Great Beginnings 2019Countdown


Get ready for GREAT BEGINNINGS 2019!

Murray State Great Beginnings

Great Beginnings gives students the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the campus and the community, easing the transition to Murray State University life. Now in its 25th year, Great Beginnings has become an annual tradition at Murray State University. 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.
