College Life Rating

A casual, safe, secure and enjoyable campus. Well taken care of, clean and easy to navigate. There are plenty of activities, organizations and clubs, for students of any type. As a non-traditional student, they have a wonderful department to help me return to college and achieve my goals. This has been more helpful than anything, and I was informed of the organization immediately upon inquiring about enrollment. It definitely helped take the fear out of the return to college life.

College Life Rating

SUCKS!!!!! People are so snotty at WKU. They think if your not rich then you don't belong. You can find much better colleges that don't judge you by how much money you have or how you look. WKU is overrated. There have been rapes and murders on campus I don't know how many times. It's not safe. DON'T GO TO WKU!!!!!!
