Letter From the Executive Director
Donald Smith


Greetings From the Hill!

"GEAUX TOPPERS!" Homecoming 2011 was a memorable celebration, and I hope you were able to return home and relive your college days with both old and new friends. The WKU Spirit was definitely alive and well throughout the week! Please visit the photo gallery to see highlights.

As we approach the Thanksgiving season, I hope you will reflect on your WKU experience and recall the many ways in which WKU has had an impact on your life. WKU is a very special place, and this institution would not be what it is today without the support of alumni and friends like you.  During this season of giving, I hope you will also consider a financial gift to support the Augenstein Alumni Center or any other area you are passionate about at WKU.  To make a gift, please
