i live 5.5-7 hours from murray, depending on the route. homesickness is really hard for me. but involving myself in things like the equestrian program, intramural sports and dorm activities has really helped me adjust. i truly love murray state, but because i am from a large city the town of murray is just too small for me.

Murray State is an amazing place to learn and grow not only as a student, but as a person. The environment is extremely tolerant, friendly, and extremely helpful for students in any available major. College isn't easy, but Murray State's faculty and staff, along with the older students, are willing to help make it as easy as it possibly can be!
