5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are many seminars dealing with problems such as this, and many requirements that students have to meet. We have to take an online class educating us on these problems, and it is always fresh on our minds. This campus is extremely safe.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors here are amazing and extremely dedicated to what they teach. All of my classes are generally small, so it allows more discussion and one on one time between the professor and student. It is easy to express opinions and ideas within classroom settings, as they normally do not get refuted, but discussed.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career services are extremely dedicated to helping you find a job or internship. There are also student workers for everything within the campus, providing many jobs for the students.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love my dorm, or Residential College. It's extremely nice, and it is newly renovated. The society here is extremely accepting, and the College Head is awesome.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not a part of the Greek Life, but a few of my friends are, and they love it! They're easily accepted and have already made tons of new friends.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I cannot wait to play intramural sports! The recreation and wellness center is amazing here, and I try to go to it every day. It's very accessible to regular students as well as athletes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My college is a friendly environment with much to offer, from clubs to societies to Greek life, it's got it all! The professors are super cool and fun, but they completely get their job done.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have liked almost all of my classes so far, because the sizes are small and most professors try to know you individually, only a few have been bad.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school will be beneficial for me as a pre-vet major because it will allow me to be eligible for an in state tuition program for vet school.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We are asked to complete the safety thing for sexual assault ad told where to go and what to do. we are also alerted when a sexual assault has been reported, by email.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are some issues when it comes to heating and ac in the rooms being switched but other than that it seemed good.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not in a sorority yet, but i did try to get into sigma alpha which is the agriculture one, and might try again.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not really involved in the sports but i hear about it aroud campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Its a smaller school and I'm an agriculture major, it feels as if my agriculture class teachers really care a lot and get to know you individually.

Overall Experience: My biggest complaint is the structure of my particular program. I find myself taking some classes that I don't really see as necessary to my degree, but because it's under the umbrella of English, I still have to take them. However, the professors in my field agree with me and are regularly working to modify the program to better fit the needs of the students. The courses are varied in structure and difficulty, as well as involvement necessary. But there are so many courses offered, it's incredible. The biggest classes are general science lectures, but the labs are split up, so it really doesn't feel that big. I think the biggest class I had, during my time in an education degree, was 35 people, and the smallest was 6.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: We have a career fair every semester. Recently, with the population of the campus growing, we now have separate career fairs for technology fields, business fields, nursing, and education, in addition to an overall career fair. The opportunities are very present. A number of individuals that I know were actually hired here right after graduating because the people who make this campus the best are the people who have been here to experience it. So it's nice to know that the people helping me succeed have been in exactly the same position I'm in now.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: It's a bunch of young adults smashed together, still going to school, and likely having parties and social events. Obviously, it's not perfect. There have been some sexual assaults and minor robberies on or near campus but I have never been in a position where I felt unsafe. The campus police are pretty quick to respond and also send out alerts to students and faculty when an incident has occurred, to keep us informed. On campus, there are emergency call boxes everywhere, that immediately connect you with campus police and I don't believe any are more than 3 minutes away from the station. We also have regular patrols during the day, at night, and available on-call if you find yourself in a position where you feel unsafe. They have walked be back to my dorm one night because I got out of rehearsal late and I just didn't feel right leaving by myself.

Campus Housing: They are college dorms, so the standard types aren't luxurious but they're definitely adequate. I've lived in two different dorms in two different parts of campus and I enjoyed them both fairly well. Some of the older buildings are actually the oldest on campus, so they're in the process of being renovated right now. In the dorm circle, where most of the buildings are, there is also quick access to the stadium, workout facility, dining services, convenience store, and many of the intramural courts. There are different tiers of housing, so you can choose based on your need for comfort and your financial abilities. Some academic scholarships do include a housing scholarship, and any sort of leadership activity with the residential college will also make you eligible for a housing scholarship.

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big on campus, but not in a negative way. I've never felt out of the loop because I wasn't part of a sorority. I was very included by friends, even those who were involved in Greek life. I was often invited to the events and got to meet their sisters and brothers and feel like I could be a part of their group without needing to pledge to the organization. No one ever pressured me into pledging, which was nice. Most students assume almost everyone is Greek, just because of how big it is on campus, and because of that, most people don't really carry the negative stereotypes of Greeks. Some organizations have a reputation on campus but that's to be expected anywhere.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The professors really care about the students and the environment is so welcoming and supportive for a great college education and experience

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.

3 College Junior

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.
