Western Kentucky University reviews
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.

Was actually working this morning & for our first day, I can truthfully say I def stressed way too much over it bc it was totally not like I expected & I had fun & am ready to see how the next time is gonna go, it's lil different from today as today was lady topper game & next is hilltoppers so I expect it to be quite a bit more as far as crowd & we stay the whole time to direct them out afterwards as well. So it's gonna be a few more hrs also but that's prolly not an issue I'm sure. We can handle it, we can handle anything that we tackle as a team & I'm thankful I can say that. Enjoy working with my hubby, but countdown has begun bc he goes back to his regular job in April. But we can say that we felt welcome & def didn't have that weird 1st day feeling like a lot of places. They made us feel included & like they were glad we were there. It was a pleasant change. I hate starting a job & feeling like you are the only one that doesn't belong there. This was nothing like that at all & it was enjoyable.
I visited the campus while staying in the area for the total solar eclipse in 2017. The campus was clean and safe. Internet searching showed that this was the only place in the US with white squirrels. I walked around the campus for 2 hours but only saw regular squirrels. Many students were not aware that this campus was known to have white squirrels and those who were aware said they never saw one. Just as I was about to give up, I spotted one by Potter Hall!
