There are really great teachers, and really not great teachers like any school. Beautiful campus, and there are a lot of different clubs and things to get involved in for any sort of interest. Food options are average. I think it's hard to socialize outside of clubs and Greek Life, though.

When applying I was assisted in a very attentive way, which made me feel rather wanted by Western Kentucky University. I would love to be a proud student of their school.

Overall my experience at Western Kentucky University has been great. The university offers some great programs that will allow the students to translate well into their potential careers. All of my professors have been awesome and are always willing to help as long as the student shows effort. The majority of our sports teams are quite good also. I don't know too much about the party scene because I don't go out that offend but individuals that I know say that it's alright. The campus is beautiful one of the best in the state I believe and it is always an enjoyable place to be.
