Getting 'the Collegiate Experience' Closer to Home

By  | 

GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) -- Melissa Tracy has been able to take nearly all of her college classes at Western Kentucky University's Glasgow Campus; something that wasn't possible a few years ago.

Tracy, a senior, once thought about becoming a high school history teacher, but then switched her major to elementary education. After that, she realized she could take all of the classes she would need for her degree at the Glasgow campus.

That hasn't always been the case. But through the years, more classes have been offered, making it easier for students to complete their programs of study locally.

Programs that can be completed entirely on the Glasgow Campus include: sports management, elementary education, sociology, psychology and systems management.
