What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first began my college search, nothing in particular had drawn me to Western Kentucky University. Then I visited the campus and absolutely fell in love with it. Classes began in the August of my freshman year and I was immediately blown away by every professor's willingness to help a floundering student, by the ever-accommodating facilities that allow me to do my homework at two in the morning, and by the overwhelmingly kind and welcoming student population whom are always ready to answer that terrified freshman's questions and to build friendships. The activities on campus are endless; I am personally a part of an on campus ministry known as CRU, where I have met countless lifelong friends and really grown as a person. As the next semester approaches, I hope to join an intermural basketball or volleyball team, as I participated in those sports in high school. There's practically a club or organization for everyone who steps on campus, and every day I am reminded that I am exactly where I am supposed to be, oh home sweet home to me in Kentucky.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a proud Hilltopper, and I feel that WKU is a very nice school/campus. It has a highly praised reputation that it doesn't always live up to, and some of my own personal experiences have biased my opinion, but overall it is a very good place to pursue a college education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a pretty standard college. There are people who are really into going to the sports events, but I am mostly there to get my degree. That being said, there are plenty of opportunities to get help from professors and other students when struggling in a class. There is a large variety of classes to choose from and plenty to do in the city itself (when can be entered by bus if one does not have a car). Sometimes dorm life isn't the best as one can get homesick, but it is okay. The showers take getting used to and living with 40+ other people sharing them can make them and the bathrooms messy at times. Going up the hill is a nightmare. I will never get used to walking up it, but it is definitely worth the education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I enjoy attending school at Western Kentucky University. I have met great friends and have enjoyed most of my classes thus far. On campus housing is a little outdated, but I believe it will improve greatly as the university is beginning to make great changes to the current dorms.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good school, I feel very at home here. It is a "suitcase campus" though, so many students go home on the weekends. It wasn't my first choice college, but I'm very glad I came here! The campus is very pretty, especially in fall, and ll of my professors are very welcoming.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The university is what I would call a “typical southern university”. There’s A lot of partying, a huge Greek presence, and very few individuals that care about much else. I just wish people cared more about their education there. This might be a perfect fit for some, but not me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I may have only been here a few months, but I have come to like this place. Sure its a lot bigger place than I am use to, but at least the professors are just as friendly. The food is good and the class sizes are alright. The walk up the hill may be a bit daunting, but hey it could be worse!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I feel like I'm satisfied with the experience. Although I am just a freshmen and haven't got the full feel to the college I will say I have enjoyed my time here. There are a lot of resources for academics, plenty of places to eat, so far the professors are laid back but professional all at the same time. Although it may be a bit pricey, but I personally think it's worth it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It sucks! The student body is comprised primarily of a bunch of fat hippies and white trash. If you like unhealthy food- you're in luck! That's the only type of food you'll get here. The housing sucks, the professors are all terrible (and normally completely inaccessible outside of class), especially Dr. Hurst in the biology department. Don't go here! This is basically an over glorified community college!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here. People are very open and love to make new friends, don't be surprised when someone walks up to you and starts a conversation here! People are very open minded. Every campus dorm has quiet hours and they come in handy more then you think. I hope that you chose my school to start your journey here at WKU. GO HILLTOPPERS
