I decided to pursue WKU in 2014 after a 2 1/2 year break from two previous educational institutions. Prior to my registration, I was certainly hesitant to study as a full-time online student while working full-time. I knew I would have to learn to balance both work and school and anticipated it to be extremely difficult. Since my journey began with WKU, I am often reminded that I made the “best” decision with my choice in an online education. Until this experience, never have I received such personable communication from both my professors and administration. I am still “blown away” by how close I feel to the whole WKU community while being over 120 miles away. I encourage future toppers to take a leap of faith with my Topper Family and let them guide you into the next step of your journey. You won’t regret it!
