Day in the Life of a Potter College Topper (DLO)

DLO Potter College


The Day in the Life of a Potter College Topper (DLO) shadowing program provides students with a unique opportunity to get a better idea of what it might be like to be a student at WKU with a major in Potter College. Because the student-to-student nature of this program is critical to its success, we only offer when Fall and Spring classes are in session and we ask that you complete a form at least 1 week prior to your requested day to visit. DLO tours are not offered during the following WKU breaks and summer: October 11-12, November 27-29, December 4 - February 1, March 9-13, and May 5-September 1.
