What is your overall opinion of this school?

Murray State is a very friendly school where you know and recognize many people but that doesn’t mean you have to talk to everyone. Everyone you see does smile at you or says hi and the class sizes are great! There is a lot of culture and diversity and for the most part everyone respects each other. I don’t ever feel scared or alone, I always feel safe and the people are so nice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a great college to go to. It has great opportunities in whatever you want, and is really safe. They have a lot of financial aid help, so if paying for college is a big deal for you (like me) then Murray State is the college to go to. Murray is a good college town with very few incidents with drugs or alcohol, and the police are rarely called. No matter where you live on or off campus, there are great places to board for the semester. The food at our dining hall Winslow has almost anything you could want to eat and all together this is an awesome college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

One of the best things about Murray State University is its size. Even though I'm shy and don't have a lot of friends, it feels like I see someone I recognize almost every time I step outside, and it's also easy to get around the campus. Class sizes are small, so everybody gets to know each other and helps each other. I have also had some really amazing teachers here, and have managed to get an on-campus job, on-campus volunteer work, and club activities and events to look forward to all the time. The library has many resources for students, including computers (with easy-to-use printing and scanning), many kinds of books, and several rooms to study in. I like going to the pool in the Wellness Center. I also enjoy the on-campus dining options, although some students hate the food here, so it depends on the person. I also like my dorm room in Old Richmond. We have a connected bathroom and tons of storage space, much more than at other colleges I've toured. I can't say I've had any problems with people being noisy. Overall, I think there are colleges out there that have better features and resources, but I was still impressed by all the great opportunities at Murray State.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Murray State University is a school with something for everyone! The town is friendly and the students are as well. Most of the professors are readily accessible for questions or help on projects. The tuition and fees are reasonable. I would choose Murray State over and over again!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Murray State has always been where I wished to attend college. Murray state is the only campus I felt like I could feel at home and still be miles away from my home. Out of all eighteen colleges I toured, my junior and senior year of high school, it was the most welcoming to me. I felt that Murray State would open great opportunities for me in finding myself and my future career. Murray state’s safety and welcoming feeling, for me, comes from its very small town and teacher to student ratio, where teachers are actually able to learn their students names and interact with them outside of class. A teacher and student relationship is a very important part of learning and the school experience in my opinion and I am grateful to have that relationship at Murray State University. It may not be one of the most out standing schools, but it is the right school for me and that is all that is important.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Murray State is a good school that, in my opinion, is a victim of bad circumstances. With the way Kentucky state legislature radically cut funding to its state universities, Murray has been left to try its best to pick up the peices. Al lthe food has gone down drastically in quality (soon to be bought out by a corporation) and many important student resources were drawn back or cut all together, including the free heath clinic. My family is so poor that we cannot afford insurance. If I get sick with anything more pressing than a cold, I will either be racked with medical bills or just be ravaged by illness. The academics themselves are great, but with mandates of living on campus for two years unless you live within 50 miles and mandatory meal plans with disappointing food, I would only ever go here as a commuter.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Murray State University! It’s campus is beautiful, the people are friendly, and there is always some where to go hang out. Whether that is Winslow, the art gallery, the zen garden, or the quite section of the library, there is always somewhere to go.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school to be a part of. The community is small and it is very easy to get involved and feel close to the campus. The surrounding community is also very supportive of the school and oftne offer discounts to students. Greek life is a bit part of the school mainly because it is so small there is not always something to keep you busy everyday. But the life is nice and I often feel safe on campus. Everyone is nice and supportive of each other and the professors love to help in anyway possible, nothing is too out of the way for them. It is a great place to challenge yourself while keeping that hometown feel away from home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The atmosphere is amazing! Everyone is so kind and loves it there. It has everything you could want near by but has a home town feel. The food places cater to a large ranges of diets which is convenient. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and give you plenty of help.
