Murray State University is a great school. It is not very big and overwhelming but still large enough to have everything you want. I absolutely love that it is located in a rural small town because everything is within walking distance but a small town has its disadvantages too. If you are looking for an area with a bunch of crazy things to do off campus this is not the place for you. The only thing I would change would be better advertisement of all the awesome events on campus all of the time.
