STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

Jazz Studies Major, Morehead, KY "My father, for as long as I can remember, has always told me "from the heart, in everything you do." Morehead State, from the professors side, appears to follow the same philosophy. Ever since I started school, my professors have been by my side every step of the way with advice, constructive criticism, and guidance. MSU was a very good choice for me and I feel I will only mature and grow as I continue my education."
