About Us

Murray State College has two campuses, Ardmore and Tishomingo, Oklahoma. Tishomingo is the county seat of Johnston County and originally founded as the capital of the Chickasaw Nation. One of the oldest towns in Oklahoma and rich in a background of historical and cultural associations, Tishomingo has grown as a city of homes, schools and churches.

With a population that has never exceeded 3,500, the town has developed many of the conveniences of more populous cities without the civic problems that confront the larger industrial centers. Eight churches hold regular services in the town. Adding materially to the general desirability of the town and college is Lake Texoma, one of the largest manmade lakes in the world. This lake is immediately adjacent to Tishomingo and the Murray campus, and 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 Ardmore and Tishomingo, MSC serves more than 3,000 students annually. 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.
