What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

It's a small friendly campus. You can walk from end to end in 10 minutes. The teachers are very helpful and friendly. I live the class sizes.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The place is dead on the weekends. It's a suitcase college.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would advise parents and students to really take into consideration going to a University that is accredited. Most of the scholarships I have applied for require you to be attending an accredited University. Online degree programs are not always the best choice. You want to choose a college that you will be proud to put on your resume. Look into the different awards the college has been given as well as particular programs or organizations affiliated with your major. Take a tour of the campus, talk to the students on campus, and talk to the campus advisors. If you plan on living on campus, find out about their housing programs. If you are a non-traditional student, like myself, ask about any daycare programs they may have and even possible work-study opportunities. If you plan on being involved in extra-curricular activities, you may ask about those as well. And, once you choose a University, really be familiar with their policies, deadlines, fees, and become well acquainted with your advisor who can answer your questions along the way. Most of all, ENJOY it....it goes by so fast!

What kind of person should attend this school?

A down to earth, motivated person who wants a great public education at low cost in a small town setting should attend Morehead State University.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is that due to the low cost, there are students that attend for the wrong reasons.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

This school is unique in that it has a very good student to faculty ratio. This allows for classes to rarely exceed 30 students, which helps with students being able to associate and interact more during a class.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

In order to do well in college it is simple, go to class and be engaged. When a teacher sees that you are trying they are more likely to help you more in and out of the class room and also if they see you trying they are much more likely to give you extensions if you ever need one.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing is that there is not much to do in this area. The closest large cities are an hour in any direction, which isn't necessarily a timely drive.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The advice that I would give most to parents and/or students when choosing the right college, would be a college that strives for success. Easily accomadated, and friendly. Somewhere they can feel safe at all time, receive the best education of their ability and somewhere they feel like they belong. If finances are a problem, there are many ways to pay for college through financial aid, and student loans, not having money should never be an excuse. While choosing the right college, the parents and/or students should narrow down a school that they can all agree on, feel comofrtable with and make sure it offers enough options to choose from, when deciding what they want to pursue their major in. Know one knows for sure that the college they choose will be the right one. Sometimes one just has to take the risk, but if you take a tour of the school and feel at home, than maybe that unviersity or community college is for them. Attending a college, is one of the most important decisions one could make. It maps out the rest of your life.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Morehead State is a really good college, but a person needs to make sure that the college they are looking at is the best for what they want to study. I chose nursing and MSU is the best school for nursing. It is important to research colleges and find what they are known for.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known how to study better. It was hard for me to adjust when I was a freshman so I got a lot of "C"s and now I am paying for that. I wish I would have been more prepared to to make good grades because once your GPA is low it is hard to bring up. Now that I have been in school 5 years I finally feel like I know how to study, but no matter what it seems that it is never going to be enough to get a 3.0 GPA.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

We have been made to pay for things that not all of us are going to use, like a new basketball court, recreational area. I do not use the phacility because I don't live on campus, and and have a job and child outside of school, but I paid to help build it. Another thing is the parking is horrible!!!!! There is a big lot with enough spaces but it is soooooo far away and the shuttle bus that runs there sometimes takes a while to get there and then you have to wait for people to get on.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't turn away from State Universities, or assume that you have to go Ivy League to get a first rate education. The better known the college, there's the likelihood that it'll be more expensive (sometimes needlessly so), bigger and harder to navigate, and involve larger, more uninvolved classrooms. Visit the colleges, explore the campuses and the surrounding communities. Pay attention to the class offerings, but look for character, too.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I'd known to be more careful when it came to taking unncessary classes.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about the school, and it's not really a complaint, is that the curriculum has been shifted to focus more on majors more scientific and business oriented, and while there haven't been cutbacks in my discipline, I worry that won't be the way of it for long.
