Michael Rosenbaum, Class of 1995

"The opportunities WKU gave me were endless."


Michael's Story

I truly believe that Western Kentucky University had a huge influence in the outcome of my career. I was a frightened child when I entered college with very little direction. The opportunities WKU gave me were endless. I was a D.J. on the college radio station, I performed in countless plays, directed a play, did commercials, and starred in a little independent movie made by students in the Communications department.  

The possibilities were endless and I took advantage of all of them. I’m very grateful that I not only made the wise decision to go to college, but that I chose Western Kentucky University.


Michael is best known for his starring roles as Lex Luthor on Smallville and Buddy Dobbs in Impastor. You can see his entire filmography here. In 2017, he participated in the NHL All-Star Celebrity Shootout, along with other stars like Justin Bieber and Cuba Gooding Jr. Michael's team won!
