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

The worst thing about Murray State University is the lack of availible transportation. While the campus is within decent walking distance it would be nice to take a shuttle out to the farms and various other locations on the campus that are too far to walk.

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

I picked my school based on the scenery, because my outdoor surroundings make me the happiest. Choose your school on what is most important to you, and you will be happy. Don't be afraid to transfer schools if your taste and interests change!

What's unique about your campus?

The people are laid back and helpful yet education is still priority. Diversity is big, but Murray is small, so cultural connection is bound to transpire.

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

Extensive pressure is put on high school students about finding the 'right fit' in a college. Although I do recommend finding a place that suits you, many are led to believe that can only be one place. Decide first the approximate size of student body you want and what kind of area would be desirable to live for the next four years. Look at the programs you are interested in and how you see them shaping your future. Cost is important and careful consideration should be taken to look at scholarships. Imagine your life immediatly after college and how freeing it would be to have little or no debt but do not compromise the quality of education for this feeling. DON'T STRESS! You are not married to the school you start out at. Find somewhere you'll like spending time and take social life into consideration-The coffee shop on the corner you'll snuggle up in on Saturday's ... and the exchange student that will broaden your horizons. Be optimistic about the new people you'll meet and the things you'll learn, not only in lecture but the first 8 times you scorch your microwavable macaroni dinner!

Any kind of person can attend Murray State we have a little bit of everything, as long as you can live without the city life.

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

The best advice that I can give is that any college is going to be whatever you make of it. Not only make sure that your school has good acedmics, but check out the extra curricular activities so that you can be invovled on campus. Getting out of the dorm room and being involved in clubs, sports, or fraternities and sororites, is a great way to meet people, network, and get the most out of you college experience. When you go visit your prosepective schools, ask the students themselves their opinions about the school and what type of things to expect. This way you get a more realistic outlook on the school. Once you decide on the right college, you need to stay focused coming into school. That first semester there will be a lot of distractions with parties every weekend and other activities, but always remember that you are at college to get a good career and academics should always come first.
