Programs and Activities

Getting Involved

Enhancing your social experience at MSU is easy when you become engaged with the campus community – and you’ll be pleasantly surprised with everything being an Eagle has to offer. We have more than 100 student clubs and organizations – including departmental and sports clubs, performance ensembles, service and honor groups, and religious and social organizations. Our Campus Activities Board and other student organizations are always working to organize annual events like Family Weekend and our Homecoming celebration, along with concerts, comedians, guest speakers, community service opportunities, numerous music, theatre and dance productions, and other social events throughout the year.


Staying Healthy

In addition to your comfort and safety, MSU also cares greatly about your overall health and well-being. You can stay active and fit at our nationally-recognized and award-winning Recreation and Wellness Center.

MSU also offers health services. A short walk gives you access to medical and mental healthcare through our Counseling and Health Services. There is no cost for treatment but a health insurance card is required for appointments. For more information, call 606-783-2123 or visit Counseling and Health Services.

Outdoor Recreation

Feel like getting outside? You definitely should at MSU. Between our beautiful campus, having Eagle Lake within walking distance or Cave Run Lake just a short drive away, there are plenty of opportunities to walk, hike, bike and make the most of your scenic surroundings. Plus, Outdoor Adventures, located in the Recreation & Wellness Center, allows you to sign up for outdoor trips, take workshops on various survival skills, rent camping and hiking equipment, or kayaks and paddleboards for Eagle Lake.


Eagle Athletics (NCAA Division I)

At MSU, we have a proud, championship culture. We play to win... on and off the field. MSU student-athletes compete for the best academic success and athletic accomplishments each year. Our Eagles are charter members of the Division I Ohio Valley Conference (OVC), where we have won numerous OVC titles in sports like basketball, baseball, volleyball, golf and soccer. We also compete at the football championship subdivision level in the Pioneer Football League. As a student, you get to see any of our student-athletes from all of our athletic programs play for free with your EagleCard.
Our student-athletes also have a winning record when it comes to academic excellence. We have won the prestigious OVC Institutional Academic Excellence Award 12 times and our teams finish among leaders in their conference and nationwide. MSU is dedicated to providing our student-athletes with exceptional academic resources like our Eagle Athletics Guided Learning & Enhancement (EAGLE) Center. This 7,000 square-foot facility features wi-fi internet access, computer stations and areas for both private and group study, helping our Eagle athletes bring their A-game on the field, on the court and in the classroom.
Our Morehead State Cheerleaders are frequently declared the very best cheerleading squad in the nation. They compete at the Universal Cheerleading Association college cheerleading championships and hold 46 national titles. If you want to be a part a winning tradition and join our all-women’s or coed squads, tryouts are held in the spring. You can also audition for our outstanding dance team.
