Much More Denver

Kansas- There's No Place Like Home

 Permanent link   All Posts

It is now officially Thursday, March 17th ,  which used to be known as St. Patrick’s Day, but now on the fan buses it is known as “Game Day”  Even though we still have many miles to go, the excitement for us is building. I know I am ready to arrive at the Denver’s Pepsi Center and show Denver just who Morehead State is. 

As we travel through the flatlands of Kansas, “The Wizard of OZ” comes to mind, and how Dorothy said, “There is No Place Like Home.” I think that Dorothy is right, and I can guarantee, that there are many people who consider Morehead “home” even though they may not have been there in quite some time.

It is great to see on all of MSU’s social media outlets the amount of alumni who are supporting the team, the coaches, the fans traveling on the buses, and the University in general in our quest to the Big Dance. I love logging into my facebook and seeing all of my friends who attended Morehead State with their profile pic as something MSU related. Or checking out the MSU FB www.facebook.com/MoreheadStateUniversity and seeing all of the “Go Eagles” and “I will be watching the game” comments. I hope that this sense of camaraderie will carry on well into 2011 and later.  

You have a lot of time to think on a 20 hour bus ride, and for me I have thought about  my life in undergrad and graduate school. The lunches in ADUC, the Free Friday Movies in the old Theater downtown, the MTV Real World people that would come and speak to students, the concerts in the AAC, the 2 life changing opportunities I had going on the Spring Break, Spring Back Trips to Gulfport, MS to help with Katrina Relief, the list can go on and on, but if you can’t tell already MSU is a very special place to me. In the words of Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, and Linda Ronstadt, “It Feels Like Home to Me.”

So if you haven’t had the chance to be on campus lately, I highly encourage you to do so. There has been so many great additions like the new Space Science Building, the Center for Health, Education and Research where our Nursing and Imaging Sciences classes are now located,  and the new Student Recreation Center which will be finished soon. 

If you know a high school student who is trying to narrow down their college choice, have them visit campus and see why so many people wish that they can click their heels 3 times and appear on campus. You can schedule a campus visit at www.moreheadstate.edu/visit
