What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
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!
Shianne from Elizabethtown, KY
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.
Shannon from Grayson, KY
A great institution with amazing professors who really do care about you, and your education. The campus and town are beautiful, being in the Daniel Boone National Forest.
Abbey from London, KY
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.
