Morehead State University Reviews
great animal science program. I have not been to college yet, but from the information i have gathered from research i am fairly positive it is going to be a great college for me. There are a lot of hands on activities on campus and within each major or pathway that any student wants to accomplish. This is a great learning environment for all students especially beginners, like me. Not only is it a great learning environment, but a healthy, thus making it better for students mental state. furthermore, for everything a student gets when first joing here is very remembering. This leads me to my next point, they offer all of these advantages to the students, plus it is fairly affordable!
Morehead State University is more than just a University but a family. There has not been a day that I have walked across campus without at least one person saying good morning or just waving. The professors truly care about your education, and work with you every step of the way. Never be afraid to ask help from your professors, they are an amazing resource and some departments offer FREE tutoring! If you are looking for a university that is dedicated to higher learning and is a family, then Morehead is the place to be!
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!
