Parents and Families

Dear parents and family:
We understand

At Murray State University, we recognize that college is a huge decision. It’s an investment in both time and money, and you want to make sure your son or daughter get the most out of their experience. That’s why we believe college should be more than slideshows and lectures. Racers earn their degrees through real-world learning, internships and career networking opportunities that prepare them for success long after graduation.

“We looked at several different in-state and out-of-state colleges, and we compared tuition and fees and figured in room and board as well as the meal plans. We evaluated the campuses and business program with graduation rates and, when it was all said and done, Murray State came out on top.”
