Murray State has a really positive environment full of friendly people. There are always many things to do, and all different kinds of opportunities. All students are proud to be Racers!

The environment seems so nice and welcoming. All of the staff that I have had to work with was very friendly and helpful. The campus may be big but it is easy to find where you need to go and is a very pretty, welcoming atmosphere.
