The purpose of Alumni College is to offer a continuing education program for Western Kentucky University alumni to participate in campus life.   Participants stay in the residence halls, and take educational, yet fun classes, while they relive their college years with former classmates.  If you’re looking to retake Accounting 200, then Alumni College isn’t for you!  Participants enjoy a variety of classes from cooking to dancing to history and athletics. 

Alumni College was started in 2002.  The participants are given class options, and choices for field trips.  Each Alumni College participant pays a set fee for three nights accommodation in one of Western’s dormatories.  All meals, transportation while on campus, classes, and ticket reservations to all excursions are included in the cost. The program has proven to be a tie to WKU that many alumni and friends did not have prior to the program. Alumni College also provides an opportunity to involve the faculty and showcase their talents.

Come join us for a fun-filled long weekend at our next Alumni College scheduled for the summer of 2017.  When did you last see your college friends?  All alumni, friends, and family of WKU are invited to Alumni College.  This program gives alumni a great opportunity to reunite with college friends.  Call them and plan your Alumni College adventure together!
