The moment I arrived to Murray State, I was given a warm welcome by the whole community and staff. I am an international student and homesickness is often very present in my life, but Murray State has always made a big effort to make the university feel like a second home. I have found my professional interests and learned more about myself here. I look forward to see what other exciting things Murray State will offer me in my remaining time here.
