WKU in the News

  • WKU students set off to chase, study storms: For Pierce Larkin, a meteorology student at WKU, chasing and studying storms across the Midwest last summer was the time he connected school to the real world.
  • BG woman turns miniature furniture into online business: The furniture Rebecca Stewart crafts by hand is distinct. Whether it’s a sofa, bed, cabinet or even a kitchen sink, each piece is small enough to fit in your hand. On the second floor of her Bowling Green home, Stewart works in a bedroom that’s been converted into her workshop. A miniature house in the French chateau style overlooks her workspace, where pieces of doll-sized furniture at a 1-to-12 scale stand on regular-sized desks and shelves. For Stewart, who is frequently busy attending WKU athletic events with her husband, WKU athletic director Todd Stewart, her workshop serves as her getaway.
