Western Kentucky University Reviews
I’ve only been at WKU for one semester, but I’m already in love. As a student who is trying to pay their way through college on their own, WKU gives me the flexibility I need. Not only do they offer an abundance of scholarships to aid your education, but they offer a wide selection of classes as well. This has helped me as I work full time so the online and night courses they offer have been a perfect fit. But most importantly, Western Kentucky feels like home. This university is a community that welcomes everyone with open arms, and I’m a proud Hilltopper!
I really love Western even though I wasn't sure about the school at first. I am sophomore set to graduate in 2020! I have never heard anyone not like the school and everyone always has fun along with the work. I wouldn't say the classes are easy, but I feel like it will be worth the degree 100%. If you come to school here (which I highly recommend) make sure to be ready for your legs to grow some muscles! We aren't called the Hilltoppers for just any reason! The hill is real! Campus is pretty diverse, but I would like to see it grow just a little more In this section. I also wish there were more opportunity for financial assistance. Over all great environment and a great place to be! I am PROUD to be a HillTopper!
I like everything about western except for one thing m, I live the hill and how everything looks! It’s really beautiful! The the buildings are huge and pretty! Especially cherry y’all at night time. But the one thing I do not like about it is the minority’s. There are very few if you think about it. We need more, we need more to get involved on campus. We need to help each other get our work done instead of push them down. We are not unified at all.
