Transferring made simple

“My transfer process was very smooth and painless and I loved getting to know the transfer team here at MSU. This helped me to grow a personal connection with people here on campus.”

For Kaitlyn Campbell, one of the art major’s favorite memories at Morehead State was taking her Ceramics I class and literally cheering on her classmates as they finished their pieces. She came to Morehead State from Prestonsburg, Kentucky, and loves to bond with her friends, whether as a member of the Baptist Campus Ministries (BCM) or just having dinner with her roommate at Eagle Lake.
