Incoming students are encouraged to register now at murraystate.edu/orientation
MURRAY, Ky. — Murray State University has added a new in-person session date of Friday, June 4 to its Racer Nation Orientation schedule. Formerly known as Summer Orientation, Racer Nation Orientation is the required new student program for incoming freshmen and transfer students, and is available both in-person and in a virtual format.
Incoming students and their families will enjoy the following at Racer Nation Orientation:
Scheduling classes – students can get a head start on arranging their first semester of classes with the help of academic advisors.
Learning more about the Racer community, student organizations and different ways to get involved on campus. Murray State offers more than 170 student organizations.
Meeting new people – students will meet fellow Racers, future classmates, and can even meet students who are pursuing the same academic major as they are.
Special programs and events are offered specifically for family members.
Racer Book Bundle, the University’s textbook prepackaging program, allows students to sign up to have their textbooks ready when arriving on campus for the fall semester.
“We continue to see many of our incoming students register for Racer Nation Orientation, so adding this June 4 date will accommodate more of our new students and their families. With June 4 being a Friday, this is an excellent opportunity for students and their families to spend all or a portion of the weekend not only exploring our beautiful campus, but also the city of Murray and the surrounding area,” said Beth Acreman, associate director for new student programs and events. “We strongly encourage our new students and their families to register for one of our sessions as soon as possible.”
Murray State continues to actively plan for a more normal and traditional 2021-22 academic year. There is still time for soon-to-be graduating high school students to apply for admission for this fall. Students interested in joining the Racer Family can learn more, schedule an on-campus or virtual visit, and apply for admission at admissions.murraystate.edu.
