Home to the world famous Hilltoppers football and basketball teams. And The Hilltoppers music group in the 50s. The campus is beautiful. The grounds crew keeps the campus looking great, from the flowers to the fresh cut grass. Everything is nicely manicured. Multiple dining options are available such as Popeyes, Panda Express and more.

What a great place to able to attend a great school. Several professors at Western are GREAT teachers. It takes a very special person to actually teach not just get up and lecture.

As a newcomer to Bowling Green, it was gratifying to see a wonderful college campus and exciting to attend football games in an amazing stadium! We can't wait for the first home game of the season. Go, Toppers!

Unfortunately I showed up on a weekend when everything was closed down for the summer, but I had a lovely walk around campus checking out the exterior of the new buildings and reminiscing about the old ones.

Not only is WKU a world recognized leader in education, the campus is full of interesting things to do. Whether it is a walk around campus to view the historic landmarks or participating in one of the many cultural events, there is always something interesting happening.

I am impressed with this campus. We were here for a college visit and I have a feeling we are going to be moving a kid to a dormitory here in the near future. The campus community is really pretty and surrounded by quaint homes, some of which were available for rent by students. Talking to people I saw that... More
