Welcome Potter College Parents

Welcome to Potter College of Arts & Letters! We're excited to have your student join our collaborative, dynamic learning environment, and can't wait to watch them grow both as students and individuals. As a parent myself, I understand how exciting and overwhelming this time can be, for students, and those supporting them. Whether you're an alum or your student is the first in the family to attend WKU, students today are facing new challenges in forging pathways to success. We want to work together to give them the best experience possible.

For your student to be successful at WKU, they will need support, and, more likely than not, you will to be the first place they turn. Potter College wants to give you the tools, information, and access to support that you may need to be most helpful to them. We hope you can use this page to give you a better understanding of what your students are experiencing, and to be an effective partner in their success.

If you need additional information, or even just a point in the right direction, please contact my office, or direct your student my way. I can be reached at 270-745-2345 or at My office is located off the Potter College Academic Commons in FAC (Fine Arts Center) room 166.
