Murray is a suburb of Salt Lake City. There are many great things about Murray. Murray citizens have great access to freeway entrances. Nothing is more than a 20 minute drive away. The mall is at a central location for those who love to shop and for those who like to stay fit the recreation center is only a five minute drive from the mall. Since Murray has great access to shops, restaurants, etc. there are also many opportunities for people to find work. I LOVE MURRAY!

Such a lovely neighborhood! Has the charm of a suburb but the big city feel. Best of both worlds! I live near the Murray Intermountain Hospital and it is so nice having a health care unit close by. That also means there are plenty of restaurants to have a nice night out. There is also the Interstate close, giving quick access to head north to Salt Lake City. The streets also feel very homey which makes taking night walks fun! I feel completely safe and love the culture in the neighborhood. All the yards are pristine and you can tell that their is a lot of pride in the neighborhood.
Murray High School offers so many different opportunities between academics, clubs, and extracurricular activities. I've taken advantage of all I can and can truly say I've had the best high school experience I could ever ask for. The teachers stay professional while still being a person to connect with. I've excelled with the numerous classes offered such as SLCC Personal Finance, A.P. U.S. History, and CNA. I have become involved in the community through Student Body Officer and Murray High Cheerleader. I participate in many service opportunities involving various clubs, the mayor, and Miss Murray. I've met so many diverse faces and even hold office with a Somali: This individual, Saida Dahir, has taught me a new perspective on a different culture. I've learned the importance of optimism and can attack any road block by finding a new alternative. I personally connect with the Murray community because I work so hard to be involved.
