  • If you have a block of time (morning or afternoon), it is well worth your time to tour the Western Kentucky University Campus. The students and staff are all warm, friendly and helpful. The Planetariu...  more »

  • Went here. Great school. Parking can be tricky. That’s probably standard. We’ve attended, and known many others.  more »

  • Not many places to study at all is my main concern. The older dorms are very gross with small roaches that is not addressed. Clean campus overall and pleased for the most part with my stay
  • My sister comes here. She always talks about how her classes give her a nice challenge and how she's respected. This is definitely going to be my future collage. It's not too far away from home so that's good
  • I went on a tour on October 26 2017 and I loved it!! The staff and students was very friendly. The campus was really safe and the security measures are very thurough
  • My years on The Hill were some of the best of my life. I received a great education and am proud to call myself an alumni.
  • The convenience of a WKU campus being close to home was the best part of this school. As far as the program I was in I did not enjoy it what so ever. The program didn't require critical thinking or much application of the concepts self taught from the textbooks. My ADA was violated 2 semesters in a row by the same teacher and the disabilities office declined to look into it because it didn't affect my letter grade when final grades were posted. The career prep services are mediocre at best and they are of no assistance once you graduate. The accommodations put in place for taking test for ADHD at the Owensboro campus are absolutely awful. I was put in a room a little bigger then my closet with 5 other students to take exams. I declined to use that service after the first time because of how distracting the environment was in that small space. There is no campus feel here and no organizations you can join since it's not at main campus. The financial aid department wasn't helpful while I was there or even once I graduated when I had questions about the loans I received, while at WKU. The class sizes are super small which was enjoyable. There's little flexibility to class times if you're in your major and that can cause some problems if you are employed full time. I personally did not feel prepared to go out as a professional once I graduated from WKU. I got the degree with no problem straight A's actually, but I don't think I learned as much as I should have. I did not enjoy my time at this school.
