With just two weeks to go before the semester ends for most universities in our region, students are preparing for final exams. However, in order to get there, they’ll first have to power through what’s known as dead week.

It's beginning to feel like a new semester at Murray State University. Faculty is returning to prepare lesson plans, students are moving back in to the residential colleges. Murray State Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Jay Morgan looks ahead to the new academic semester during Sounds Good and previews the "MSU 100" strategic plan to be unveiled soon.

Murray State University's Academic Council voted yesterday to restructure two departmental schools and thus eliminate the College of Health Sciences and Human Services.  The step was taken in hopes of reducing administrative costs.

Murray State's new Paducah Regional Campus is on track to welcome students for the spring semester. The new campus replaces the former MSU campus in Paducah, the old Crisp Center.  The project was approved in May 2011 when the MSU Board of Regents voted to enter into a memorandum of understanding with McCracken County, the City of Paducah and the Greater Paducah Economic Development Council to fund the construction.
