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....

    Western Kentucky University, home of Big Red and the Hilltoppers, is a progressive and diverse University that focuses heavily on academics while simultaneously promoting social interaction. Full of tradition, WKU has a true sense of community that is not often found in a school of its size. Western pushes its students to grow academically, professionally, socially, and worldly.

    The campus is the most aesthetically pleasing, though it is also at the cost of a plethora of plant life being removed prematurely. Western Kentucky would receive a 7/10, which is still a rather high score, but there is definitely a lot of room for improvement (mainly monetary budgeting) that could increase the overall health of the school.

    Western is one of the best colleges you could attend . I highly recommend attending WKU, if not for the great education, then simply for the bonds you will make. Honestly, everyone here is like family, they are there for you.
