Great Beginnings

The mission of Great Beginnings is to give students the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the campus and the community, easing the transition to Murray State University life. Great Beginnings has become an annual tradition at Murray State University, now in its 19th year. Participants will get assistance in a variety of areas, like financial aid and meal plans. Also, there will be several opportunities to meet and socialize with fellow students – residential and commuter alike.
