In a report done by the SREB, WKU and Murray State University were the two schools in Kentucky, that were highlighted in helping students stay on track and graduate.
A program that was highlighted in WKU's success report was the Academic and Retention Center.
This program provides academic advising, retention, and tutoring services.
"I appreciate that the focus is on the Academic Advisement and Retention Center," said Dr. Ellen Bonaguro, Associate Dean of Student Services and Enrollment at WKU. "But I have to say we're really a team and we work with many other programs across campus."
"I like to see students get out of here and have a good G.P.A," said Alicia Reece, WKU Student Assistant to the Retention Coordinator, "get a good job and I feel like we play a big part in that, helping students keep their grades up."
Dr. Bonaguro also thanked President Gary Ransdell for the support he gives to the Academic and Retention Center.
