Murray State Minute

All Campus Sing

Each April the quad at Murray State University springs to life for one of our best and longest running campus traditions… All Campus Sing. All Campus Sing is a highly competitive song and dance competition pitting Greek organizations and other student organizations against each other for ultimate bragging rights. Not only must they sing and dance in harmony, including solos, they have to do it all balancing on the steps of historic Lovett Auditorium. The quad is packed with students, faculty, staff, alumni and members of the community. And, alumni all over the world tune in by the thousands for our live stream. The event is organized by Murray State’s chapter of the national women’s music sorority, Sigma Alpha Iota, and raises money and awareness for their philanthropy, People to People, an organization that provides musical instruments to children in need. This year all campus is Wednesday, April 17, at 3 p.m.

School of Nursing and Health Professionals Groundbreaking

With the field of healthcare growing and seeing more demand, the new facility will help Murray State continue to meet the needs in the region for healthcare professionals.
