WKU also has a strong photography department. A friend of mine at school just graduated and will be attending school there solely for this reason. She'll definitely be some sort of art major.

Yes they do, my niece lives in Georgia and she will be allowed to use her Hope scholarship at WKU, because she is majoring in photography and no public college in GA has the program she needs.

I'm a Western graduate (broadcast news and political science). The broadcasting and journalism programs, in particular, are very strong and nationally competitive - year after year - with schools such as Missouri-Columbia, Syracuse, UNC Chapel Hill, and UT-Austin. The photo program is second-to-none.

With regard to other academics - the true test of a college or university is the caliber of students who LEAVE as graduates. Western passes that test. Alumni, collectively, give their alma mater high marks. According to Wikipedia, WKU alumni have among the nation's highest rate of giving to the university - in time and money.

As an undergraduate at Western, I had one-on-one interaction with my professors. It was nice to feel like a person rather than an occupant of a seat.

And finally - the campus is simply a garden spot, rivaling any I've seen.
