WKU adds visiting scholar housing

WKU has turned Colonial Courts apartments into housing for visiting scholars. These houses will be short-term living arrangements for visiting scholars.

“Colonial Court is almost an unknown, hidden area here on campus. It was built in 1934 by Henry Hardin Cherry,” said Dr. Larry Calliouett, coordinator of WKU’s Visiting Scholars Program.
