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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that Western Kentucky University is great for financial and academic opportunities. Western Kentucky University has saved me financially with all that has personally changed within the past 2 years. I have lost over $5,000 in scholarships due to Kentucky's budget cut but with the college having one of the lowest tuition rates, it has significantly helped. There are also many academic opportunities that is provided, including majors, minors and/or certificates. This is highly important to me for getting the most knowledge that I can inquire before getting into my career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I had an excellent experience at Western Kentucky University. The teachers and staff were always very happy to help. The education that I received at Western Kentucky was excellent, and prepared me for the career that I wanted and ended up going into (teaching). I would highly recommend that students who are wanting to achieve top quality training to teach in a middle school classroom consider Western Kentucky University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that WKU is the most amazing big small town school you could ever go to. I am in the Journalism program and about to declare another major and the professors could not be more humble and helpful and just there when you need them. The whole school takes pride in their arts program and their publications (which I just so happen to work on!) but it's not about being the best, it's about the connections you make here. It's about being who you are and no one makes fun of you for anything. They have a great Chinese Flagship program and an amazing Confucius Institute. The people who are so welcoming. I got accepted into Harvard, and I chose to go here; and never would I ever say that I made a mistake.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Western Kentucky University! They are very serious about making sure the campus is incredibly safe. They even have their own police department ON CAMPUS as well as a 24/7 escort service where a police officer will come and walk you to where you need to be so that you feel safe. Sports and cheering on our WKU sports teams are extremely important and it makes getting involved super easy. I'm so happy with my time on the hill so far!
