In politics, the old adage “having a seat at the table” is often used to refer to those in positions of power, influence and policy making. This poster exhibit highlights a few of the women who have held political office and had “a seat at the table” in decision making for the Commonwealth.
This exhibit tells the stories of freshmen year from participants in a student success intiative, WKU Freshmen Guided Pathway (FGP). This cohort of first-time, full-time students who graduated from one of five high schools in Warren County represent the typical WKU freshman in terms of academic achievement prior to admission and their demographic makeup.
FGP assists students as they negotiate the often difficult affective and academic shifts between high school and college. Learn more about the program in this exhibit, presented by the Kelly M. Burch Institute for Transformative Practices in Higher Education, Office of Strategic Communications and Marketing, the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences, the WKU Center for Literacy, and the Kentucky Museum.
Gazing Deeply showcases how WKU’s backyard—the unique landscape of Mammoth Cave—is being studied, interpreted, and inspiring action on environmental change. Coinciding with the UNESCO Conservation of Fragile Karst Resources: A Workshop on Sustainability and Community and Earth Day’s 50th anniversary in 2020, this exhibition is a collaborative effort between arts and science faculty and students that highlights one of the most well-known and vital natural landscapes in the world.
The Top Drop & Go move-in option allows students to drop off their belongings in their residence hall room early and return home until it is time to return to campus for the fall, avoiding the larger move-in rush. There is no extra cost for students to drop off their items early.
We highly encourage students who have conflicts with the scheduled move-in dates to utilize this option, thoughall students are eligible for TOP DROP (except residents of Hilltopper Hall).
Students must have received their WKU ID card prior to arriving on campus to utilize the Top Drop & Go option. The ID card will be programmed to allow door access at the residence hall front door for the allotted two-hour timeslot.
Top Drop and Go is not available at Hilltopper Hall, since it is the 2021 summer housing residence hall. Students with a fall 2021 room assignment in Hilltopper Hall may apply for summer housing if they need to move in early. Summer housing charges are pro-rated by the night. Learn More
Top Drop & Go timeslots are available August 1-8, 2021.
Students are required to sign up for a two-hour Top Drop & Go timeslot through the WKU Housing Portal.
The two-hour timeslot allots for electronic door access, moving belongings into the residence hall, and leaving campus. Timeslots are separated by 30 minutes, per student, per elevator.
