4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is a big part of Murray State University. Most students live on campus at least during some point in their time at Murray. The housing on campus is called residential colleges because the housing at Murray strives for a community atmosphere. There are programs and events through housing on campus that students can be involved in. The cost of the housing is not too expensive, but most of the time students on campus either choose to have or are required to have a meal plan which is a little pricey.

Athletics: Basketball is probably the biggest sport on campus. It has a pretty good turnout and people enjoy the games. Intermurals are also fairly big on campus. They are something anyone can play and people tend to enjoy and get involved with.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I personally am involved in a Greek organization. There is a very strong Greek presence on campus and it is a great way to make many friends and become involved on campus. My main complaint with Greek life on campus is that there is not the traditional Greek row. Only two of the sororities have houses and not all of the fraternities have houses either. However, the Greek organizations at Murray State University are not as expensive as they are at other schools and they still run very well.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love Murray State University. The majority of the teachers truly care about their students and classes are set up in a way that encourages students to learn. Some of the classes I have taken haven been challenging but I have never had a problem with getting help with those courses.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are many organizations on campus that help students prepare for life after graduation. There are clubs specifically designed to further students in their field of study as well as multiple types of honor organizations.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Murray State University does a very good job at keeping their students safe. On top of it already being an extremely friendly school, there is a strong police presence on campus and throughout the town. The university has also recently started using the LiveSafe app. The campus is well lit and there are multiple emergency buttons throughout campus.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I was able to apply free because they came to the local community college campus that I was enrolled in.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I take classes online so I'm not familiar with the athletics on campus. I will say that they have a pretty great basketball team.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Murray State University has been the absolute bet so far. They have professors that want you to learn the material so they go above and beyond what is expected of them. I'm very impressed with how they teach.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The degree is worth it in really education and nursing actually.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have no confidence in anything health and safety related.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The older buildings are horrible. The students pay too much money for building floods to ruin property that belongs to the student. I say its best to live off campus because of the kind of dormitories that are there.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I've never been interested in Greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not all that into the sports there.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I had a great experience with MSU. I've met some pretty interesting people and some not so understanding people. Honestly, I have had so many people tell me that I don't deserve to be in college because of my financial situation. But, that's why I am going to try my very best to stay in college because without these scholarships I won't have a future. I have been actively looking for jobs but I haven't had any luck attaining one. So I am trying every avenue before calling a quit.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If I were to go through the choosing process again I would choose Murray every time. This is because the professors are very flexible and understanding, the students are so friendly and they make you feel like family, and everyone on campus is willing to help you whenever you're in need.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have great instructors that are willing to explain something if I do not understand . They are excellent with all of us.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my school, there is so much school spirit and excitement through out campus everyday. The professors are super helpful and are there for because they want to see you succeed.
