    Murray is safe little college town in Western Kentucky. Everyone here is so welcoming since MSU has been hosting international students so many years. It is little hard to get around if you do not have a car or if you do not have a friend with a car.

    Murray, Kentucky was voted one of the safest towns and I fully agree! Walking home late from work, school or to Walmart I have never felt scared. Everyone is so nice and looks out for one another that I love it. A lot of people that I have encountered on and off campus are so friendly and always offer rides whenever I need it just so I don’t have to walk. The bus is probably the transportation I am most comfortable with! The bus drivers are nice and they wait for me after class or work so I don’t have to walk home. I feel welcomed at Murray State, everyone is so nice at the stores, restaurants, school etc.
