A couple of weeks before I moved into Bemis Lawrence at WKU, my Dad took me by there, because he also lived there his freshman year. I could see my future in this tiny dorm room on the top floor, and now 25 years later, my first dorm is being demolished.
Western has produced, no pun intended, a lot of actors, writers and directors over the years, Kirker Butler, David Schramm (Roy Biggins on Wings), and Michael Rosenbaum. I think we have our first grad to star in a Hallmark Holiday Movie.
This is unsettling. When El'agance the Intern was working with us this past summer, we got to talking about WKU dorms and where we lived, etc. At one point she told me she had to miss several classes due to being sick from mold IN HER DORM. Seriously?
Something you may not know about Western Kentucky University, it has one of the most awarded photojournalism programs in the country. One former student has landed a very prestigious recognition for his work, an image that will appear on a USPS Forever stamp.
