New Student Symposium


Congratulations on your decision to pursue higher education! As a new student we welcome you to the Murray State College family and want to see you be successful in and out of the classroom.

By participating in our New Student Symposium, you will enrich your experience as an Aggie.

New Student Symposium

Mark your calendars and plan to attend the Fall 2019 New Student Symposium on August 9th, 2019. This event plays a crucial role in your first year experience.

Participation is required on this day as it will count towards completion of your collegiate credit.

MSC Convocation

Pursuing higher education is a big deal and steeped in tradition. Murray State College Faculty and Staff recognize the commitment and sacrifice that is made as you blaze the trail to degree completion.

Convocation is an annual ceremony used to officially begin a new school year and “gather our community”.

Family and friends are encouraged to attend this event as they will play a pivotal role in your success.

MSC “Rock The Block”

Make plans to stay and attend the MSC “Rock The Block” party following Convocation.

You will have the opportunity to explore different clubs and organizations on campus as well as visit with local community offerings. All are welcome!

College Success Course

Along with New Student Symposium, Convocation and “Rock The Block”, students will enroll in a College Success course that will meet twice a week for the first 8 weeks of the semester.

This course will cover topics that will assist students as they prepare for the collegiate classroom, work to advocate and communicate in the academic arena as well as explore goals and personal achievements.

Engaging in this course will assist students as they set the tone for academic achievement.

If you have any questions about the symposium, please contact Academic Advisement at or call the Ardmore MSC

Advisement Suite at 580-319-0370 or the main campus at 580-387-7000.
