Henry Hardin Cherry Hall
Henry Hardin Cherry Hall
Henry Hardin Cherry Hall Henry Hardin Cherry Hall The official top of "the Hill," one of the most recognized spots on our campus is that of Cherry Hall, named for our first president, Dr. Henry Hardin Cherry. Home to English, History, Philosophy & Religious Studies. Because English and History courses are gen ed requirements, chances are you will have a class (or classes) in this historic building your first year on the Hill.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Though most people don't choose WKU as their dream school, most students are still satisfied with their choice to attend. The University may have its problems with little things around campus (like parking), but as far as universities go, students know that overall they have it pretty good.

When asked whether they would do it all over again, many say that they would still choose Western. WKU really becomes home to many students over the course of their time spent in Bowling Green, and there are tons of opportunities to do anything they choose. The atmosphere—featuring lots of experiences to get involved with infused with a sense of belonging—is really what makes Western unique.
