Campus Visits and Tours
Western Kentucky University
Come see us on the Hill!
Pick a visit experience that best fits you!
A Western Kentucky University campus tour is your opportunity to visit our beautiful campus on the hilltop overlooking Bowling Green, KY. You’ll hear from our student tour guides about our majors and academic programs as well as the variety of student clubs and organizations you can be a part of, including Greek Life, marching band and our student newspaper, the WKU Herald. We have nearly 20,000 students, and we hope that you’ll become one of us — a WKU Hilltopper.
The WKU Admissions Office believes that campus tours are an important part of your college search, because schools have personalities too! It’s not just about walking around; it’s an opportunity to see if your personality matches ours. At WKU, we’re all about spirit, and we take pride in our students’ drive to seek an education, better themselves, and climb hilltops beyond our campus. We strive to model our first president’s motto “The Spirit Makes The Master,” and we love our mascot Big Red, the representation of our collective spirit, who appears at our Division I sporting events.
Experience Bowling Green, KY After Your WKU Campus Visit
As the third-largest city in Kentucky, Bowling Green is known for its dining scene, tourist sites, and being the corporate headquarters for several major companies.

Here is a list of attractions, museums, parks, and more that you can enjoy after you tour our Bowling Green campus.
