Student Stories: Positive Impacts That Last

When you make a gift to the College Heights Foundation, you are changing the life of a student. So many students rely greatly, if not entirely, on financial support from the Foundation. Just this year, over 5,000 students received scholarships and were therefore able to pursue their passion for education.

Please watch the videos below to get a glimpse at the passion for education and the WKU Spirit all Hilltoppers share. Through your donation, you can fuel that passion and spirit for a current or future Hilltopper.
