College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off of campus.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There is so much to do and so much variety for the off-campus dining options.

4 College Student

Administration: I think that the school has very high expectations for it's students.

College Student

Party Scene: I haven't really been a part of the party scene yet.

5 College Student

Scholarships: My financial aid process was very seamless and easy. I received notification of my scholarship very soon and I really didn't have any questions, because they had already been answered.

4 College Student

Campus Food: I really like the campus food options at WKU. There are so many different options to choose from, and the cafeteria food is also really nice. The prices are very applicable.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Although the dorms are a bit on the small side, I really like the dorms at my campus. They are clean and have all the necessities to live comfortably. The residence hall employees are also very kind. The only thing that is a bit on the negative side is the distance from the residence halls to my classroom buildings; they're almost on the completely opposite side of the campus. Other than that, it's great!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: We have a variety of greek life and its a fun thing to join one. You be able to network with other people and just to share a life together and be friends forever.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: They have plenty of housing selection and now they are building more dorms and apartments because wku is currently growing which is wonderful thing. Its also very convenient and the prices are not as bad. Just make sure you have enough roommates to split the rent.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: In the Fresh Company Buffet, they usually have certain diverse foods which is great for our internationals to enjoy.

3 College Freshman

Administration: My college isn't that strict they just want everyone to have fun and be safe and just follow the rules.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid wasn't that bad but it did get some financial aid back which was a great thing.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Partying can be really fun but don't forget to stick to the books as well. You can still party and have fun with your friends but also remember why you in college for. But yes, parties are fun but also you have to be smart in what you partake in and just be safe doing what you do.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I like all the foods items to be honest. It can also be annoying because you eat it all day everyday. So usually I eat out a couple of times and then I have my own personal food in the dorm to eat as well. But overall, its reasonable prices because its all on the swipe card given to you at the beginning of the August.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great experience because it allows you to meet new people in your dorm and also to get the feel of campus life. All freshmen should live on campus because it helps you open up to new members and being able to feel free and do your own thing.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not yet been able to experience off-campus housing because I am a freshman and am required to live in dorms.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are certainly a lot of things to choose from. There are many fast food places but also a lot of expensive ones.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I think that administration does a very good job of keeping a balance between being strict and lenient. They care more about the things that matter. Although parking strictness is kind of ridiculous.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They don't just give out scholarships to the most needy people. It kind of isn't fair.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am greek and the parties here are fantastic. They are very fun and upbeat but also really safe as well.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is a wide variety of choices for lunch but for dinner the only thing open is the downing food court and the tower food court. Garret food court should be open for dinner as well. They options they give you at dsu are not particularly healthy. I wish they offered some other side item besides French frys. If they gave you the option to switch them to fruit, that would be ideal. Also, they should have more drink options. More juice or teas would be a very nice change.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus Housing is not the best but it does give you the typical freshman living experience. I do not like how they are so strict on visitors though.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is average for the most part but kind of expensive.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of off-campus dining options.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am in desperate need of financial aid and have not gotten what I needed.

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?

View student contributors

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.
