MSU Closing West Liberty Campus

Aug 13, 2015
Morehead State University

A regional campus of Morehead State University for nearly three decades is closing.

MSU opened its West Liberty branch in 1987, but the school’s President Dr. Wayne Andrews says participation has declined over the past five years and it’s now easier for Morgan County residents to take classes online.

In addition, he says, improvements to Kentucky 519 between West Liberty and Morehead have made it easier to get to the main campus.

Andrews is quick to add, however, that MSU is hardly severing ties with the West Liberty community.

Morehead State University professors often split their time between the classroom and the field. MSPR's Samantha Morrill spoke to one professor who just finished up a new project.
