 Closing Ceremony

Friday, July 29th, 2016 

The Closing Ceremony for Murray State GSP begins promptly at 9:00 am on Friday, July 29th in Lovett Auditorium.  The ceremony will be over before 11:00 am, and then parents and scholars should go to the residential colleges to begin moving out.  Move-out has always run smoothly and quickly; in previous years, all scholars have been gone by noon. Scholars may not move out before the Closing Ceremony, nor may family members move belongings out during the ceremony.

 If you would like to know more about the program, our new documentary "Igniting the Flame of Curiousity" will be aired on KET this month. You can see a preview here! The schedule is as follows:
