Classes don’t start until Monday at WKU but the incoming freshmen are already getting “schooled” on the university’s rich history.

More than two thousand freshmen moved to campus Monday and Tuesday to spend the week at Master Plan. This year the orientation included a traditions night to teach them all things WKU.

“How we doing class of 2022?”

Topper U – a chance for freshmen to learn what it means to be a Hilltopper.

“Are you ready for this?”

The class of 2022 got a crash course on the spirit of WKU.

“It was so much fun to share all the special things about being a Hilltopper with the incoming class of students. They’re enthusiasm and excitement about being on the hill is truly contagious.”

The red towel, the fight song, even a Spirit Master-led sing-a-long of WKU’s alma mater College Heights.

“I didn’t know the fight song or the alma mater, I thought that was really cool to learn.”

“I didn’t know what to expect. I heard people talk about chants and cheers and traditions but I didn’t know how that was going to look. So cool to see the cheerleaders and dance team and get to cheer on WKU.

And of course Big Red stole the show.

“This place is different…

“People here will care about you…I promise”

“It was awesome. It was good to see everybody show so much school spirit for something they obviously care about. Glad to be a part of it.”

Summing up why Topper U was about much more than just learning the traditions.

“The idea is that they walk away tonight feeling a part of the Hilltopper family and I think the event truly accomplished that.”

“We’re so glad your finally home. Go Tops!”

Master Plan activities continue through Saturday and the fall semester begins on Monday.
