What a great place to able to attend a great school. Several professors at Western are GREAT teachers. It takes a very special person to actually teach not just get up and lecture.

As a newcomer to Bowling Green, it was gratifying to see a wonderful college campus and exciting to attend football games in an amazing stadium! We can't wait for the first home game of the season. Go, Toppers!

The school is properly named, "the Hilltoppers". Very hilly campus. You'd better be in shape to walk it. Nice campus.
