  • Loved the museum tour. The history of the Corvette, the story about the sink hole, repair and the damaged done was very interesting

  • We always enjoy our visits to WKU. I visited the campus frequently growing up, and I'm thankful to have graduated there.

  • Went here for 4.5 years. Graduated with a degree in Accounting, minor in Finance, and a few certificates. Beautiful, especially during the spring. Just a bit from Downtown. Would recommend.
  • Beautiful campus in the heart of Bowling Green's historic downtown district. A lot of events in Bowling Green are held here. If you don't have a WKU parking pass, it might be difficult to find parking within close proximity to campus.
