Recruiting Tip: Basic do's and don'ts


  • Be friendly, attentive, and smile. The best thing you can do is to convey your enthusiasm about Morehead State University.
  • If you are an alum, enjoy the fact that you are sharing your alma mater with prospective students and their families. Stress your feelings about MSU and the preparation it provided for you in your career.
  • Realize that MSU is not for everyone.
  • Know basic information on admissions, cost of attending, and bragging points.
  • Refer specific questions that you are unable to answer (admissions, housing, financial aid, academic programs, etc.) to department representatives as soon as possible.
  • Dress professionally when representing MSU.


  • Don’t be afraid to say you don’t know the answer to a question. Get the student's information and get the correct answer to them.
  • Don’t talk badly about other institutions. Discuss Morehead State's strengths.
  • Don’t guarantee admission.
