Together we are McMurry

At McMurry University, you'll find small classes, caring professors, and a diverse and active student body. With 1,100 students and an 11:1 student to faculty ratio, calling ourselves a community isn’t just something we say here, it’s something we make real!

Each year, our students compete in 21 intercollegiate sports including football, swimming, and esports (with 42 conference championships in the last 25 years, go War Hawks!), lead over 40 clubs and organizations, and engage with our community in more than 24,000 service hours. In the classroom, students like you are able to put their education into practice, whether by managing our completely student-run investment fund of $1,000,000 from the university’s endowment, researching the metastasis of breast cancer (pink lab coats and all), assisting with COVID-19 vaccination clinics through our Nursing School, or observing in the magnet classroom of 5th graders on campus.

As a Christian university with half of our students identifying as a minority ethnicity, we understand that real community is best lived when we are welcoming to students of all beliefs, backgrounds, genders, and interests. Our strong financial aid is designed to make your college education affordable and tailored to fit your needs.

McMurry’s Community Commitment

McMurry University trains students to serve through sacrifice and lead by example in whichever field they are called, be it education, health care, ministry, public safety, or civil service. We see people, including our McMurry alumni, serving and making a difference through these careers in our communities, and we champion the selfless work they do.

If you or a parent/guardian lives a life of service and works in one of these industries, McMurry’s Community Commitment is for you. The Community Commitment guarantees that students of these essential workers will receive a minimum of 50% tuition covered at McMurry.
