5 College Junior

Overall Experience: As a junior, I've enjoyed my experience at WKU so much. WKU is my home. When I'm away I can't wait to come back. The campus has a beautiful environment that is open and doesn't feel constricting. It's safe to say that WKU students have a strong sense of pride and spirit for being Hilltoppers.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: From my experience, WKU students have access to many potential career aspects. I have a professor who has connections in New York City and has offered to assist me in my search for PR internships. My advisors have also been helpful in pointing me in the right direction in considering career options.

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.
