Parking was easy in the garages. The campus has had much construction lately and it's beautiful. The refurbished "DUC" has great places for a quick bite or coffee.

Western Kentucky has a beautiful campus. We had an issue locating where our meeting (prior to the game) was and everyone was willing and gracious to help!

Went back for homecoming and hadn't been there in several years. I was impressed! The campus has grown immensely but still stays student oriented. The campus is beautiful and well kept. Lots to see as you walk around and several museums and exhibits to see. The stadium was amazing and high quality.

We'd not strolled the WKU main campus, "ON THE HILL" for many years. I always take visitors thru the campus, driving, & expose them to it's beauty.

I am a university professor and enjoy running marathons in towns that have a university. The marathon was a double loop course, about 40% that ran through the campus and nearby neighborhoods. The campus is beautiful and well-maintained. The next day, before we left town, we stopped by the bookstore to look around. Nice, modern building, clean public restrooms -... More

The college is on top of a hill overlooking the town. Great places to take pictures. Many students were crossing the streets during noon hour. Got to take pictures of professor Cherry.

We've enjoyed every one of our visits to WKU the past two years, where our daughter is a sophomore. The Honors program is one of the best I've experiences, and I've been in higher education for 33 years.
