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!

The teachers are great! They will do whatever it takes to get you the help you need. The people are nice, as well as the staff there. McMurry is a small university, but you get treated like family there. At the school there is free tutoring from teachers and students. The students go to most of the sporting events and cheers them on.
McMurry University has changed me in ways I would never think of. Being here has brought me out of my comfort zone thanks to the activities I have done, the people I have met and even the courses I have taken. The best thing about McMurry is the people, the people here make you feel as though you are part of a family and that you are you are apart of something bigger than yourself. Not only in school but in life and I believe that if they continue to do this nothing but good things are to come for this institution.
