WKU in the News

  • Medical school on Med Center Health campus ‘on target’: A monster-sized crane stretches skyward on the campus of Med Center Health just off the U.S. 31-W By-Pass in Bowling Green, a vivid reminder that The Medical Center and its various offshoots continue in construction mode. Or maybe that crane, angling upward, is mimicking the growth curve of Med Center Health, which is approaching 4,000 total employees and is second only to Houchens Industries among southcentral Kentucky employers. Tuesday, that growth was even more evident as a caravan of 70 cement trucks visited the site of the parking structure going up next to the medical school, which is being built as a partnership among Med Center Health, the University of Kentucky College of Medicine and WKU.
  • Mike White on his final home game: ‘I love this place’: Friday’s game will be the 13th – and last – inside Houchens-Smith Stadium for quarterback Mike White. The redshirt-senior has had a brief, two-year run in a WKU uniform. But his play over that span can’t be undervalued. And from his perspective, the Florida native and South Florida transfer can’t wait to lay it all on the line at 7 p.m. Friday against Middle Tennessee. It’s his last opportunity to showcase his stuff on a campus he never dreamed he’d hold so dear.
