Morehead State University Reviews
I liked the community especially the people. It is a well rounded school and they are very friendly. They make you feel like home. There may not be a lot of diversity, but the professors and food is spectacular and the sports are great too! I definitely recommend this college to someone that wants to get away from your home town to a different town that is very nature friendly. I also recommend going to the football games and really any sport because you will have a great time! Also, the hiking trips are eye opening and very adventurous if you plan on taking one. I personally loved Morehead and I hope you will too!
The time I spent at MSU I felt was time well spent. The small class size was beneficial to a more one on one education. They excel in their art programs and I can't wait to go back and finish up my bachelors. Recently, they "improved" ADUC, a center for students to eat, gain information on the school, hold meetings, and a few other things. It cost a lot. That money could have gone towards programs Morehead took away so that they could pay for this renovation. That money could have gone to renovate buildings that desperately need it, like the English and Business building: Bert Colmbs. That money could have gone towards hiring new people instead of completely taking away much needed jobs. I love MSU, but I am incredibly bitter about their recent "improvements".
I went on a campus tour, and the students were very respectful. They got to know you, and what you wanted to major in. I also got a one on one tour in the nursing department and it was spectacular. The campus was very safe and had phone booths designed specifically to be used for calling help if in danger. The campus was beautiful and felt like home. Every student looked very happy there. Also, their food is outstanding. Morehead provides their students with anything they need on campus such as: "gas station but for food", free washer and drying to wash clothing, huge dorms, amazing food, many activities to do while on campus, one on one time with professors, and so much more. Many encouraged me to further my goals in majoring in nursing.
