Murray State College is a great beginning to the college life. It gives off a home feeling. Murray is a smaller campus so it is very easy to get to know new people if not everyone. With it being a smaller school, it provides more one on one with the professors and tutors. The staff is friendly and really shows that they want the students to succeed. Murray State College also shows that they care for every student. They made adjustments during this pandemic to ensure as much safety as they can while also giving us the best experience. I am very thankful I chose to be an Aggie!

I am a new student at Murray State College but I have felt welcomed each time I have been there. Everyone has been ready to help me when I have questions and I like the size of the campus and I feel at home there. I am excited about starting my classes there in August and can't wait to achieve my goals and to graduate with a nursing degree.

Murray State College is a 2 year college that most students like to attend right out of high school. Murray is not the biggest, well known college, but it definitely has its perks! One of the great things about Murray is the small classes and personal interaction with the professors. Another great thing about my college is that you get to know lots of people on campus. I graduate Murray State next fall and I am not sure how I will make it at a 4-year university.

The facility is very clean inside and outside within the classrooms, lunchroom, library, and dorms. The teachers are very helpful in every way they can possibly be. The food here is pretty decent. Could use some flavoring on some foods but pretty darn good.

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

    I'm a Vietnamese student and has lived in the US about 3 year, so my high school was in my country, Vietnam. However, I feel so lucky to study in this inviroment because people here have many opportunities to choose a college or university, but not in my country. I cannot forget years in high school with the heaviest pressure to get in universities through the most special and tensional test every year. Students are always in awareness with pressures from family, teachers and society as if when you get fail, you will be out the game and you career seemed to be in the dark. As a good luck, i did not take that test because it had happend in time when I moved to America. Even though I studied hard and always think about my desity after that national test, I has not assured I had 100% confidence to pass it. If I have a chance to talk to myseft as high school senior, I just want to say to him: " don't quit if you fail, there are still many ways for you, but try with all your best and you won't regret about that."

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

    How importent it was to do well in college and how it would make me feel to get everything that I dreamed of having.
