I attend WKU as well as my daughter. I am so tired of the situations that surround her dorm (twice in 1 month). Something has to be done! WKU is going to lose students if they do not achieve a resolution to this problem!! I would feel much safer if her dorm was not co-ed. Who knows where to start? I don't know. I do recall the terror I experienced as I ran across campus searching for my daughter while people were warning me from locked doors to seek shelter. It was very frightening! I cannot imagine the feeling of the parents that did not have the opportunity to search their child. The phones were tied up and nearly impossible to make calls. Please do something about this WKU!! Let our children feel safe to get educated!!

I have an idea, ban all guns. Law breaking criminals won't be allowed to use guns if they are illegal!

wku needs a good house cleaning....all students involved in fights or any other illegal activity need to be sent home.......for a small campus there is too much crap that goes on there.....send the thugs home so the real students can attend classes in peace............dont whine about a false alarm being raised....just be glad it was a false alram....this time.

I was there that day, I didnt have the text messaging at the time but I was in Mass Media when the msg was sent out. I was freaking out because I have never had anything like this happen to me. But I would like know the "REAL STORY" was they shots fired or not? hearing two differnt things isnt good, As students we should know what is happening and the truth...How can a person go to school and do better for themselves when they don't feel safel.
