Morehead State University Reviews
Morehead is not a party school and it is relatively far from a major city, so it has a laid-back atmosphere; most students go home on the weekends. The student body is friendly to each other and welcoming to new students. The professors are caring and more than willing to help you succeed, particularly if the student is willing to put in the effort. Budget cuts, constant renovations, and administrative disconnect frequently inhibit student productivity. The some of the main complaints among students would be the quality (and price) of campus dining and endless issues involved with on-campus housing. Overall, it is a comparatively affordable option for students on a safe campus.
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!
While visiting Morehead State University, I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. Being in a town that felt like home made me love it there. Their dorms were very nice and new, as well as their cafeteria. Morehead is one of my top picks right now because of it's location, amenities such as the wellness center, the lake, and the library, and also the academic programs they provide there.
