Photos that are in the photo rotation on the WKU.edu homepage are selected according to relevance, timeliness and often coincide with events on campus, appropriate seasons, etc.  If you have a high resolution photo from an event that falls within these parameters, please feel free to email webservices@wku.edu to request inclusion in the homepage rotation.  We cannot guarantee a length of time that your photo will remain in the rotation, but we will do our best to accommodate your request.  We do not typically advertise events in the homepage rotation space unless they have a very broad reach.
