What a beautifully landscaped campus!! There is a huge hill in the center of the campus. My granddaughter went to a very small high school and was worried about the big population of students at WKU. No need to have worried. She already has some new friends. She LOVES her professors. Positive experience so far.

I went here for 2 years before transfering due to personal reasons. The landscaping here is great and the professors really want you succeed, however, the school is mostly focused on their sports teams and Greek assoications. There is ALWAYS construction and the lack of parking spaces is annoying! The dorms are so tiny and outdated. There are lots of... More

WKU is one of the prettiest campuses that I have ever seen. It is a very diverse school with a wide range of programs!

Pretty campus but most buildings are different in style built in different eras. They just don't build campuses with same style of buildings anymore. Stadium right on campus.

Beautiful campus on a hill with classic Greek Revival buildings, a museum, restored early and bautiful log cabins and a very friendly and helpful staff. Very handsome historic district near the college and downtown restored square and park also worth visiting!

Local school that continues to grow and expand. It has a nice campus but parking is somewhat lacking. There is a parking garage and multiple parking lots.

WKU's campus is beautiful ... landscape, buildings, history. The Kentucky Museum onsite is truly a rich resource for students and tourists alike. The Hardin Planetarium offers bi-weekly programs that are FREE!! Don't hear that much anymore!
