I'm going to be a freshman this year at Western. I'll be living in the Pearce Ford Tower. Everyone i've talked to have acted like that was the worst place i could have gotten. I'm just wondering if it is really that bad. Just want some reviews on the Dorm. Thanks.

I lived there my Sophmore year and didn't have any peculiar experiences; however, Central dorm was a different story. I was sitting at a study carol on the second floor and the door knob did a 360. I immediately got up and opened the door and nothing was there. Since I lived at PFT; however, there has been at least two or three deaths. It seems like that after that young lady was murdered at Poland hall that there have been between four or five campus deaths since then. My Mom went there in 69' and my whole family are Western Alumni's and nothing like that happened before....very mysterious don't you think. I would not worry, ghosts can't hurt you.

Just don't get in the middle of all the gang wars between the
Louisville homies and the Florida hoods that take place on a
regular basis around PFT. But we're not supposed to talk about
that publicly. We supposed to celebrate this "diversity." And also
be prepared for a lot of middle of the night fire alarms and
occasional lock downs when there are gun shots.

PFT isn't as bad as it used to be. They just renovated most of it and also added a new food court down stairs.

PFT is the worst dorm on campus but considering that the rest of them look like a Hilton hotel, I wouldn't take it too seriously.

It's what college is about. NEW EXPERIENCES! Have fun at WKU, I know I did!

When school starts in August, all of the residence halls on campus will be completely renovated (at a total cost of around $80 million over the past 10 years). PFT is no exception. Last summer, the lobby and the top 7 floors were gutted and completely redone. This summer, the remaining floors were done the same. New paint, new floors, new ceiling, brand new furniture, the works!

The community there is very unique, as with each building. No 2 buildings are the same, that's the beauty of living on campus.

And there is a food court right next door with a Popeye's Chicken, Zoca burritos, Edy's ice cream, and a small convenience store.

And, the PFT parking lot got completely redone this summer....

Good luck in your freshmen year at WKU!

It's good to read that there have been such great improvements at PFT.
Sorry for my earlier rant.

Watch out for the flying bullets......seriously! And the elevators are #%^*@, your stomach goes two or three floors higher than you do when they go up and you hear your knees and back crack when it stops on a fast descent down. And lock you door at all times.....the thieves pray on freshmen, "you leave it, you lose it" should be the school motto. It's been years since I've been up there, but it used to be two ppl to a room and one kitchen and one community bath per floor.....a lot of creeps were rumored to hang out (hide out is more like it), but maybe that's gotten better with the clamp-down on ID'ing ppl when they enter the lobby (after all the murders, rapes, and robberies). Within a year....move off campus, there are some great places to live, and you'll actually enjoy the college experience better!!! Oh, and forget bringing a car if you plan on staying on campus, there is no place to park it and it WILL be broken into!!!!!!

I live on campus the last three semesters. PFT is all about getting the right floor. But there are always at least 3 thefts reported in the paper ever week from PFT. And people that are ignorant loud and think they're gangster all seem to be in front of the building every night. ( dont get me wrong there are good people there too but it seems like that's where all the idiots go) I had to change rooms cause they were so loud. Anyway choice is yours but if I were you I'd go with Minton or Poland (the murder was a long time ago and security is tight now)

PFT is the ghetto. I'd rather commute 45 minutes than live there.

I graduated in '09. I lived in Bemis my freshman year '05 and PFT '06, and off campus the last 2 years. The dorms I'd avoid are PFT, Keen, and Gilbert. The nice ones are Bemis, Barnes, Northeast, Southwest, Bates and minton. Freshman should try for Bemis and Barnes and upperclassmen should try to get Northeast and Southwest. I'd say all of the dorms or equally safe, or unsafe depending on how you look at it. After the incident in Poland, they really cracked down on visitors. Even if you are a student and live in another dorm, the resident of that dorm has to check you and and you have to give the front desk an ID and they keep track of everyone in and out. it should be common sense to lock your door no matter where you live. One good thing about living in PFT is that they are more laid back about drinking and being loud. In Bemis they'd search your room and call the cops if they thought you were drunk. In PFT they laugh at you and tell you to go to your dorm. All in all, I had a fun time in PFT. But I wouldn't want to live there again!

I am a student living in PFT currently, honestly I have to say I love it I have great floor mates, had an awesome roommate and made great friends. It really depends on floor. People always vary but really it's not that bad. Just remember to lock your door, befriend the RA it will benefit you greatly, and also be prepared for like 5 AM Fire drills. Also be ready to WALK its a long ways a way to the top of the hill. But if anything it'll be fine. PFT has greatly improved since the renovation and security improvements so it's okay.

Ha. Ha. Too bad you couldn't live up to it. But relax, you'll like PFT, and you'll meet lots of guys.
