    I definitely recommend WKU for upcoming college students. WKU has a wide variety of degrees, the campus is beautiful, there are many people to talk to, there are many things to do on campus, and it's very affordable.

    -Download the iWKU app, it's so helpful in navigating campus, especially if you plan on using the transit system! -Be open-minded; there are a lot of international students and that can be intimidating or jst odd at first, but be friendly and talk to them! They're usually very sweet and love to learn from you as much as you from them. -Learn good study habits/use the library! USE IT! -If class is boring and doesn't challenge you go anyways. Give your GPA the best boost you can starting off and it will help you later on as classes get harder.

    Definitely think you should visit the campus. Students will show you that you want to attend right then. DUC is awesome there.

    Be careful when you start to schedule classes, going up and down the hill is definitely a work out! But make sure to at least pay a visit here, it's really an incredible campus.
