WKU in the News

  • Robert Reich visits WKU and speaks on American politics: Former Secretary of Labor for President Bill Clinton and one of President Barack Obama’s economic advisers traveled to WKU on Wednesday. He spoke with students and faculty, answering any questions they may have on politics.
  • Tops head to Old Dominion looking for complete road performance, fourth straight win: Sometimes it’s about Xs and Os. Sometimes it’s about execution. Sometimes it’s about scheme and system. Sometimes it’s not. “I think the only thing that really changed was the mindset of our guys,” WKU senior quarterback Mike White said. “I think – not much of a wake-up call, but what just kinda shook us a little bit was putting 15 points up against anyone, I don’t care who it is, is not the way we know how to play football here.”
