It’s WKU’s token trademark: the Hill. Every Hilltopper has a love or hate relationship with the beloved landscape. But regardless of how you may feel about the climb, trips up the Hill are an inevitable part of life at WKU. Whether you walk straight up the middle from Pearce-Ford Tower to Cherry Hall or take every shortcut possible, you are guaranteed a workout. The real question is: How much of a workout is it? And just how many trips up the Hill will it take to really earn the orange chicken at Panda Express?
