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.

Great academic school, one of the best top notch Agriculture schools in the state of Kentucky. Small classroom sizes, makes your classmates and professors feel more like family than strangers. Overall beautiful campus with an enthusiastic vibe in the air. Great college to attend.

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.

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.
