The Day in the Life of a Potter College Topper shadowing program provides students an 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 the program when Fall and Spring classes are in session. For the Spring 2015 semester, shadowing days are available now through Friday, May 1st, and will resume for the Fall 2015 semester on Monday, September 7th.  Please remember when scheduling, we need at least 2 business days to create an individualized itinerary for each participant.

If you would like to explore WKU's campus between May 1, 2015 and September 7, 2015, the Office of Admissions offers an excellent general campus tour with an info session. You can learn more at If you have a question specific to Potter College, please contact Sidney Blanford, Academic Advisor, at
