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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Murray state is an amazing school. Everyone is very friendly there and they are all about getting others involved. The community participation makes you feel like you are at your home away from home. The class size is not too big to the point that you feel like the professor doesn't know you exist. It's also not too small for you to get singled out. I look forward to attending my freshman year there in the fall. GO Racers!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Murray State! Teachers are accessible and extremely knowledgeable. The curriculum is rigorous and really encourages understanding of the subject. The campus is safe and students are friendly. If you don't make a friend here, you must be hiding in your room! There are many on and off campus dining options to satisfy any craving. Study abroad options are abundant and well planned.

It's a beautiful school. Everyone I have met there has been extremely warm and welcoming. The campus and class sizes are fairly small and it makes it much easier on me. I start college here in the fall and I'm very excited for things to come. There's simply so much to do here!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Murray State University is the best decision I have ever made. I was all set to go to a different university, when for some reason, I changed my mind and ended up here at the last second. Even the first weekend here, the welcoming activities introduced me to some of the best friends I have ever had. I go to class and the professors actually know my name and how I am doing because the class sizes are not overwhelmingly large. Murray State is what you make it. If you want a big college feel, you can join Greek life or get involved in student government or one of the other many clubs or extracurricular groups they offer. Intramural sports are huge and help you meet so many people! However, Murray State does not have to feel huge, as on my walk to class every day (only 10 minute walks, tops), I could point out at least three people I see that I know. Murray State truly feels like home to me and so many of my friends, and I cannot imagine going anywhere else. The professors push you to be the best you can be, and although this past semester has been the hardest one of life, I have learned so much and am leaving it knowing that I did my best and am one step closer to being prepared for graduate school and my life after.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Murray state is an amazing place to be. I have never been somewhere on campus where there isn't a friendly person and theres always a chance to make new friends. There truly is a place for everyone on campus no one is ever left out. If you don't wanna eat in the main cafeteria there are plenty of other places to go I personally recommend the pony express and the T-room. Come check us out ASAP!! You will not regret it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Murray State is a wonderful university with excellent classes and a safe, diverse, and accepting campus. With a greatly qualified faculty and staff, there is not a moment where students do not have full resources to expand their curiosity and knowledge. Student life is also greatly welcoming and there are opportunities for every student with any interest.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have attended Murray State University for both my undergraduate and graduate degree. Murray is a small town, therefore the student population of MSU is small. Do not let this alarm you: there is plenty to do on campus at all times. Whether you're in a Greek organization, religious, artsy, sporty, or just enjoy Netflix and chilling, you'll always have something to do. Additionally, the faculty is almost always available to meet and talk with you. If you're shy (like me) and dislike talking face-to-face, most of the faculty have responsive emails and are excited to have students chat with them. The main issues with MSU is lack of funding. Tuition has rose the past few semesters, so many students are displeased. However, MSU is still a cheap school compared to others in Kentucky. Additionally, MSU may not look fancy in comparison to other schools, but the appearance of facilities should not be why you attend a school. You should attend because the school provides you the best educational resources possible. Murray State has competent, kind faculty, engaged students, and plenty of places to explore for a small town.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was very impressed with all that Murray State had to offer. I went on a thorough tour of the campus and met with faculty, staff, and students. I was amazed with the one on one session I received from the staff in the architectural engineering program. I am looking forward to becoming a future Racer.
