Ordway Hall

We talk with Tina Bernot about Murray State’s Taste of the Arts event supporting the College of Humanities and Fine Arts on October 17. She outlines the (mostly) sold-out event and a few items of interest that will be in the silent auction, including unique pieces from the recently razed Ordway Hall. The evening encourages an appreciation and support of the music and arts programs at Murray State. See more information on Murray State's Roundabout Newsletter.

Murray State University is preparing to demolish an historic building next month. The Board of Regents opted to tear down the 81-year-old Ordway Hall in 2011. 

A Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education study in 2007 found the structure lacked sufficient support and did not meet current code standards.

The board looked to donors to pay for the almost $10 milllion in needed renovations.

Multiple teams of Murray State faculty and staff are in looking into many aspects of the university’s budget to find ways to make the institution more efficient and grow revenue.  MSU President Dr. Randy Dunn digs into the details of the budget prioritization teams and what this work will mean for the future of the university.


Nothing says summertime like the smell of a campfire.
