Murray State University Top Questions

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


Take your time in determining which school is a good fit. Since I am an adult returning to college, I strongly recommend that high school graduates take time before they enter college to get involved in some type of community service. Actually, I feel that should be mandatory in our country. At 18, most students have no idea what they want to do with their lives and many have no idea what goes on in the world outside their own city or town. I thought long and hard before returning to school and then wanted to find a place that was easily accessible not only its locale but accessible from the standpoint of how the university handled students like myself, the non-traditional student. Murray State was the perfect fit. My experience, so far, has been excellent. I never thought after getting my Associate of Science degree in 1975 that I would ever be able to return to school and keep up. I have surprised myself and my university has been very supportive. Size of the campus must be taken into consideration. On our campus, you do not have to be another number unless you want to.
