    Everyone always says there is nothing to do at Morehead, but that's because they don't look! There are always events going on on campus, & the University send you emails every week so you know the events that week. I love that! Also, off campus there are great places to eat, a good amount of shopping, and you're just 30 to 45 minutes from big cities like Lexington.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I'm not too fond of the location; there isn't much to do there. They just completed a new recreation center so that should be exciting.

    MSU has a great familial atmosphere. We're not a particularly small college, so there's a diverse group of people for you to become friends with and learn from. At the same time, we're small enough that you don't feel lost in a sea of people. There are so many different groups on campus, Greek and Independent, that there really is something for everyone if you're just willing to put out the effort to get involved.

    I really enjoy it here. The summer, spring, and fall months are usually nice. When it snows it the winter time and when the leaves change in the fall the mountains are gorgeous. It is a beautiful campus with friendly individuals and staff members.

    I moved to Morehead from Louisville, so obviously this was a huge change for me. If anyone else out there is thinking about going to a small college in a rural setting vs. a large one in a urban setting, opt for the one in the middle of nowhere. Morehead is tiny, and true- there isn't a lot to do...if you don't look. Make friends and Morehead is just as great as NYC. I've lost my wallet a few times, and every time it has been turned in or returned to me within 24 hours. The safety here is what I like the most. I have never felt in danger. Not once. I can walk around by myself at night and not get hurt. Morehead was rated one of the safest schools and it shows.
