WKU in the News

  • WKU offers students canine help: When Will Montelli, a Bowling Green junior at Western Kentucky University, sought counseling at the university’s Counseling and Testing Center, he found that a therapy dog named Star helped him get the most out of his time.
  • Hilltoppers Preparing for Season Opener: The WKU football team will open up its regular season on Saturday evening against in-state foe EKU. “We got an opportunity against a great opponent with a great tradition to get out there and establish how we want to play the game of football,” said WKU Coach Mike Sanford.
  • Getting excited for the latest edition of the Battle of the Bluegrass: It’s been nearly a decade since WKU and Eastern Kentucky have met in football. That’s far too wide of a gap.
