What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely fell in love with WKU. First off, this campus has a small college town feel, which I loved. All class buildings are within walking distance to all dorms. I was in the honors college, so most of my classes averaged about 30 people per class, which I really liked. My non-honors classes were much larger, closer to 50 or more students. The facilities were great. I spent a lot of time at Preston Center (the gym) which offers a lot of different work out classes for students. I also spent a lot of time at Cravens (the library) which has a lot of computers available for students to use on the main floor. On the upper levels they have areas for private or group study, and even have rooms you can rent out for meetings or study groups. I was also a part of Greek life which I think had the biggest impact on my experience at WKU. I would recommend Greek life for anyone who is interested in meeting a whole community of new people and is also interested in getting very involved on campus. Joining Greek life at WKU is not only making a commitment to better your campus and community, but also a commitment to better yourself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here. Everyone here is so nice and the university embodies a family atmosphere. There is always something to do and a variety of places to eat and shop. BG has a great location, it is only an hour from Nashville, Tennessee. I played soccer at WKU and I am so thankful the university gave me the opportunity to do so.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I remember the day I first visited Western Kentucky University. I can still recall the thoughts of "Did they hire these teenagers to walk around and look happy?" and "I wonder if the campus only looks this nice when they know visitors are coming." I honestly thought it was all a show they put on to lure in naive freshman. Now as a second semester freshman, I can tell you that it is not a show but truly what to always expect here at Western Kentucky University. Choosing to be a Hilltopper was one of the best decisions I have made so far. Go Tops!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Western Kentucky University is a very clean, classy university that has high standards when it comes to their facilities, staff and faculty for every aspect of the university, academics, and overall student care. The extracurricular offered are widely ranged, and every student can find something that they personally connect with, no matter what.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that, overall, Western Kentucky University is a fantastic school. We are currently in the process of hiring a new president and the search committee has nothing but the students' best interests in mind. I do, however, think that there are some problems in individual departments. I, myself, have had many issues with the music department. There's a heavy emphasis on music education which is fantastic, but those students who are only studying general music or who want to pursue a different music might feel like they're not receiving the best education. The Student Government on campus is truly amazing. They fight for equal rights of all students and are very quick to deal with any issues concerning this topic.

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.
