Facilities

While on campus, scholars will have the opportunity to use a variety of facilities provided by Morehead State such as the Adron Doran University Center, The Rock, Caudill Health Clinic, Camden-Carroll Library, and MSU's Recreation and Wellness Center.


Health Services

Minor injuries and illnesses will be treated at the Caudill Health Clinic on campus. Clinic visits are treated as regular doctor's office visits in regard to insurance, copayments, and fees. If a scholar does not have insurance, a $20 fee per visit will be charged. Arrangements have been made for scholars who need allergy shots to get them at the health clinic. Scholars must bring their own medications and doctors' instructions. Scholars may want to bring some basic medicines with them in order to treat very minor illnesses. As appropriate, scholars will be treated for injuries and illnesses at St. Claire HealthCare, located near the MSU campus.

 

Food Services

All meals will be provided in the university dining facility.

 

Athletic and Recreational Facilities

Pool, fitness center, weight room, tennis, basketball, softball, track, and other facilities will be available during the five-week program. The campus Recreation & Wellness Center is a state of the art $24 million facility that was 100% student-funded. It merges the aquatics, fitness and wellness, and intramural departments. The 100,000 square foot building houses 3 basketball courts, a competition size pool with zip-line and vortex, fitness area complete with various types of workout equipment, walking track, racquetball courts, and locker rooms. A large lawn area also provides space for all types of outdoor activities. 

 

Merchandise 

GSP merchandise and a mementos will be available for sale throughout the duration of the program.

 

Photos

To keep up with what your scholar is doing, visit our Flickr photo page. You can also encourage your scholar to submit their own photos by bringing their camera to our office located on the first floor of Mignon Hall. The GSP photo page will be updated with pictures of the previous day's activities by noon each day. 


Religious Services

Opportunities for Scholars to continue their faith traditions are found adjacent to or within walking distance of the campus.  Transportation to and from church may be provided by the Governor's Scholars Program and/or by local churches (this is the only exception to the rule prohibiting scholars from riding in any unofficial vehicles).
 

Banking

Scholars may cash checks at the Cashiers Office (Howell-McDowell Administration Building) up to $50 per individual per day.  No two-party checks will be cashed. There are also two ATMs on campus near the University Center.
 

Visitors

The only provision for visitation for family is on Family Day. No visitors are allowed without permission of the Campus Director.

 

Personal Mail

When receiving mail, there is a specific process that occurs before letters/packages may be picked up by scholars. Letters must first arrive to the MSU Post Office, where they will then be picked up by GSP Staff. Then, the GSP staff must sort and distribute the letters to each scholar’s designated mailbox. For packages, a similar process occurs. The package arrives to the MSU Post Office, is picked up by GSP Staff, and is sorted and documented. GSP Staff will place a package slip in the scholar’s mailbox alerting them that a package arrived, and they need to bring their package slip to come sign for the package and pick it up. Please allow 72 hours from the time a piece of mail is delivered to MSU for letters/package slips to be placed in scholars’ mailboxes. It is the scholars’ own responsibility to check their mailboxes.
