“After my two years at a junior college, I didn't really know my next step. One of my good friends from high school was enrolled at Murray State and told me to come down one weekend and check out the campus, and that’s all it took. I immediately fell in love with the size of the campus and how comforting everyone I met was. It was the perfect fit.”
Murray State is located in western Kentucky, and students love the welcoming, small-town atmosphere on each campus. In fact, the Racer family is a caring community of students, faculty and staff who help each other out, every step of the way. Plus, as a transfer student, you'll instantly get Racer VIP status. That means you'll become part of the larger Murray State community while also getting connected to fellow Racer VIPs.
Murray State offers a total college experience unlike any other. Join an intramural sports team to compete and unwind, build bonds through student organizations, and take part in one or more of our special campus traditions.
