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!

While driving through Bowling Green during June 2014, I stopped at the WKU Bookstore. Since it was during summer break, parking was free and pass was not needed. I've never been to WKU, but many of my relatives attended WKU over 40 years ago! I was able to stock up on some wonderful T-Shirts and athletic shorts at a great... More

If you like to be able to get to any building in 10-15 minutes, this is the campus for you. Those other campus' in the state are too spread out and it can take you 25 minutes to get from one building to the next. WKU has plenty of beautiful trees and new buildings that would be great for a... More

Class of 2005 alum speaking here, I have been to many other campuses due to traveling with my rugby team and I have to be honest, this is one of the best universities in the southeast. Even now when I talk with others and they discover I went there, they all know about how nice it is. Went back in... More

Visited the E.A. Diddle Arena for a graduation. Not sure how much of a "tourist attraction" this is but it's definitely a beautiful campus!

WKU has an interesting campus, and it's always a pleasure to drive through and look at all the buildings and the students milling about. We caught the early signs of spring, and it was very pretty.

Spent a night walking around campus and it was a workout. They aren't called the Hilltopers for 'nothin. Big, clean campus and plenty of hills to view the the city of Bowling Green.

Although this school is beautiful and if you have a chance to drive or walk around campus, do so. Not sure if it will be the right fit for my daughter and what she wants to study.

Like several other comments have said already, WKU's campus is beautiful--especially in the spring. I'm planning on graduating this May, and am going to miss it. You'll learn quickly that the nickname 'Hilltoppers' is quite appropriate. All in all, the professors there are quite knowledgeable. Be sure to take advantage of the plethora of athletic events...all you need is your... More
