University in top national rankings

Murray State has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges as one of the top schools in the country for 23 years in a row.

The recently released 2014 rankings listed Murray State in eighth place among the top public regional universities in the South.

The University has been a top-ranked public regional university in Kentucky in the Regional Universities-South category, which contains both private and public schools, several times over the last few years.

It is also the only public university in the state to make the top 25 for 2014.

Murray State’s overall scoring shows it to be ranked 14th among public regional universities in America.

Tim Miller, interim president, said well-respected rankings from U.S. News & World Report highlight the excellence and value of an education at Murray State.

“The fact that Murray State has been recognized by U.S. News as one of its ‘Best Colleges’ for 23 consecutive years is an affirmation of the continued quality the University offers its students,” Miller said. “National rankings such as these, year after year, clearly demonstrate the commitment at this University to providing an education that brings a top-notch return on investment to graduates.

“At Murray State, we are proud of the outstanding faculty, staff and students who make these great rankings possible.”
