttle too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Western Kentucky! I can not wait to be on the hill every day with other students. I always feel very safe on campus because of how many cops they have. Also, they have an app we can use if we do not feel safe walking about to our dorm rooms. They also have so many things to get involved in which is probably the main reason i picked WKU
