What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
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!
Christina from Louisville, KY
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.
