About MSC

President's Welcome

Thank you for visiting the Murray State College website! Murray State College has a rich history in southern Oklahoma, and is proud to offer top-notch educational programs. With campuses in both Tishomingo and Ardmore, Oklahoma, Murray State College is ideally located to serve the needs of a variety of students. 

Our students are a vital part of the legacy and reputation Murray State College has built over the past 114 years and they will continue to shape the direction we are heading in the future.  I truly believe that we are better together than any one of us could ever be by ourselves.

Murray offers a variety of opportunities to engage. From a wide variety of clubs and activities to athletics. From community service to cultural events, there is a place for you to belong at Murray. I encourage you to take the time to get involved and commit to gaining knowledge, making friends and connecting with others while you are here. Your network of friends and mentors are as valuable as the knowledge, skills, and experience you are sure to gain in you time as an Aggie.

Life is lived in chapters and your time at Murray State will be a period of growth and exploration which will help define the direction you take over the next decade. We encourage you to push yourself to exceed your expectations, set high standards and meet the goals you have imagined for your future.

The fundamental goal of faculty, administrators, and staff at our college is to help you realize the promise of your potential and prepare you to excel. I sincerely believe the foundation of knowledge and experience you create at Murray will help propel you to great things. Remember, from here, you can go anywhere!

Once you’ve finished your tour of the Murray State College website, we’d love to meet you in person. If you would like more information about Murray State College and how you can enroll, contact our Outreach Office at 580-387-7136.
