Theatre Major, Covington, KY"Morehead State University is a place where you can feel free to embrace who you are and enhance the talents you have been given. MSU is a place that is safe, yet will challenge you and make you the best you can be. I feel that, just in my short time here, I have grown immensely and can't wait to see how much I continue to grow in my remaining years in my home away from home."
