From McMurry University

At McMurry University, you'll find small classes, caring professors, and a diverse and active student body. With 1,100 students and an 11:1 student to faculty ratio, calling ourselves a community isn’t just something we say here, it’s something we make real!

Each year, our students compete in 21 intercollegiate sports (with 42 conference championships in the last 25 years, go War Hawks!), lead over 40 clubs and organizations, and engage with our community in more than 24,000 service hours.

As a Christian university with half of our students identifying as a minority ethnicity, we understand that real community is best lived when we are welcoming to students of all beliefs, backgrounds, genders, and interests. Our strong financial aid is designed to make your college education affordable and tailored to fit your needs.
