Parent/Guest TOP at Western Kentucky University is a companion orientation designed to meet the needs of new Hilltopper family members. Participating in Parent/Guest TOP will provide plenty of information and new connections to campus as you prepare to send your student to WKU. It is a great opportunity to attend sessions about campus resources and meet faculty and staff that will become your student’s partners in their educational career at WKU. Through sessions and the Information Fair, you will learn what it means to be a Hilltopper, how students can succeed on The Hill, the details of navigating through the financial aid process, housing requirements, and about other offices on campus.
Although Parent/Guest TOP is not required, family support is an important factor in student success at WKU. Reservations to attend TOP as a parent or guest should be made by the student when registering for orientation on TopNet.
