    Murray might be small, but it's got great places. The way most of the dorms are set up is good too - 2 people per room, 2 rooms per bathroom. No need to worry about community baths! Don't like the dorms? Most of the apartments are less than 5 minutes off campus.

    I absolutely LOVE being living at Murray. I live on Campus in the Residential College of Richmond. The housing accommodations are amazing and they make you feel so much at home. If you want to get the college experience, living on the Murray Campus will surely give you it!

    The campus is large enough to give you the total college experience, but its not so big that you're just another number. There are lots of things to do and see in town as well.

    It is exactly the type of college I want to attend. It is in a small town and class sizes are smaller. The campus is beautiful and there is always something going on that students can get involved in.
