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!
The campus is beautiful with many places for students hang out with friends or study for upcoming exams, finals, quizzes, etc. There are a variety of people that are also attending this school which provides for a great opportunity to meet new people and gain new friendships. Overall, many buildings on campus for students to live are in fairly good conditions. There are many classes offered for such a wide variety of fields. There are great restaurants on campus as well as numerous resources to get help for different concerns. Being a first year college student was a big change, but the professors made a welcoming gesture and eliminated extra stress that many incoming college students were facing. I would recommend this college to anyone planning to attend college. When riots start on campus because of LGBTQ members, it makes it extremely difficult to not say anything to those trying to push their belief onto others. Numerous people leaving out God has been my biggest struggle.
