“I loved those days as a student at WKU but I did not fully appreciate the role WKU played in my life until I came back to the campus as a ‘student’ in Alumni College. Alumni College gave me the opportunity to do it all over again.”   
Brenda Bush ‘75  Glasgow, KY

“Alumni College is a wonderful opportunity for alumni to return to campus for a long weekend of activities, games, classes (no tests!), and the chance to relive old memories while making and renewing friendships. If you haven’t been back to campus lately, or if you need a good dose of the WKU Spirit, Alumni College is the perfect opportunity.”   
Paul Calico ’76   Cincinnati, Ohio

“I had not been back on campus for 17 years.  I longed to see how things had changed, but also how they had stayed the same. And I wanted to share the Western experience with my 12 year old daughter.  I learned so much about Western that I would not have appreciated as a student straight out of high school. The campus was gorgeous, with all the landscaping and new buildings and dorm renovations. The activities had enough diversity to suit anyone's taste and kept us so busy we looked forward to sleeping in our dorm room bed.  And I finally learned to line dance. Our visit exceeded my expectations!”  

Sandy Workman ‘81   Nolensville, TN

“We had such a great time at the Alumni College that we are planning to come back next year. It was so well organized.  We enjoyed meeting so many wonderful people who have such fond memories of WKU.  The food, classes and excursions were great!  We only wish that more people would take advantage of the opportunity to come back to WKU and experience the Western Spirit again.”
