Theatre Faculty "MSU is a great place to create theatre because the environment is so collaborative.  Everyone is involved on some way in every production.  If you want to be involved, there is something for you the minute you walk in the door.  I love the hands on work I get with my students every day."

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."
