Morehead State University (MSU) is a public, co-educational university located in Morehead, Kentucky, United States in the foothills of the Daniel Boone National Forest in Rowan County, midway between Lexington, Kentucky, and Huntington, West Virginia. The school was founded in 1887 as Morehead Normal School, a church-supported teacher-training school. It was taken over by the state in 1922. The school's name changed as its mission broadened—to Morehead State Normal School and Teachers College in 1926, Morehead State Teachers College in 1930, Morehead State College in 1948, and Morehead State University in 1966. The 2013 edition of "America's Best Colleges" by U.S. News & World Report named MSU one of the top 25 public universities in the South. MSU was recognized in 2013 by The Daily Beast as a top underrated school. The school newspaper is The Trail Blazer. The campus is ranked among the safest in the nation.
