Murray State was a cheap option for me to get my basics out of the way before moving on to a university. I went there because it was close to home, I could commute, and it cost me very little. That being said, you get what you pay for. The professors rarely truly care about teaching, the classes weren't challenging at all, and the overall atmosphere was generally not friendly. It was a good dollar value, but not a good experience.

Murray State College is a great place to learn. The staff/instructors and Counselors are extremely nice and helpful!
Murray state College will always hold a spot in my heart. This is the school where I met some of the greatest people in my life. My soccer coach Cortney Wiesler this women went above and beyond when it came to her players. We had study hall where she would sit and make us study for two hours. she would keep up with our grades to make sure we were doing the best that be could. My team will be my forever family. They were there to teach me how to love myself for who I am and to push myself to my best abilities. Murray was a small school, but everyone knew everyone and never was there a hesitation when someone asked another student for help.
