About 1,800 first-year students arrived at Western Kentucky University on Sunday for the annual M.A.S.T.E.R Plan program.
Master Plan is a program designed to familiarize new Hilltoppers with the campus. The five-day program offers informational sessions, educational worships and other activities to help first year students make the transition to college life.
Western officials say they see a correlation with the students who attend Master Plan and those who do not.
Classes begin next Monday, August 29th for all students.
