Each year, over 1000 students enjoy the benefits of Super Saturdays.

The Center offers two, four-week sessions of Super Saturdays each year, the first in the early fall and the second in the winter. Both sessions are held on Western Kentucky University‘s campus in Bowling Green, KY. Choosing from more than 30 classes, students take one class over the course of these four Saturdays.
