The increase, with added fees, ups the cost for attendance for full time in-state students by $174.00 <strong>per semester </strong>(*correction we inaccurately reported the increase for the academic year). The increased tuition is estimated to add $4.9m to the operating budget. Housing rates will also rise four percent.</span></p> Fri, 06 Jun 2014 20:45:27 +0000 Chad Lampe 41112 at http://wkms.org Murray State to Raise Tuition 5% Faculty and Staff Might Get 1% Raise City of Murray and MSU Eye Changes to 16th Street to Address Traffic/Pedestrian Problems http://wkms.org/post/city-murray-and-msu-eye-changes-16th-street-address-trafficpedestrian-problems <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Caution signs at crosswalks address a growing issue in Murray: &nbsp;traffic and pedestrians using </span>16th<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Street. &nbsp;Murray State's Chief Facilities Officer and Director of Facilities Design and Construction Kim </span>Oatman<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> presented a study of the situation to the Board of Regents at its most recent meeting.
