WKU is a wonderful school! I am very happy that I chose it. I have enjoyed all my classes so far, and they have been challenging academically. Greek life is amazing. I love being in a sorority. I live on campus and plan to continue living on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Kentucky University has become a second home for me. I am most comfortable in classroom settings, and the professors are always available for extra help outside of class. Western Kentucky University has relieved my anxiety from taking the big step from being a high school student to becoming a college student. The campus is gorgeous, and the students are always prepared to learn. I plan on staying connected to Western Kentucky University for the rest of my life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Kentucky University is a pretty large college, with a small school feel. You can always find someone you know and say hi to them. Academics at WKU are also very great. The teachers are there to help and will always find a way to help accommodate the students if they are need of help. Game days, of almost any sport, are the best recreational times. Overall I adore western, it's a place where people can feel safe and have fun.

Western Kentucky university is wonderful school to attend. From the moment students step on campus they feel that they are at home. The campus is absolutely beautiful, both the outside environment and the campus buildings. The faculty is so kind and helpful, and the professors truly care about their students and their success.

I love the campus! I love the people! There may not be enough places to go to within the city, but traveling to Nashville and having great people takes cover for that. The staff at Western are so outgoing and will do anything to make you feel happy and there are great amount of resources to go to and the price of the academic year is easily acceptable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is far from home, so everything is still new. However, the incredibly friendly people, and exciting environment on and off campus has made the transition much easier than expected. I am only a Freshman and already have so many stories to be told from my time at Western. It is by far one of the best decisions I have made.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first applied for Western I was a skeptic. The application process was decent however I never received a welcome packet. I had to call to follow up on applications. Aside from having to keep up with them myself, Western is great. Slow on getting a response from professors but overall great.

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.
