“The Dating Doctor” will visit WKU tonight.

Relationship expert David Coleman, known across the country as “America’s Real-Life Hitch,” a reference to the 2005 movie “Hitch,” which stars Will Smith as a “date doctor” who helps people with their relationships.

Coleman will lecture in Mass Media Auditorium tonight from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Kenneth Johnson, assistant director of Student Activities, said Coleman’s experience working with college students was one of the main reasons they decided to bring him to WKU.

“Relationships are a very interesting topic to college students,” Johnson said. “And we like to bring in the things the students are interested in.”

Coleman has become popular across the country and has been named the National Collegiate Speaker of the Year 10 times, most recently in 2010, according to his website.

This is his first time at WKU, Johnson said.

The event is free to students with a WKU ID.
