Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
How to get around campus. Many students walk around and find their classes the weekend before classes start so they don't get lost. It's an excellent idea!
Interviews & Information Sessions
WKU has many FOCUS sessions throughout the year. These usually happen on a Saturday and allow prospective students to attend sessions about WKU, tour the campus, meet WKU students, etc. For more information, contact the admissions office. Interviews are only conducted for certain scholarships.
Campus Tours
Campus tours are available Monday through Friday, as well as some Saturdays. These are led by WKU students, and prospective students can schedule tours through the Admissions office. For those interested in joining the Honors College, they can receive a private tour from the HonorsToppers (select Honors students).
