Racers are spirited and strong. For a century, Racer alumni all over the world have been given the opportunity to accomplish what we pursue and enjoy a lifetime of success thanks to the unique and special college experience we received at Murray State University.

Hear from administrators, faculty, staff and students about the incredible things happening on campus, learn about some of the amazing things our fellow alumni are doing personally and professionally to make an impact on the world and fondly reminisce about the memories and moments you cherish most from your time as a student.
