Event Changes Due To COVID-19

  • Time: All Day

All in-person events for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester must be postponed, cancelled, or virtualized. Degrees will still be conferred to students who complete all the required coursework this semester; however, in-person WKU commencement celebrations will take place at a later date.

It is important for all students to practice social distancing and implement the practice into all activities.

Although this may cause inconveniences and disappointment among event participants, we believe it is in the best interest of our campus communities.

For questions about specific events, please contact the event’s organizer or the WKU Office of Campus and Community Events at 270-745-2497 or via email at special.events@wku.edu.
