Celebrating 100 Years of Racer History

In 1922, Murray, Kentucky, was chosen by the state legislature as the home of the western Kentucky normal school, known 今天 as our beloved Murray State University. For 100 years, Murray State students have been provided a collaborative, opportunity-rich living and learning community that fosters personal growth and professional success through a high-quality college experience.

Over the course of ten decades, Murray State has been building a global alumni community. We cannot wait to see what the next 100 years has in store for our University and for our Racer Family all over the world.

We are future-thinking. We are trailblazers. 澳门银河手机app官方网站下载.
