What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Western Kentucky University! I'm currently a commuter student but the campus is awesome and class sizes are good. I've enjoyed my time at WKU so far and I'm about to be a junior. The Nursing program at WKU is awesome and the new facility is one of the best. Ultimately I came to WKU because of how good the nursing program is!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Kentucky University is a great place for young adults to find themselves and figure out what they want to do in life with the help of advisors, other students, and staff. Everyone here at Western are willing to help you out both academically and socially and will always jump in to help a student no matter what.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I think Western Kentucky is a really good school. No, it is not the prettiest campus ever, but it still has some beautiful things. One of my biggest complaints is how so many of the facilities and food options are closed or have limited hours on the weekends. There are a lot of different kinds of groups of people on campus though-lots of organizations and opportunities to meet people and get involved. There are parties and drinking and some drugs, but not everybody does that; the party scene is here though. Classes are good. As with any school, look up your professor's beforehand to decide what classes to register for. Sizes are fairly small and every professor I've had makes an effort to help you if you have any questions and lots of free tutoring is also available.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Kentucky is a great school with a lively atmosphere and rigorous academic department. For those interested in education, journalism, or nursing WKU is second to none. WKU is an affordable option that still offers demanding coursework, thriving campus life, and helpful faculty to prepare students for the real world. I am proud of my time at WKU, and would encourage others to make it their school of choice.

Western Kentucky University - The Best Choice for SOKY and Beyond

WKU is the best choice for residents of Southern Kentucky and beyond. As a visitor or a student, staff and students are friendly and helpful. The university is proud of their heritage and preserves much of their history through the beautiful architecture and historic sights. Bowling Green offers many activities for the sports addict, party star, artistic muse and anything in between. The university is well known for dedication to education and offers a wide variety of classes for all types of needs from Photography to Geology. Campus security does exist and there are poles you can set off a help alarm. There is also an automatic phone call to all students, faculty and staff to inform them of emergency alerts in times of crisis.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

Being from up north I was expecting a southerner type of stereotype but there really isn't one. Everyone is different here.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

A lot of people join sororities and fraternities here. Also the club sports are big here too so that's inviting for any student that wants to play and be active. Also clubs for particular majors are a great way to meet alike people. Some activities people partake are enjoying the outdoors, such as relaxing in a hammock.

What are the academics like at your school?

Since you choose your classes, the academics can be either hard or easy depending. Some classes are better than others but overall the academics are okay.

This school is very expensive, teachers are rude and its hard to focus when you have to work for a living to pay for everything.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The diversity at the school is great but some people are favored over others i would say.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would prepare for college mentially!!!!!!! I Would adivse all my friends to do the same and to save as much money as possibly and to make sure you plan ahead. College is very expensive and if you have to worry about money 24/7 there is just about a 50% chance in success because your mind and heart is else where. College reminds me of darwins theory surivial of the fittest, you dont have money or a good background good luck getting through college.

Describe the students at your school.

A large variety of different peers. A lot from Kentucky and Nashville. The rest of us that are from other states are a little out of place at first.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The freshman girls dorm PFT, although I enjoyed living with a group of 800 girls, the dorm itself needs updates. The campus is beautiful this dorm can be depressing in the winter, rooms are small and bland.
