Coming from a big city, McMurry was the perfect college town for me! I wanted to get away from all the partying, noise, and stress. I loved that I knew literally everyone on campus and glad that we became one big family. Everything is in walking distance from classes, gym, track, dining hall, dorms, and even shopping. The professors truly care about the future of the students and keep in contact even after graduation. I'm glad I chose McMurry!

My experience at McMurry is fantastic, it's a very nice school by having teachers who can help you personally as well as the people at the school. Everyone there is very friendly and gives you a good vibe, everyone is helpful and will make your bad if you have a bad one. The changes that I think should be made is makin it a little bigger adding better food places there and if it wasn't a D3 school because there are a lot of great and talented athletes there and everyone needs the extra athletic scholarship money to help pay off school.
I love the classroom environment and the relationships students form with professors and other students due to the small university size. If you are struggling in a class, you will NEVER be in a situation where you cannot get help/tutoring conveniently and free of charge. My only complaint is that I come from a 6A high school in a large city, so the small college town life just isn't for me.
