The sweep of history has carried Morehead State University and its predecessor institution, the Morehead Normal School, from one makeshift classroom to the tech-based world of online classes and a radio telescope/space tracking system reaching from a campus ridgetop literally to the stars.

For 135 years, MSU has been “a light to the mountains” from humble beginnings as a teacher training school to becoming a top ranked university. This year, MSU celebrates 100 years as a public institution, proudly serving Eastern Kentucky, the Commonwealth and beyond.
