The main campus of Murray State College is in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. Located in Johnston County, Tishomingo is the county seat and originally was founded as capital of the Chickasaw Nation. One of the oldest towns in Oklahoma with a rich background of historical and cultural associations, Tishomingo has grown to include many conveniences located in larger cities.
With a population that has never exceeded 3,500, the town offers many conveniences without civic problems that exist in larger industrial centers. Adding materially to the general desirability of our location is Lake Texoma, one of the largest manmade lakes in the world. This lake is immediately adjacent to Tishomingo and the Murray campus. Its location adds to the possibilities of an already well-known recreation center, besides providing unlimited opportunities for research in biology and other related fields.
Murray State College serves a 10-county area which includes Atoka, Bryan, Carter, Coal, Garvin, Johnston, Love, Marshall, Murray and Pontotoc counties. With campuses in Tishomingo and Ardmore, MSC serves more than 3,000 students annually in traditional classroom settings and through online programs. The College’s mission is to provide opportunities for student learning, personal growth, professional success and community enhancement. Murray State College offers associate degrees in science, arts and applied science.
