Abstract/Description

In recent years, Murray State University has seen a decline in the student body enrollment. In 2015, the combined enrollment of graduate and undergraduates equaled 10,998. Two years later, in 2017, the enrollment had dropped to 10,017 students. The purpose of this study is to explore ways to maintain and possibly increase enrollment at Murray State University. More specifically, this research intends to find answers to the following questions:

  • How do current MSU students think about their experience thus far?
  • What associations are linked to the MSU brand?
  • What factors influenced current students to choose MSU?
  • What could MSU improve to help increase enrollment?
  • What can be done to increase awareness about the MSU brand?
