    Music Education, Computer Science, Pre-Vet, Ag, small town students or urban based students. Morehead is a great school with wonderful administrators, and deserves more credit than it gets. I am part of the Music Education department, and I love it. There is such a community here. Students really help each other out and the professors will create a personal bond with you. If you want a small town and a small campus, this is the place for you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Try to look at scholarships specific to this school in September of your senior year. There are several that are specific to this time when some people are just starting to look. If you get your foot in the door during this time, you will do much better financially. Also, make sure you are ready to wake up at 2 am for fire drills. Yes, this will happen at any school you go to.

    Bang for the buck

    Morehead's tuition is extremely affordable. I don't spend anywhere near what everyone else spends to get the same education. The housing is mediocre, but it is relatively affordable. One of the things that I think Morehead should offer would be a better option for younger students to live off campus. Overall, however, I feel like my money is well spent. There is a tuition calculator on Morehead's website that will tell you just how much you would spend in different scenarios.

    Am enjoying being here

    I moved to Morehead from Louisville, so obviously this was a huge change for me. If anyone else out there is thinking about going to a small college in a rural setting vs. a large one in a urban setting, opt for the one in the middle of nowhere. Morehead is tiny, and true- there isn't a lot to do...if you don't look. Make friends and Morehead is just as great as NYC. I've lost my wallet a few times, and every time it has been turned in or returned to me within 24 hours. The safety here is what I like the most. I have never felt in danger. Not once. I can walk around by myself at night and not get hurt. Morehead was rated one of the safest schools and it shows.

    Am learning a lot

    The great thing about MSU is that the professors really care. The class sizes are small, and almost always the professors know your name. Most of my professors have doctoral degrees, and really know what they are talking about. Any time I have ever had a question, they have been able to help. The classes are challenging, but manageable. It all depends on how hard you want to push yourself. No matter what level you are, you will learn something here. The professor will tailor the class to you.

    Great for these types of students

    Great school for anyone looking for a place that is not too big, but not too small. Anyone looking for a great education, a good college experience, and good relationships with people will love this school.

    Tips for prospective students

    Ask questions. Everyone around here is willing to help and answer any questions you have about anything. Literally, anything. It is a great place to go to school.

    Bang for the buck

    One of the cheapest colleges I know of besides a community college. A good education at a cheaper price is never a bad combination.

    Am enjoying being here

    I really enjoy it here. The summer, spring, and fall months are usually nice. When it snows it the winter time and when the leaves change in the fall the mountains are gorgeous. It is a beautiful campus with friendly individuals and staff members.

    Am learning a lot

    I have learned a lot the past few years I've been here. It has great teachers. Of course, there are a few who everyone has a problem with, but the majority will do anything to help you out with any problems. The teachers are always willing to listen and be of assistance in any way possible.

    Great for these types of students

    I think Morehead is great for any subject matter major students. I know the education program is a big deal, but I am a psychology major and I think it works great for me! Also, I think MSU is great for people who want a small campus, but not too small. I love that I don't have to walk very far, ever.

    Tips for prospective students

    I recommend getting involved on campus on move in day and meeting new people. The block party is a lot of fun for that! I also reccomend you live in a four person suite, in Mignon or West Mignon. I love having all the room, my own shower and bathroom.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition at MSU was one of the many things that made me chose Morehead. It is reasonable, and they will help you with scholarships and financial aide in any way possible to make sure you can pay and get a good education. A lot of people end up paying absolutely nothing.

    Am enjoying being here

    Everyone always says there is nothing to do at Morehead, but that's because they don't look! There are always events going on on campus, & the University send you emails every week so you know the events that week. I love that! Also, off campus there are great places to eat, a good amount of shopping, and you're just 30 to 45 minutes from big cities like Lexington.

    Am learning a lot

    The amazing thing about learning at Morehead is the fact that your classes are small and the professors know you by name. If I raised my hand in my psychology class, I know the professor would answer Yes, Ashley? every time, & he could always help. Also, I really liked how the material was presented. The slides you cover in class are almost always on Blackboard afterwards, which is very helpful for you to study outside of class.

    Campus Safety

    MSU has their own police force, there are cops always patrolling, the cops are very friendly and will help you any way they can!

    Greek Life

    I have witnessed the Greek Life on campus, and I am planning on joining next semester because it seems like so much fun!

    Clubs and Activities

    There are plenty of ways to get involved at MSU! The list is endless! almost anything you could ever want to do, there is probably a club for it!

    Great for these types of students

    Students who want to attend a smaller university without going to a Community college. Want to make lasting friendships.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    They give out free Tshirts like crazy on campus! almost every morning when you walk to class you will see the side walks and stairs chalked up with drawings or updates from Frats and Sororities.

    Bang for the buck

    All of the dorms are pretty awesome, the dining is great, and your professors actually care about their students due to the smaller class sizes they can get to know you better, I think MSU really does give their students a great Bang for their buck!

    What to do for fun

    The Recreation and Wellness Center is great if you love to workout, play racket ball or basket ball, Cave Run Lake is a 15 minute drive from campus but is well worth the trip, in one semester I believe me and my friends went there about 10 times! it is a great place to spend time with friends, or take pictures and such, there is also Tuesday Night Live held at the BCM on campus, they do skits and hold a worship service given By MSU students for MSU students, there are many more things to do on campus as well!

    Food and Dining

    There are plenty of choices of places to eat, my personal favorites are Wingspan (which is really close to all dorms!) and ADUC (which is where they have places like Chick-fil-a, taco bell, ect..) we also have a Starbucks and a Java City on campus!

    Dorm Life

    I love living on campus, I have made many friends just by living in my dorm building, living on campus helps you meet new people which is essential when going away to college

    Academic Rigor

    I believe as long as you pay attention to your professors, and take notes, the classes are challenging but they aren't too difficult

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved! try out for athletic teams, sororities, frats, join clubs, anything getting involved definitely makes living on campus fun! Try to meet with your adviser at least once every two months, so that you can create a professional relationship with them, this could help you in the long run!

    In three sentences

    Morehead States faculty are very friendly, and most of the professor will help you as much as they can. If you want to go to a University that isn't overly expensive MSU is your best bet! MSU's campus is fairly small but campus life is amazing!

    Greek Life

    The Greek life on campus is incredible. I'm became friends with many individuals who are in sororities and fraternities on campus and was surprised to see just how big of an impact the organizations had on the individuals. My own personal favorite, though, was the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. The traditions that SigEp has adopted are strong and ongoing. It was humbling to see just how strong the bond between the boys in SigEp (as well as in the other Greek orgs.) was.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Eagle Lake was a great place to go for me as a student. It is easily accessible and provided a way to just get out of the city for a bit, to get away from the hustle and bustle of school and inundate myself with the sounds, smells, and sensations of being in nature.

    Bang for the buck

    I'm happy enough with my Morehead experience. It wasn't too expensive for me (so far) because of scholarships and other aid I'm receiving so I am getting a great education for very little money.

    What to do for fun

    The Rec Center was a HUGE improvement as far as recreation goes. There isn't much to do in Morehead and the addition of the Rec Center for students made my stay very enjoyable. It had a great many options for exercise as well as fun and places to go to clear your head.

    Food and Dining

    The dining at Morehead is excellent. There are a lot of places to choose from and lots of different options. Any time you are having a craving you can almost guarantee that some place on campus has it and has it as a meal plan option.

    Dorm Life

    I greatly enjoyed living in the dorms. I made new friends with my neighbors and others as well. It gave me the opportunity to be in a place where I was out on my own without being totally cut off from some of the comforts of home.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the classes were much more difficult than others.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure to do whatever you can to cut through all of the red tape as soon as you possibly can. The sooner everything gets taken care of the less you have to worry about it and the less frustrating it is.

    In three sentences

    Things were alright, but there was too much red tape. It took me forever to get things settled with finances, with my class scheduling for this past semester and for the spring semester, and with everything in general. Things would be much better if there were more efficient methods in place for these things.

    Food and Dining

    i have heard good things about morehead's dining!

    Dorm Life

    i am unsure of this as i will most likely be living off campus. i think it is most-likely very good.

    Academic Rigor

    like any major university, morehead wants students to truly earn what they receive. based off of the requirements for their computer science major, the work will, however, be manageable.

    Tips for prospective students

    mainly, i think you would do what you would for any university: if you are new to the school: research the degrees, meet with an advisor, etc.

    In three sentences

    i am looking into morehead. since they have a campus relatively close to home and they charge in-state tuition for my area, they are by best choice right now after i get my associate's degree and will be moving on to a bachelor's degree in computer science. i am seriously considering attending a meeting in the future.

    Campus Safety

    Morehead is one of the safest campuses around, and not just the campus, but the town. Personally, I feel completely comfortable walking around alone, not at all uneasy. There are usually people out at all hours of the night anyway, but if you are smart and follow the regular safety guidelines, there is nothing to worry about. Campus police regularly patrol the campus - even at night, and there are emergency phones placed all around campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are tons of groups and activities to join or partake in at Morehead State University. If you are interested in something, there will be a place for you, and if not, chances are others here are interested in the same thing, and a new club can be formed. The Student Activities Board is fabulous, and friendly, and will help you with any questions that you have.

    Bang for the buck

    Morehead State University offers a large variety of scholarship opportunities on top of their already relatively low tuition rates. They offer a blanket scholarships to the students applying from Kentucky called the KEESx2 scholarship, where the KEES money that the Kentucky students have already received is automatically doubled at the university.

    What to do for fun

    Although Morehead is a small town, and there isn't much to do around, the students never run out of things to do. We have a fantastic Student Activities Board who keep the campus full of fun things to do. The campus is beautiful, the town people are friendly, and the possibilities are endless.

    Food and Dining

    The main dining hall is our Student Union, ADUC. We have everything available there from pasta, to sandwiches, to chinese, to Chick-fil-a. Meal plans are available in a wide variety, and the staff working are always pleasant and helpful. We also have an all-you-can-eat buffet in the bottom of Alumni Tower, one of our dorms, and a restaurant style eatery called Wing Span which serves wings, burgers, fries, etc. All of these can be purchased by meal plan, or by the university's Beaker Bucks which come with every meal plan.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life at Morehead State University is as expected. The university is in the process of renovating all of the dorms, but as they are, they are nice. The RA's and Advisors are very friendly, but are serious about safety hazards. Rules are rules.

    Academic Rigor

    Academically, Morehead is like a lot of other colleges. You have a wide range of classes available, and the difficulty is up to you. Just like everywhere else, there are good teachers, and bad teachers. Some you will get along with, some you won't - it's the way it goes. Regardless, it's up to the student to make the grades, if you do all of your work and attend the classes, stay organized, and plan ahead, school is completely doable.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take things into your own hands, college is about learning to be individually responsible as much as it is about learning for your career. Put yourself out there and make new friends, life is about networking and it starts here. Get organized and stay organized. Be a good student, a good friend, and a good roommate. Don't hesitate to call any of the offices here if you have a question, all of the faculty are sweet and patient, and will find an answer for you, no matter what. You never have to be left in the dark.

    In three sentences

    Morehead State University is the perfect school for me; Coming from a big city where I blended in to the crowd, a small town like Morehead allows me and my talents to really shine through. Everyone is friendly and supportive, and all of the faculty have a genuine interest in their fields, and strive to help you learn. Morehead is safe, and feels like a home to me now, I wouldn't wish to be anywhere else!

    What to do for fun

    There isn't a whole lot to do for fun unless you join some extracurricular activities. But you can do everything from train with lightsabers to ride horses. So pretty much everything is covered.

    Food and Dining

    Many food choices, including Taco Bell, Chik Fil A, Crouton's(salad), Pao's(sandwiches), Home Zone(country style foods), Mediterranean( pizza, calzones, etc), Fired Up(grill), and Asian Express in ADUC. Also has an on-campus grocery store, a cafeteria, and a burger/wing joint open until 2am.

    Dorm Life

    Depending on the dorm, it can be either wonderful or, well, pretty bad. Steer clear of Cooper and Butler.

    Academic Rigor

    I am a pre-vet student, so I'm taking some rather difficult courses.

    Tips for prospective students

    Register as early as possible and avoid eating at ADUC during lunch hours.

    In three sentences

    Morehead has a very beautiful campus, sprinkled with trees and beautiful architecture. The class sizes are rather small, with most of them being in the twenties. Although parking can be a pain sometimes, the campus is relatively small and easy to walk across.

    Campus Safety

    Morehead is one of the safest campus' in the nation. It has licensed police on campus and safety towers everywhere to reach the police with the push of a button if you need them.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many clubs and activities to choice from and you can even create clubs yourself.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who love the outdoor life would love Morehead.

    Bang for the buck

    Morehead State is very affordable and considering that the gym and sporting events are all free, you definitely get your money's worth.

    What to do for fun

    There is beautiful scenery all around campus. There is a lake actually on campus that you can hike around, canoe in, fish in, etc. There is a huge sports complex free to students, all athletic events are free to students, and there are a ton of clubs.

    Food and Dining

    There are plenty of food options and the food is always up to par.

    Dorm Life

    A lot of the dorms are newly renovated, very nice. Plus they are all. Lose to everything you could need on campus including classes, dining, the gym, the market, etc.

    Academic Rigor

    The teachers at Morehead are very interested in you individually and do their best to teach you everything that will benefit you and help you maintain good grades.

    Tips for prospective students

    To any prospective students, I suggest that you take a college visit to your the campus and see how beautiful it is. Also, if you have picked out a major, talking to the department chair of that major will allow you to see if Morehead is a good choice for you in pursuing that major.

    In three sentences

    Morehead State University is a great place to attend college. The small campus offers a close net community of peers and safety and familiarity. Also, the teachers are great and there are tons of things to do there for study breaks and fun with your friends.

    Campus Safety

    I have never felt unsafe on campus. The police are easy to contact.

    What to do for fun

    Students mostly have to make their own fun. There are parties basically every week if you're into that. But they aren't on weekends; rather most parties happen on Thursday nights.

    Food and Dining

    There are about 7 or 8 options for lunch. The food is decent but the pace of the workers who prepare the food seems to much slower than the students who are trying to get it. At Beaker's students can get breakfast, lunch, or dinner. However, it closes at 8 pm, so if you are an athlete with practice or you have a class at the normal dinner time then you cannot eat there. The food is bland and sometimes you have to wait an unreasonable amount of time to get food. There is not always food available, even during the day. So if you want a late lunch or an early dinner you're out of luck.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is not terrible but it is not great either. The rooms are very small and there is not much storage space.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes are definitely more difficult than others, which is expected at any school. It all depends on your major.

    Tips for prospective students

    Morehead is a good school to go to if you are looking for a lower cost university. If you are going to live in the dorms be prepared to clean often and be comfortable with living in a small space.

    In three sentences

    The university is in a very small town so you have to be able to make your own fun. Some of the professors are not very good. Most of the people are amiable and it is rather easy to make friends.

    Great for these types of students

    Active students, from a small town or suburban setting.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you apply early for scholarships, as there is always a limited supply. When you get here, don't be scared to experiment by taking different kinds of classes and participating in different events. If you put forth the effort, you're bound to find your niche.

    Bang for the buck

    MSU's tuition is affordable regardless, and they offer tons of scholarship and loan opportunities.

    Am enjoying being here

    MSU has a great familial atmosphere. We're not a particularly small college, so there's a diverse group of people for you to become friends with and learn from. At the same time, we're small enough that you don't feel lost in a sea of people. There are so many different groups on campus, Greek and Independent, that there really is something for everyone if you're just willing to put out the effort to get involved.

    Am learning a lot

    I started off as a Studio Art Major here and admittedly struggled with it. I was bored in my classes, so I started to slack off. I started taking some theatre courses, just to see, and I fell in love. Now, I'm learning so much every day that I'm here, and I'm getting experience that will directly affect my career.

    Great for these types of students

    Morehead would be great for someone that is used to living in a small town, or even for someone who is used to living in a big city and would like to live in a smaller town for a change. They have many majors to choose from and I think Morehead is a great university to start out at if you haven't chosen a major yet.

    Tips for prospective students

    Definitely visit the campus once or twice. The campus is beautiful and smaller than other Universities such as UK or EKU. Make sure to make your SOAR date as soon as you're accepted! That way you can choose your classes before other students because they fill up fast.

    Bang for the buck

    Eastern Kentucky University only gave me a half-tuition scholarship, but I got the Commonwealth scholarship from Morehead which is full tuition. They have so many scholarships that you can apply for whether you're a freshman, sophomore, junior or senior.

    Will enjoy being here

    I'm not too fond of the location; there isn't much to do there. They just completed a new recreation center so that should be exciting.

    Will learn a lot

    I plan to pursue a degree in imaging sciences and their program seems to be the best in Eastern Kentucky.

    Campus Safety

    Morehead's campus is a very safe campus that offers rides students shuttles for those who are walking late at night and there is a police station on campus.

    Greek Life

    There are quite a few greeks on campus, I'm a Delta Zeta. The members of the greek life are like a family and are always having mixers and things.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    At the beginning of every fall semester there is a campus wide block party and then an ice cream social.

    What to do for fun

    Morehead is not a very big town so there isn't a whole lot to do. The main thing to do it either go to Buffalo Wild Wings and hang out, or go to the movies. Lexington is an hour away for weekend trips.

    Food and Dining

    There are plenty of options during the day for lunch, after 5 there is only one option and then at 8 another place opens up. There is also a convenience store on campus that is open until 2 a.m.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life isn't bad. Four person rooms are the best because of the personal bathroom, but if you don't mind sharing the bathroom with a floor, the two person rooms are nice as well.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on your major, your classes can be difficult or easy. Most gen. eds. are pretty easy, but you major classes are more demanding.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid to ask for help, and always go to class, it makes a difference with your grades and your professors opinions of you.

    In three sentences

    Morehead is a nice school with professors who are always willing to help. If you struggle in your classes there is a wonderful tutoring lab where you can receive help from students in the same major.

    most college people would put party here, what i do is go to gatti's across the street and play games, go to the park and swing,climb lockege, or play super nintendo in the dorm. not much to do here, but we did get a new center where we have a pool,excersize equipment and other fun things! :d

    Food and Dining

    aduc is pretty expensive, with meal plans you are paying 6 bucks for a chicken sandwich fries and a pop. if you are like me and need more food, go to rfoc it has great food and an all you can eat buffet.

    Dorm Life

    dorm life is great if you like your roommate; if not then just wait it out till the change up day or talk to housing.

    Academic Rigor

    you need to work hard but don't work your butt off. if you do music education you will be working harder than any student.

    Tips for prospective students

    morehead has a great eating place that is a buffet. i eat here alot and the food is amazing. you have flex dollars you can use in the pod when you get those late night candy cravings!

    Campus Safety

    we're rated one of the safest campuses in the country. there's a police station right on campus. we have numerous officers patrolling the campus all day and night and a shuttle bus you can call at any time to drive you when it's late at night.

    Greek Life

    there are a lot of students involved with greek life here. you can't go a day without seeing at least one. they are all really friendly to everyone and actually put in a lot of community service hours to our community and communities around us.

    Clubs and Activities

    you can find a club for anything you like here. we have everything from the gaming guild to student government. if none of these interest you, you can make a club of your own very easily.

    Great for these types of students

    any student with a disability is treated with the utmost respect here. we have special dorms to accommodate everyone. music majors will love it here also. i find that a lot of students come here for the music program.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    we just included our own rotc training ground that is open to the public. there are nets to climb and it very safe and fun to do. we also have a lake right on our campus. it's a beautiful view and a great place to just relax with a book.

    Bang for the buck

    no matter what you think your 'clique' in high school was, you can join virtually any group here. those people you thought were strange to you in high school can end up being your best friends here. everyone is willing to be friendly.

    What to do for fun

    a lot of students find it fun to get into the greek life. fraternities and sororities on campus have different philanthropies to support children with disabilities, starvation, etc. we have a lot of mountains in this area also, so it's really fun to go mountain climbing with friends. it's easy to do and the view is breathtaking (and you don't even need equipment). there are also talent contests weekly and many theatrical shows and art shows.

    Food and Dining

    we have a wide variety of restaurants that are open until the early hours morning. it's two in the morning and you want chicken wings? we have a place just for that. we also have an on-campus grocery store for your own convenience.

    Dorm Life

    it gets better as you progress through school, but the freshmen dorms are still not quite up to date. they're fixing this over the summer though, so you will be coming in to a great campus in the fall.

    Academic Rigor

    it really depends on the major you decide on. your classes will challenge you to better yourself, rather than just pass it.

    Tips for prospective students

    don't be afraid to ask questions to other students. there is a lot of things to see off-campus that you can't find without help. also, try and keep calm when entering college, everyone here is incredibly nice.

    In three sentences

    it's an all-around great college. it's not too big for those of you that are afraid of the large crowds, but is just big enough to feel your freedom. the campus is beautiful also.

    Recreation and Wellness center is a HUGE gym and activity center with a huge swimming pool, basketball and racket ball courts, group fitness classes, running track, a ton of weight and exercise machines, and an outdoor ropes course. It is a lot of fun and free to all students.

    Bang for the buck

    Morehead is one of the cheapest schools in Kentucky but also has a lot of really great academic programs. Rated one of the top public schools in the south by US News and World Report.

    What to do for fun

    There are a lot of clubs, organizations, sororities and fraternities available. We have a nice lake and are surrounded by mountains if you like out door things. We have a movie theater and some nice restaurants to eat at. Unfortunately there isn't a lot of night life and the closest big towns are about an hour away.

    Food and Dining

    There are a lot of places to eat during the day and they have good quality. At night there is a dining hall that is pretty good but doesn't stay open late. There is a grill that stays open later, but it does not have many healthy choices.

    Dorm Life

    Some of the dorms are really nice, but some of them aren't. Fortunately, they are rebuilding most of the outdated dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    There are a lot of really great classes but most are challenging and will require you work for your grades.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you like the small town, friendly place Morehead is perfect for you. However if you like the city life with a lot of places to shop and go out to eat it might not be the best.

    In three sentences

    Morehead is a small but nice campus for anyone who doesn't like huge classes and over crowded buildings. Everyone is really nice and supportive and willing to help anyone who asks. There are plenty of organizations and clubs to join and a lot of fun to be had.

    What to do for fun

    There is plenty you can do for fun at Morehead, such as Cave Run Lake which is located just 11 miles from campus, as well as many different intramural sports and clubs all over campus. There is a great Greek Life system, as well as different organizations to join. A friendly atmosphere makes it easy to join a group and make friends, and can have more fun!

    Food and Dining

    MSU has two main areas to dine, the Adron Doran University Center (a.k.a. ADUC), and Alumni Tower. ADUC has many different choices on food, such as Taco Bell, Chik-Fil-a, Home Zone which has different meals everyday, and several other booths that sell sandwiches, Chinese food, and salads. You can choose from all these and use a meal off your Eagle Card with a simple swipe and meal plan. Alumni Tower also uses your Eagle Card, and has the buffet that has different meals everyday, and Wingspan which is a wing place, all in the basement. A small store for food and hygiene is located in Alumni as well.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm buildings are nice, most having undergone recent renovations, making them more up with modern times. The dorms are always clean inside in the lobbies, and student life inside is generally friendly. The Resident Advisor staff is great and outgoing with students, and can also be strict when needed. the size of the dorm rooms aren't too bad, it really just depends how you organize them.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics at Morehead are no joke, and students need to stay on top of their game. Some professors are helpful, and some aren't, so you really have to give it your best effort. The class sizes are generally not crowded and you can go to your professor for help if you need it. Blackboard is a system used at Morehead so you can be on top of your grades and schoolwork, and most professors use it to keep students updated on class. Students need a lot of time to study, but the professors are always willing to help and keep you ahead and understanding.

    Tips for prospective students

    For a student looking into Morehead, the best tip I could give is to be involved. campus life is fun if an effort to be involved with an organization is put in, and at Morehead there are plenty of different types of organizations you can be involved in. However, don't slack on your studies to do so, so make sure you balance social life, and schoolwork.

    In three sentences

    Morehead State University has a beautiful campus, located down in Eastern Kentucky's Rowan County, where you can see wonders as the leaves turning in the fall, and then the growth of the forest in the spring. The professors are great, and with smaller classroom sizes than many universities, you can really get the most out of your class from the professors lectures. The campus isn't huge, making it easy to navigate and not get lost, as well as great campus police who help maintain the campus' outstanding safety records.

    Campus Safety

    MSU has its own police department right on campus. For the past few years, MSU has been counted as one of the Top 10 safest schools in the United States and they make sure everyone knows it! MSU prides itself on its safety and security. Every few feet there is an emergency phone and they have shuttle buses that run way up into the night if you're on campus and need to go somewhere else on campus after dark.

    Greek Life

    where do I start? I'm not a Greek myself, but I have quite a few friends who are. From what I've been told, it's an amazing lifestyle and you make so many friends.

    Clubs and Activities

    They have everything from The Order (for Star Wars fans) to ALLYance and just about anything in between. There are many clubs for different majors and there is talk about starting up a Quidditch team.

    Great for these types of students

    There are many different kinds of students that attend MSU, from the fresh out of high school to your very non-traditional students. MSU is great for everyone and the students who go there, love it!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Eagle Lake is a huge lake that is in the back of campus. It has a few trails around it, the longest one being almost 2 miles. On a warm summer day, it's nice to just go sit and look at the lake or take a hike.

    Bang for the buck

    The campus is beautiful, but there's quite a few hills. The library is amazing! It's five floors and I think they have every book ever published (probably not, but it seems like it). The theater also usually puts on 2 productions per semester and as a student, you get to attend for free. Also as a student, you get to attend any home ballgames for free as well.

    What to do for fun

    As I stated above, there are many activities to get involved with on campus. Looking for a place of worship? there are a few of those on campus. Looking for a place to just hang out and chill? quite a few of those as well. Pretty much, anything that you want to do, there is a club or organization for it.

    Food and Dining

    The cost for a meal plan is pretty costly. The earliest that restaurants are open is 7:30 and the latest is 2am during the week. On the weekends, everything is closed by 10pm. There is a variety of restaurants that are located on campus, plus you can add money to your EagleCard and use it at some restaurants off campus as well.

    Dorm Life

    The residence halls are a little bland, but you can hang up pictures and decorate any way you wish. The RA's plan activities at least once a month and then there is usually one activity a month that is planned by all the RA's in that building and it's building wide.

    Academic Rigor

    The science department is really hard. MSU takes great pride in that fact. The other departments don't seem quite so bad.

    Tips for prospective students

    Move onto campus! Don't walk around acting like you know everything, someone will show you otherwise very quickly Get involved! There are many different activities to get involved with and many opportunities to meet new people

    In three sentences

    I love it here! All the faculty and students are welcoming and willing to help you in any way that they can. Tuition is a little steep though if you don't have much money.

    Campus Safety

    Morehead State is known for their low crime statistics. They are one of the safest schools in the nation.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is over 100 student clubs and organizations who do all sorts of things on campus that others can attend.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have a Kentucky Folk Art Center right across the street from campus.

    Bang for the buck

    Morehead State is a reasonably priced college. I definitely feel that I am getting my money's worth.

    What to do for fun

    I personally am not a drinker, but I do know that there is only like 1 bar/club in Morehead but it is within walking distance from the campus. There are parties at many of the Frat houses. The university does, however, try their best to have free and fun events for students to attend. There are a bunch of little things in town to do.

    Food and Dining

    At the right time, there are many places to choose a meal from. However, if you don't make it in within that short time span, your choices are cut down to about 2 or 3 places to choose from.

    Dorm Life

    Many of the dorm buildings need to be redone because they are very old. However, everything works fine, and if you have a problem someone will be there to fix it.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the the classes are super intense while others are quite doable.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you plan on coming to Morehead make sure to bring your rain-boots!

    In three sentences

    Coming from a small town, I love Morehead because it has the small town feel. If you like the city though, it is only an hour away from Lexington. So you can always take a trip to the mall!

    Campus Safety

    We are probably the safest campus that I know of. There's always campus police circling around the campus and making sure everyone is doing what they are suppose to be!

    Greek Life

    People base Greek Life with Partying, but that's not always the case. You choose to party or not. And if you don't want to there's no peer pressure or judgement. But I heard the Greek Life is awesome and fun!

    Clubs and Activities

    I'm not in a club, but I have always wanted to join a Sorority. They have tons of fraternities, sororities and tons of athletic games!

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for students who want to become successful and make not only their family proud but themselves. People who enjoy studying and learning. Great for serious students.

    Nothing, everyone has their own traditions and there respected. We hold a great amount of student diversity!

    Bang for the buck

    As long as you try, you will succeed. I can barely afford it but most people can. After the long run it's worth it.

    What to do for fun

    I'm not the type to go out much, but I like to go to the volleyball games the most, get pumped up and cheer for my team. Sometimes I go to the movies, we have a great theater, or out to eat, there's walmart, etc.

    Food and Dining

    The food is great! I love the different varieties the campus has. They have 10 Restaurants and 3 Coffee shops including Starbucks and Java City, And there all delicious and you should try them all. We also have a small convenient store which is useful if you don't have a vehicle.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms feel like home to me, some people can't cope with being away from home but living in a dorm is a great experience for when you get older and have to live alone. They have Wi-fi and most are renovated or about to be.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic departments here are great! Also if you try hard and study you can do just about anything. If you don't understand the material, then you can get a free tutor.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be nervous, get out there and just do it. If you are worried about making friends, don't be. Everyone here are loving and get along to help each other walk down the graduation isle and get their diplomas. I recommend Morehead State University, they have great programs as well! Take advantage of whats in front of you and you will open doors. Also if you are having trouble with academics, there's tutors that are available for free!

    The housing at Morehead state is great. The work-study programs are really nice to have for extra money. The Professors are so loving and they help out any way they can!

    Campus Safety

    I campus is extremely safe. I never feel uncomfortable walking on campus at night. Even if you are scared to walk alone, the Campus Police can pick you up and drop you off at your dorm.

    There are tons of Sororities and Fraternities on campus. There is one for you!

    On campus there is a Music Hall that is open 24/7. It is neat to go there at night when there is nothing to do and go play on the piano. It is really neat place to see.

    Bang for the buck

    Morehead has everything you need and so much more!

    What to do for fun

    There is always something going on at Morehead. We have an amazing Volleyball team and a decent Basketball team. We also have a bowling alley on campus and a new recreation center that has a pool inside of it. there is also the Space center that has lazer shows.

    Food and Dining

    Food and dining on campus isn't gourmet cooking and isn't your grandma's cooking. I can say I have had better food in my life, but at the same time it is not the worse. There is a lot of variety, especially at ADUC. There is Chick-fil-a, Chinese, Toco Bell, salads, sandwiches, pizza, pasta and hamburger and fried food. Then at Beakers it is a buffet style that always has sandwiches, pizza and salads.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life can only be explained as dorm life. It is an experience in itself. Everyone experiences it differently. It is really convenient living in dorms at MSU since it is right on campus and so close to classes. Dorm life is so much better when you get to know your roommate, you end up becoming best friends with him or her.

    Academic Rigor

    I love the professors here at MSU. They actually care about there students. Don't get me wrong there are some professors that don't care, just like any college. But for the most part, most professors will sit with you and help you when you need the extra help.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Try and buy used books, and try looking at Amazon or Half.com to get your books at the cheapest price. 2. Become evolved at MSU. There are so many different clubs and organizations. 3. STUDY STUDY STUDY! Try not to fall behind. 4. Use the tutoring labs provided through the school if you are having any difficulties in any of your classes. Don't forget it is FREE! 5. Make new friends. Friends you make in college can stay with you for the rest of your life. 6. Don't forget to enjoy your college experience at MSU!

    In three sentences

    Morehead State University is a smaller school but has so much to offer. You are not over whelmed with large class sizes or over population on campus. It is the perfect size school and reasonable tuition.

    It's one of the safest campus in the U.S. I feel comfortable here.

    Clubs and Activities

    More than 100 clubs and there are always something to do everyweek.

    What to do for fun

    It's a small town but it's a study place I would say. A lot of things to do with nature: rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, lake, fishing and so on. There are a movie theaters, some good Italian, Mexican, Chinese and Japanese restaurants and a nice coffee shop and book store.

    Food and Dining

    There are two dining place. One has restaurants like Taco Bells, Chick-fi-la, Asian Express and so one; the other one has buffet and Wing Span, which is kind of Buffalo Wild Wings. There are foods that you will like.

    Dorm Life

    There are different options for you to choose from. My dorm is for international student and I can stay all year long. College dorms are of course loud but you can learn to adapt and be sociable.

    Academic Rigor

    It depends on what major you want to be in, I think there are always the professors who match your study styles and who do not. However, college is what you make of it, try to utilize the help of professors as much as possible. The school is very good in biology, chemistry (premed and pre-vet), music, and space science.

    Tips for prospective students

    Everything is very simple and straightforward here. I came as an international student and I did not have any trouble adapting to the environment. I would suggest be prepared for classes and talk to the professors as much as you can to create a good relationship is very useful in the future.

    In three sentences

    It is a small university that is big enough so you can meet new people every day and small enough that the professors know and care about you. The professors and officials are very helpful in supporting students' education. I think it is a good school to pursue your higher education.

    MSU has a shuttle bus running 24/7 so if you are out on campus after dark, you can call for it come get you. There are also emergency phones every so often on campus. Have a campus police station that patrols 24/7 and about 3 minutes away from the city police station.

    Cave Run Lake is nearby - good for summer. Lake on campus with a lot of hiking trails. Amazing rec center - pick-ups games played on the lawn a lot. Lots of organizations to join or university-hosted events to attend.

    Suites here are awesome! Personal bath/toilet. Sinks. A large living room and a large bedroom. Lots of storage space.

    Cave Run Lake is close. That is a nice place to go hiking and enjoy nature.

    Bang for the buck

    I think that Morehead is kind of a money hog. They seem to squeeze your for every penny they can get. They make you get ridiculous meal plans and dorms for 2 years and you don't have any choice. Everything on campus is extremely inflated in price as well.

    What to do for fun

    Thereis not a whole lot to do in Morehead unless you want to drive a little bit. There is bowling and a movie theatre in town then hiking and fishing about 15 minutes away.

    Food and Dining

    The food itself and selection is not too bad, but the times are awful. There are only 3 places open after 3:00pm, Tocobell, Chick-fil-a, and the buffet. After 5, only the buffet is open, then after 8 only a wing place is open. On the weekends the only places open all day are the buffet and the wing place (which isn't open til 6).

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are okay if you get a newly renevated one, but they cost way too much. Because you don't have any other choices your first year, it costs way too much.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes have good quality, but it is hard to take some courses that you want to take.

    Tips for prospective students

    Register as early as you can. Classes fill up fast. Apply for scholarships. Even though its not an extemely espensive school, it is a lot for a small school, especially if you are not from Kentucky.

    In three sentences

    Morehead is an overall good school. They have good programs and classes. I do not like their selection of courses from semester to semeser, and it is hard to register for classes you want to take that are not required for your major.

    The Greek life here is top notch. Most of the fraternities and sororities are very active within the college and the community. I joined Sigma Alpha Epsilon and it has kept me quite occupied and satisfied while doing community service and participating in intramural sports.

    Clubs and Activities

    When I came to Morehead State University I decided to check out the Greek life. I joined Sigma Alpha Epsilon in the fall semester of 2012 and I'm very satisfied. It allowed me to meet many new people and keep me occupied with things to do in this small town.

    Great for these types of students

    Morehead State University is great for students that are looking for more of an inexpensive, smaller school. MSU is also for students that like to have one-on-one interactions with their teachers.

    Bang for the buck

    For the cost of tuition, I feel that I'm receiving a top notch education. I feel that I've learned more in one course here than I did all through high school. The dorms could be a bit nicer for the money, but overall Morehead State University is very much worth it.

    What to do for fun

    Morehead State University has a recreation complex that has an olympic size pool, basketball courts, weight room, racquetball courts, and more. There are also hiking trails and a large lake. There are also parks in Morehead and Cave Run Lake is just right down the road.

    Food and Dining

    There are many options on campus, such as Taco Bell, Chick-Fil-A, and more. One issue is that there aren't really any healthy options. Also, lines around lunch time are quite long.

    Dorm Life

    I currently live in Cooper Hall, a two-person freshmen dorm. I am not satisfied with it, it's small, smells and the neighbors are very disruptive. I have seen other dorms on campus, such as Alumni Tower, and they are much nicer.

    Academic Rigor

    I am a pre-medicine major here at Morehead State University. The courses are quite difficult and require studying but can all be conquered. The professors are all very intelligent and make their courses difficult but are more than willing to help with anything a student may need.

    Tips for prospective students

    A major tip is to look into Greek life. Morehead is not a big town and does not have much to do, therefore it can get boring. Lexington is right down the road, but to stay occupied in Morehead I suggest checking out Greek life.

    If you're from Kentucky, and that's all you know, you will consider it a top university in these parts. If you have ever been to other universities outside of the state you will most likely be very unimpressed and occasionally frustrated with their lack of ability to seem in the 21st century. Also, their financial aid department is equally as frustrating.

    Again, take advantage of the outdoor adventure program. This fall I went whitewater rafting (which I never would have done on my own). In the Spring, there was a trip hiking the Appalachian Trail. Next week, canoeing. It's a great way to meet new people who you may have never met on campus. Totally worth it!

    Morehead State University's campus s very safe. It has its own police station and there phones all around campus that call the campus police if you feel unsafe. Also if you go somewhere and come back at dark you can call the campus police and they will give you a ride to your dorm.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is usually a club for your major that you can join. It's really nice because then you can meet people who have the same interests as you and make new friends.

    Food and Dining

    The food is awesome! The building called ADUC has plenty of options and is most people's choice for lunch. They have Taco Bell, Chick Fila, chinese food, a salad place, a burger place, and more! For dinner there is a buffet and a wing place. There is also a little grocery type store on campus.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm rooms are pretty nice. There is the option to either live in a two-person room or 4-person room. The RAs are very helpful and are there for you if you have any problems. Some of the dorms have wireless internet and for others you will need an Ethernet cord.

    Academic Rigor

    Of course, some classes are more challenging than others, but if you study hard you can do great. There are tutors available for free that can help with your studies.

    Don't come to college to party. You go to college to get an education and partying will affect it. Make sure to study hard, but still take breaks and have some fun.

    Campus Safety

    Morehead is very prominent when it comes to safety. I believe it was rated the top safest campus in Kentucky, and made the top ten safest campus in the US.

    Clubs and Activities

    Morehead is filled with many types of clubs, organizations, sports, and greek life.

    Bang for the buck

    I definitely think it was worth it. You definitely get what you pay for.

    What to do for fun

    Morehead State is located in a very small town. We have one movie theater, and that's pretty much it. That doesn't mean you can't have fun though. We have Cave Run lake which stays pretty busy when it's hot, and we also have laser shows every week.

    Food and Dining

    The food here is, well, so-so. As far as the food court goes, the food is great! The cafeteria, however, has some good days, as well as some bad days. I will say that they usually always have a variety though, and the food is fairly fresh.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life isn't as bad as I thought it would be. The RA's are very attentive and nice, as well as helpful. The dorms are fairly big, and it's usually neat and tidy - very well kept.

    Academic Rigor

    I feel as though I am constantly challenged, and I tend to learn something new every day.

    Tips for prospective students

    If interested in Morehead State, make sure to apply early. For the past year or so, we've been accepting more and more students each year, sometimes even over the capacity limit (I should know, I work in Enrollment). Make sure to utilize the library - it will be your best friend in passing your classes.

    In three sentences

    Morehead State is probably one of the best choices I could have made. The teachers understand what they are teaching, and the students here are extremely nice and helpful. The tuition is fairly low, and the campus is absolutely beautiful.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors really care about whether or not you pass. The classes are challenging but the professors offer their help in any way possible.

    Tips for prospective students

This semester I have worked diligently to accommodate for last semester's negligence. Always do your homework and classwork and take good notes.

    In three sentences

    Morehead State University is a very good school. I have gone there for almost two semesters now, and it has left a remarkable impression on me. I would recommend this school to anyone who is interested in furthering their education.

    Campus Safety

    MSU is a very safe campus. We have our own police department that is dedicated to the safety of students. If you feel uncomfortable walking in the dark you can call the police station and they will send the student shuttle to escort you to your destination. The police department offers programs that teach self defence and have a sexual assualt response team to protect its students. Of my time here I have never heard of any crime being committed on campus.

    Greek Life

    Morehead State University's Greek Lide is great. There are numerous sororities or fraternities for one to choose from. All of the Greeks get along very well and are very active on campus and with charities.

    Clubs and Activities

    MSU has a variety of clubs that include academic clubs such as history or chemistry as well as your less common such as The Order which allows students to harness the force and show off their light saber skills.

    Morehead State is great for all students. Our athletics programs have been very successful in recent years, the music department is one of the best in the nation and the poeple on campus are very accepting and welcome all people to jump in and join.

    An unusual tradition on campus is the Nearly Naked Mile where students run around campus in the undies to support less fortunate families. To enter the race you must donate a coat that will be donated to families in need.

    Bang for the buck

    Morehead State University has changed my life. During my time here I have made life-long friendships and have earned the respect of professors. MSU has helped me grow as an individual and as a scholar. I don't know where I would be if I had chosen to attend another university but I doubt that I would be the same person that I am today.

    What to do for fun

    Morehead, Kentucky has a variety of fun things to do. Going to the movies or going shopping are only a few things you can do off campus. If you want to stay on campus however you can attend all sporting events free with your student I.D. or go to a forum hosted by professors. MSU offers activities for all.

    Food and Dining

    MSU offers a variety of options for students to satisfy their hunger. You can eat at Taco Bell or Chick-Fil-A or satisfy a craving for home cooked meals at Home Zone in the student center or go to the Alumni Tower and eat all you can at the buffet or grab a burger or chicken wings at Wing Span.

    Dorm Life

    MSU renovates their residence halls on a ten year cycle to ensure that each facility is properly maintained. You can choose from a two-person room, a four-person suite as well as apartments. Whereever you choose to live you will make new friends as well as strengthen your bong with old ones.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors at MSU are very knowledgeable in their fields and they expect the best from their students. If you attend class regularly, pay attention and study you will be fine but if you do need a little extra help the professors as well as student tutors are always willing to offer a helping hand.

    I feel like this is one of the safest campuses in the state of Kentucky! There are constantly patrolling officers who really do their job. Just remember they are only looking out for you.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is a big deal here. There a large array of social and academic Greeks that you have your choice.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many clubs and activities for about anyone. There's so many I don't even know them all.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for highly-motivated kids who came from all sizes of high schools. If you are a music, education, or Ag major i recommend this school over all others.

    Bang for the buck

    I think coming here was worth every penny. I really feel like my money is going toward a school that is really making it worth it.

    What to do for fun

    There are so many student organizations on campus that it is almost impossible not to be a part of one. I am personally a part of the MSU marching band, which is really my idea of fun, but, if you want to go out and just have fun there's Mt Sterling 30 min away and Ashland which is about an hour which are full of random things to do. Or if you wanna stay on campus, if you check with your RA's they always have cool stuff planned.

    Food and Dining

    ADUC which is only open from around 8- 4:30 is the best place you will eat on this campus. It has a bunch of fast food restaurants and is absolutely fantastic though it can get a little crowded. RFOC which is located in Alumni Tower is okay. This is where most go to eat dinner, it's not the best but, it's still pretty awesome compared to eating Ramen all the time.

    Dorm Life

    Personally I don't enjoy living with 4 other people because I enjoy my alone time but, the dorms on campus are all extremely nice. Since they are in the process of renovating them all, they're only going to get better. I only have one suggestion, always think twice about living with your best friend.

    Academic Rigor

    Teachers are really about pushing their students toward success and making them the best of the best. Though at the time you won't appreciate it, they know what they are doing.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get out. Never sit in your dorm like a hermit. The students at MSU are all very friendly and polite. Never be afraid to try new things, the worst that can happen is that you might actually like it. Always go to class, with such small classes teachers know when you're not there. And, last but not least, always do your best.

    In three sentences

    MSU is a beautiful campus with many opportunities for everyone. Morehead is a smaller sized school which makes it easier to communicate with the teachers whom are mostly all willing to help any chance they get. Though it is in a small town you are never going to be bored.

    Campus Safety

    There is a police station based on campus. They are always on call and cars patrol the campus 24/7. Call stations are located across the campus that you can use to request a car to chaperon you, or if you just feel unsafe.

    Great for these types of students

    If you're rather shy or secluded this campus is perfect for you. There are plenty of places to be alone and the campus is small enough that you don't have to struggle with getting around. For those of you that are more social, it's still a great place! Because it is a smaller campus you may find yourself knowing nearly everyone in the first month of attendance.

    What to do for fun

    There are hiking trails, a bowling alley, theater, campus events and shows, music festivals nearly weekly, sports games and plenty of restaurants/shops in the area.

    Tips for prospective students

    Speak with your adviser and financial aid counselor as often as you possibly can. Maintaining good grades and a low bill while you attend is mandatory in your success. Be aware of ALL possible scholarship and extra curricular opportunities. Be willing to try new things but don't make yourself uncomfortable.

    Every spring the President of the University hosts a lawn concert free to the public. The lawn concert involves different performing groups of the music program such as the Morehead State Percussion Ensemble or the Jazz ensemble. Food is provided during the concert for free.

    What to do for fun

    There are plenty of things to do for fun on campus that do not cost anything you just have to look. Every once and a while the planetarium host's a light laser light show and all of the shows have been spectacular. There is also a lake located on campus with plenty of trails to walk or ride bikes on.

    Food and Dining

    The food is not horrible but it does get tiring after awhile. The school does offer meal plans in which you can choose how many times that you want to eat on campus. I personally recommend choosing a smaller meal plan versus the larger meal plans.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is not terrible but not great. Construction has been done on several of the campus buildings and as of what I have seen they are quite nice. The only downside to the newly constructed buildings is that you may have to share a dorm room with three other people instead of just one other person.

    Academic Rigor

    Most classes are not difficult. Just expect to be expected to show up to class and complete all assignments that are given.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not be afraid to ask questions. The more that you know before attending school, the better off you will be. This advice goes towards any school that you can apply for.

    What to do for fun

    The campus is located right by Eagle lake where there are hiking trails, and you can even fish in the lake. Campus is also not far from Lockegee which has a beautiful view of the hills of Kentucky. Cave run lake is also within driving distance from campus. On campus you can visit the newly built Recreation and Wellness center where you can workout, shoot some hoops, and even ride the zip line into the pool.

    Food and Dining

    My favorite place to eat is ADUC. ADUC is located on the acedemic side of campus, making it an easy place to get lunch at. The cafeteria has Taco Bell and Chic-fil-a, as well as other places that are delicious. Most people don't know that there are two sides to the cafeteria. So on days where there is a long line on one side, there is hardly anyone on the other side. There is even a Starbucks in ADUC for that quick pick me up before your 8am class.

    Dorm Life

    Most of the dorms are located close together making visiting friends easy. The school does a great job matching people that don't go in with a roommate.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes can be challenging, but the professors are always willing to help.

    Tips for prospective students

    I recommend that prospective students tour the campus and the facilities. They should also check out the quantity of clubs that are available to them to get them involved on campus.

    Morehead State University is small institution, but that makes for small class sizes. Morehead offers hands on experiences that you won't find at many other colleges. The school even has a farm where Agriculture students can work hands on with animals.

    Not a lot of violent crimes on campus though there are some petty thefts and the occasional idiot that pulls the fire alarm at three in the morning. you can check out all the latest on the university police website, the crimes are pretty pathetic.

    Bang for the buck

    I feel like my money was well spent.

    What to do for fun

    There is things to do on and around campus. Events are held on campus all the time, from gallery viewings and movie showings to almost naked miles and laser light shows. nearby are a bookstore/coffee shop, a cineplex, an art gallery, a couple of parks and more.

    Food and Dining

    The campus has a variety of places you can eat and all of them are good. if you don't want to eat fast food everyday there is a buffet that serves home cooked food and you can go to P.O.D. the on campus grocery store. Things there are a little pricey but you get money for it with your meal plan.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are pretty good. A good roommate can make or break it. All of the systems (heating and cooling) are on one circuit so in the winter the heating is turned on. you can't turn it down. It gets to be suffocating. Bring a fan and make sure your window works (yes we had the window open when it was snowing buckets).

    Academic Rigor

    It is challenging but is not overwhelming.

    Tips for prospective students

    Explore the campus so you know where all the buildings are. Always go a little early just in case (this is just a general rule of mine and doesn't really reflect on MSU). The walk to anywhere on campus shouldn't take more than ten or fifteen minutes (usually a lot less, that's the max.). You HAVE to have an umbrella. It rains a lot. Check your e-mail!!!! Important information for class and for campus is always on there, it is REALLY important.

    Having their own pond is pretty cool.

    Bang for the buck

    The 22 million dollar rec center really put Morehead on top of the list and the beautiful environment really is a plus too!

    What to do for fun

    Morehead has a beautiful pond right on campus and Cave Run lake right down the road so fishing, canoeing, and kayaking are on the do do list. They also have a awesome rec center with swimming pools, basketball courts, and workout gear. If you are not into any of that they have a movie theater and plenty of food and shopping places.

    Taco bell and Chick-fil-A are right on campus and very delicious!

    Visit the campus!

    Campus Safety

    You never have to feel in danger around Morehead State. We have our own personal police department right on campus, and another police department is less than a mile away from campus. The officers are there to protect and serve, and they couldn't be more happy to do so.

    Clubs and Activities

    Morehead offers plenty of clubs and activities (though I can't say that I'm part of any yet). I do know that they offer a lot of exercise clubs, and Greek life is very big on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    I'd say that Morehead is great for any type of student. Whether it be the social butterfly looking to make great friends and have a great time, or the quieter, more self reserved student who can appreciate some peace and quiet. Morehead offers it all.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Every year to welcome the incoming Freshmen, Morehead State holds an annual ice cream social. It's a fun little gathering that helps relieve the stress of coming to a new and unusual place.

    Bang for the buck

    You get so much for the amount you pay to go to Morehead. Personally, I think that Morehead State is the greatest deal in the entire United States. With your general cost per year averaging $18,000, you get so much. Faculty is amazing, the recreational room is superb. The dorms are clean, and very roomy, and the campus is beautiful. Morehead State is most definitely the best school you could possibly go to if you want to get the biggest bang for your buck.

    What to do for fun

    In my free time, I like to head down to Morehead's amazing recreational room, which is filled with state of the art exercise equipment, a full sized track, a standard sized swimming pool, and multiple basketball courts, where you can normally find at least a dozen students in each court playing a pick-up game. If that's not your thing, the wifi in the rooms are great, so if you just want to surf the web or whatever, that's always an option. It's also just very relaxing to ride your bike, or just wailk the campus (if you don't mind hills that is!)

    Food and Dining

    I'm gonna have to say that Morehead State goes above and beyond any of the other colleges that I've looked at as far as cuisine goes. Assuming which meal plans you buy, you're offered a huge selection of food choices, which not only includes the cafeteria (whose food is always fresh and hand made), but also a variety of famous restaurants, including taco bell, chic fillet, crouton's and more. I never go hungry when I'm on campus, that's for sure.

    Dorm Life

    I can only speak from my own point of view, but my dorm life has been great. My roommates have been nothing but fair, and they're all pretty cool dudes. The room isn't too small, even if we have one more guy than we're supposed to. We have our own bathroom and shower, and the wifi works almost all the time, which allows for me to do my work without a problem most of the time.

    Academic Rigor

    The work isn't anything to shake a stick at. When your teachers told you that high school was going to be nothing like college, they weren't lying. However, if you just time manage, do your work when you're supposed to, and just study regularly, you'll do just fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early, and shoot for those scholarships now. It's never too early to get a heads up in the college game. Also, it's very easy to fall behind in your work without even realizing it. Stay on top of what you're doing though, manage your time, and you'll be fine.

    In three sentences

    Morehead provides an atmosphere that makes you feel at home. You truly feel like you are part of your own little community. If you're like me, from the big city and felt like you never belonged, then this might be the place for you.

    Campus Safety

    Morehead State University is ranked one of the safest schools in the USA. There are Emergency telephone areas located all around campus. There is a police department, located on-campus, specifically designed to attend to any emergencies or problems on campus. I have first-highhandedly seen the work of the Morehead State Police Department and it is awe inspiring.

    Greek Life

    I am not personally involved in Greek life, but I have many friends and coworkers that are apart of either a sorority or fraternity. Some of my best friends are apart of Greek life. From watching their experiences, it is definitely something to think about. The people who are involved in Greek life are very involved on campus and are very welcoming to new and current students.

    Clubs and Activities

    Along with the countless number of fraternities and sororities, there are so many more clubs and activities at MSU. Morehead, in my opinion, has one of the best intramural leagues. There are so many sports to choose from and the staff is wonderful to get to know and work with.

    Great for these types of students

    Because Morehead is such a small campus, the classes are small. If you want your teacher to smile at you on the sidewalk and actually know your name then this is the place for you.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    On campus there isn't many unusual places, but off campus there is so much more to explore. There is a huge rock that almost every student has climbed called Lockegee. Lockegee is located about 15 minutes from campus and has beautiful sightseeing.

    Bang for the buck

    Being a Resident Adviser and upgrading and being chosen, out of many candidates, to become a Student Director has been a wonderful experience to me. I get to work behind scenes in order to make Housing for the students better. I am allowed the privilege to make a difference in a student's housing experience. Being able to work with people around my age has allowed me to have so many new experiences and opportunities. Morehead State University gives many opportunities to get involved both academically and sociably.

    What to do for fun

    Although Morehead is a small city, there are many exciting adventures to be had. There is a big rock called Lockegee that a lot of students enjoy going to, to climb. Many students also go to Cave Run where there is a lake and a place to camp. Around Eagle Lake, an apartment building on campus, there is a lake and a wonderful hiking trail.

    Food and Dining

    There are two central locations for food and dining; Alumni and ADUC. ADUC is typically open for lunch hours while Alumni is open during dinner hours. Both building have a wide variety of foods to eat. If you are wanting junk food or healthy food, you will find option for both. There is also an on-campus store called POD that is available to go to throughout the day.

    Dorm Life

    Because I am a Student Director for my University I am allowed to receive a free, apartment in one on the on-campus apartment buildings. My freshman year I lived in a suite with three other roommates, and my sophomore year I lived in a two-person room, with one roommate.

    Academic Rigor

    I am currently taking 18 hours this semester, but my typical semester credit hours is 15. I am both an English and Legal Studies Major. I have a lot of assignments with having a double major, but I am still able to flourish in my academics.

    Tips for prospective students

    For all prospective students, remember to stay involved. Being involved means not going home every weekend, becoming immersed in social events, and being open to new experiences.

    In three sentences

    Morehead State University is a small but very homely campus. All of the staff and professors are here to assist students and further education. I am a person who never thought they would enjoy a campus such as Morehead's, but now that I attend MSU I cannot imagine a better place to study and further my education.

    What to do for fun

    There isn't a lot to do in the town of Morehead so if you want to have fun, make some friends to hang out with, go to sports games, or join a club or activity.

    Food and Dining

    Meal plans are the way to go on this campus. ADUC has a lot of choices, good and healthy and some fast food places if you want that. Beakers and Wingspan in Alumni Tower aren't the best quality but the food is better than some things you could eat.

    Dorm Life

    Some dorms are better than other but that is normal on older campuses. MOst of them have great commodities and its really easy to make friends within the dorm. Also the RAs on campus are always there to help you.

    Academic Rigor

    Professors are really helpful and will always make time for you. They will try and learn your name and get to know you. Most of them do the best to get you ready for your future career and try to make everything easy to understand.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips would be always go to class and do your work, if you don't you;ll fall behind and will probably take the class over again. If you have any problems with anything go to a professor and get tutoring, which is free here.

    In three sentences

    Morehead is a small, quite college with a lot of things going for it. The teachers here are very helpful and help you the best you can. There are a lot of club and activities to do on campus and its really easy to meet new people because of the small town feel.

    Dorm Life

    If you want to stay on campus I would recommend staying in one of the 4-person dorms, they are bigger and the neighbors are all nice. If you want to stay in a 2-person dorm, you will be able to make friends easier and be able to meet those around you a little easier.

    Academic Rigor

    Morehead is known for their advanced classes, make sure you study all your notes well, and be prepared for any type of exam.

    Tips for prospective students

Make sure you stay active, don't become a recluse if you stay on campus go outside and meet someone new.
