WKU in the News

  • Caboni charts WKU’s course: When WKU competes against other state universities for state money under a new performance funding system, WKU President Tim Caboni said its greatest edge will be the personal attention WKU gives students.
  • Kentucky public TV station gives suspended students a turn behind the cameras: Students at The Academy at 11th Street in Bowling Green, Ky., are working with local station WKU Public Broadcasting this summer to produce episodes of the public affairs TV show Outlook.
  • Sam Bush concert to honor two Bowling Green music pioneers: Sam Bush will return to his native Bowling Green on Sept. 9 with a show at the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center.

  • Rivals reunited in Battle of the Bluegrass: For years, for decades, WKU and Eastern met each other to play a game of football. The series often decided conference titles, playoff bids and homecoming delight or defeat. But in 2007, WKU decided to step up from I-AA to I-A, and in 2008 the two rivals played for the last time. A once fierce series, known to all around the state as the Battle of the Bluegrass, went dormant. Well, it’s been awakened.
