What is your overall opinion of this school?

Murray State is great school if you're looking for a campus that you can recognize people and become friends with them, but also great for meeting new people every day. There are so many groups and organizations you can join or even create. All Murray students take pride in their major, residential college, sport, club, band, society, and many other groups. Everyone is sure to find a way to fit in at Murray State University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Murray State has become my home away from home and is like a second family to me. From the first day of my freshman year to my first day of my senior year, I have been surrounded by faculty, staff, and students who want nothing but the best for me. Just like in a family, these people go out of their way in order to help me grow, learn, and flourish as an undergrad student. The class size is small which allows for personal relationships with On top of this Murray has been voted one of the friendliest cities in America and it shows daily in the small gestures that everyone does. I am a confident, well rounded woman who has learned so much about my future career in self due to this university and for that I am forever thankful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Murray State is a home away from home. Coming from a small town in Southern Illinois, I was not really looking for something large and overwhelming. It is not uncommon to see a familiar face even though I do not know everyone here, or even know who they are. I see Murray's campus and student body as a unified group and there are always activities or clubs to partake in. Greek life at Murray is very predominant and it is hard to find people who are not involved. The Greek organizations are also very unified and it is amazing to see how supportive we are of each other and the causes each organization works hard to support. The professors are all extremely helpful and class sizes usually remain small which encourages more student to teacher interaction and a higher quality of learning. The location of this university is probably one of it's perks. Being only two hours from Nashville and three from St. Louis or Louisville gives plenty of options of things to do or places to go for a weekend. Living in Kentucky the last couple of years have been a delightful experience for me. A small homey college town is one of the best experiences a college can offer. I am very proud to be a student here and I love to have friends and family visit to show them around a place I call my home. I have never felt overwhelmed or bored at this university and I have found the perfect balance at Murray State University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Personally, I love Murray State and the town of Murray. Everyone looks out for the best interest of the students, while still maintaining a structural learning environment. The president (Dr. Davies) is so sweet, and loves to make you feel at home. He will try to personally know each student, and take a selfie with them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Murray State is a charming and widely diverse campus. There's always something to do, whether it's within the individual residential colleges or campus wide. You can find groups and organizations for every interest, from tabletop gaming to community service. Murray encourages students to get involved and discuss current events both in and out of class. It has a strong LGBT+ program and students of all genders and sexual preferences will feel safe and accepted on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Murray State University is an excellent college to attend. It is located in a local small town, so there are plenty of friendly people. However, there is plenty of things to do around town! There will always be something to do for the four years, so do not worry! The campus environment is very safe. The staff and student body are always so welcoming and always up for a chat! There is plenty to do, but you can always just look around the beautiful campus. There is a reason for everyone to come.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a freshmen here at Murray State University and I absolutely love it! Before coming I was nervous about making friends and fitting in, but I quickly settled down and now this place is my home. One of the main reasons I chose to come here was because of their amazing pre-vet program that not many other schools offer. I get to take classes working directly with animals unlike most students hoping to apply to vet school. I believe coming to Murray State was the best decision I could have made in hopes of one day getting into a vet school and pursuing my dream of helping animals.
