"...I studied at Harlaxton College and lived in a castle for a semester."

WKU is small enough that it has a private university feel, but has a broad enough reach to provide its students with many opportunities! Professors at WKU are friendly and accessible and the class sizes are small compared to most public universities. The study abroad opportunities are phenomenal, and I highly recommend looking into the trip to Grantham, England, where I studied at Harlaxton College and lived in a castle for a semester.

My dream career is and has always been to become a veterinarian. I came to WKU with this career goal in mind, but the experiences and opportunities I’ve had while studying at WKU and abroad have made me rethink those aspirations. When I say rethink, I don’t mean change. WKU has caused me to rethink and expand my ambitions. I still want to become a veterinarian, but I would like to pursue that goal in a DVM-Ph.D. program. This program would allow me to obtain my Ph.D. while I’m in school to become a vet. This change in ambitions is largely due to my experiences with the WKU Chemistry department.
