    I love this college! great environment and student involvement. The professors here care about their students and see student success as their own. The classes are small and interpersonal, very well structured and set students up to succeed academically and personally. The non teaching faculty are always available to help and very pleasant to deal with. You are not just your tuition like i felt at a much larger college in South Carolina. I am always made to feel like a priority and i wouldn't go anywhere else.

    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!
    It's very student friendly and the student to faculty ratio is a perfect 13:1. The school is made up of 1,300 enrolled, making life at McMurry very very personal. It's easy to make friends and to gain enough courage to talk to professors. Everyone at McMurry knows each other because of the small class and I enjoy being able to have good discussions in class. Life at McMurry is very comfortable and the relationships that can be built at the school are everlasting. The campus is very lively and there are various kinds of clubs that students can be a part of.
