I am going into my second year at WKU and I feel that I have already noticed a big difference in how I think about certain topics. The majority of my professors have opened up my eyes to certain topics that never really crossed my mind in high school. Because of this quality education I began to feel a higher sense of maturity which is a big part of the first year in college. The professors seem to take a big interest in their students in making sure that they attend class and work towards bettering themselves as a student....

    WKU is a memorable university experience on a campus that is filled to the brim with spirit and fervor. The campus itself is beautiful and secluded yet readily accessible to the rest of Bowling Green, and the professors exceed adequate expectations for instruction in their respective fields. The opportunities to apply yourself abroad, both during study and on faculty-led excursions, especially deem WKU an educational asset to anyone intending to take their post-college career to international heights.

    Western is awesome! It's a beautiful campus with a lot of cool opportunities to get involved. Classes are mostly smaller (I have around 30 in all of mine) which makes it even better!

    WKU offers many career options. The campus is small enough to provide a close knit feel. The university is always improving.

    It is a great school if you are serious about making something out of your life. The environment is good for students to be around. Cant judge it on the negative things that has happened, but by all the good things that has come out of it.
