"Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler"

And the good times will roll during WKU's Homecoming 2011! There is nothing like a college campus during Homecoming and your Alumni Association staff is ready to assist to make this a memorable experience for everyone returning to the Hill. With more than 80 events planned, there is something for every member of the WKU family.

Homecoming 2011 is next week, October 18-22, so bring your red towels and celebrate the WKU Spirit with the theme "GEAUX TOPPERS!"  A detailed schedule is in your Fall 2011 edition of the WKU Spirit magazine or can be found online at It's an exciting time to be a Hilltopper, and we hope you always remember, "The Spirit Makes the Master."
