Since it's beginning in 1911, many changes have occurred in the department; however, one thing that has not changed is the high standard of academic quality advocated by the Faculty and Staff of Family and Consumer Sciences.

The approximately 600 FACS students play a big role in this academic quality by participating in the University Honors College and a variety of preprofessional Organizations.

WKU is located in historic Bowling Green, one of the fastest growing communities in Kentucky with a population of approximately 85,000 that features such attractions as the Kentucky Museum, Corvette Museum, Hobson House, and nearby Mammoth Cave National Park. Located on Interstate 65 about 120 miles south of Louisville, Kentucky, and 65 miles north of Nashville, Tennessee, Bowling Green gives you that "college town flavor" while still offering conveniences of larger cities in the region.
