I love McMurry though it was my first semester and a little expensive I think it's worth every penny! The professors actually work hard to see their students pass and succeed it's not all about a check. Student life is great they want to see you involved and everyone is friendly.
Review Your College
I am specifically in Alpha Psi Alpha, and it is amazing. I would of never thought i'd be in one but ever since i've joined i never felt so happy and thankful i met wonderful sisters! The greek life at McMurry is very important boys and girls. We do not have Greek houses but some of the members in clubs will get a house and have their members live with them.
The residence halls do not have a curfew, but they do have quiet hours from 10pm to 10am that are enforced to provide an atmosphere where students can sleep and study without excessive noise. Laundry is easily accessible in Hunt and Martin Halls, and is a little more of a hassle for the other residence halls and the on campus apartments. The residence halls are a great place to find community. Often walking down the hall, many rooms are open to socialize with others going through. The housing process is not difficult to understand, but can be challenging if you need to move off campus unexpectedly.
