I have really enjoyed most of my classes through Western Kentucky online. The teachers, for the most part, are very knowledgeable and do a good job of conveying their expertise. I wish that the online cost was less mainly because as an online student I am not getting the full benefit of being on campus, but the overall quality is still good.
WKU is a great place to further your education! Great people, great atmosphere, and great facilities!
