If I could put it into one sentence, it would be, 2 years wasted here. I went to Morehead to finish up my Bachelors. I went because family and friends went here, they always said it was the best school for me. Just the two years there made me felt like I was lied too. Frist, I didn't really learn anything in my field to help me when I graduated. Second, they only care about getting their name out there. Third, student body is not very diverse, such as they only care about athletes, students in on-campus organizations(student clubs and greek life), if you are not any of these you mostly treated like dirt. Sadly, I have to go back to school to redo the damage this place did for my future. Thanks!
Morehead State University is the perfect fit if you are seeking a 4 year educational hands on experience in the classroom. The staff is extremely welcoming and willing to see a student excel and succeed in their education and reach their full potential. Being from South Florida was definitely a transition to adapt, however, it has been rewarding to meet new people and build relationships students and people who share the same dreams, goals, and desires. As a student athlete it has been a good experience, you are recognized and valued for your achievements and your academics. If there was one thing I could change about Morehead State University is being closer to South Florida, however, the weather has not been that bad.
Morehead State University is located in a safe, and welcoming city known as Morehead, KY. The campus is beautiful, and there are a lot of friendly people. Morehead State University has an outstanding Psychology department. I dislike how the University makes the $100 per semester meal plans mandatory for off campus students, and would like to see that change. I also dislike how much renovation and construction that occurs on campus throughout the semesters. I would like the University to limit the amount of construction/renovation on campus during the semesters, and plan for the majority of it to take place in the Summer when there aren't as many students on campus.
