It was my mistake in coming here in the first place, but to save others like me the trouble I will write you this. I'm from northern Illinois, and went down here because I've heard nothing but good things about it. The minute I arrived one of the conselors hit on my gf right in front of me, and was into partying it up with the students. The faculty was decent though, loved talking of kentucky way too much. If you're not from Murray or KY, I suggest not attending this college. The students wear nothing but cammo, and are very closeminded. Other students from the Chicago area choose to be the only one, so don't think you'll make many friends from home. You're only options are to join a frat, which like to give you terrible exams and yell at you for failing, or intramurals. There were some nice people, but not enough. It's a nice school if you like being in the middle of nowhere, and hearing nothing but "St. Louis and Louisville are the greatest cities in the world@!" Some of these people I must say have never seen a large city. Murray is a horribly small town? I guess you can call it a town, but its just a about 1,000 or less people. The weather is awful, humid all year round. Sometimes it's cold, but then the heat will go up for no apparent reason. The bugs are disgusting, and are everywhere. People smell often, and look like they havent showered in weeks. Nobody stays on the weekend, and the sports aren't worth watching. Don't go to this school thinking you'll be in girl paradise, most have boyfriends, or will end up fat by the end of their 4 years here. If you like the small town feel of a kentucky town, then murray is the perfect fit for you. If you like to be in a big city, and have a great night life, then don't go here.
