One of the prettiest campuses I've seen and that includes the big name schools. Fun pit stop while touring Bowling Green or the old town square and court house. Get out of the car, take a load off and walk around or just relax!

Nice large state university - not especially beautiful architecture, but hey, it's fine. Not well known or highly selective, but there is more here to learn than any single person can absorb. GO FOR IT! Very popular school.

In the area and wanted to see how the campus has changed since I went there. It's still as beautiful but there's a lot of new buildings and much has been done with the campus. I wanted my boyfriend's teenage son to see it. Glad I took the time. Would recommend WKU to any kids trying to make that decision.... More

We were staying at The Hyatt Place hotel just blocks from the center of campus. We took a delightful drive around the campus after dinner at 400 on Main a neat local restaurant down town on the square.

Theres not a bad seat in this stadium to watch a game. The fans, the band, the football team and of course Big Red all add to the experience of college football in Bowling Green.

What's not to love. It has been years since I actually lived in Bowling Green but the campus is always welcoming. I toured with new eyes as I toured the campus with my teenage daugther. Would not mind her living on the hill some day.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the campus grounds! So clean, upkeep and beautiful compared to some school campuses I've seen. So much for the students there :) We were in awe.

Enjoyed this tour immensely. Learned so much about the University that I wouldn't have known otherwise without doing tons of research online. My son is definitely wanting to attend WKU now! It was a hot day and we took the walking tour. It wasn't that far of a walk but because WKU is set on a Hill (Hilltoppers) you will... More

Brought my niece for a college tour. I am an alumni and the atmosphere has not changed. Small groups, lovely staff that are super helpful and sweet.
