My advice would be to read and understand all the laws pertaining to you (US and kentucky laws) and its not a bad idea to carry them around with you. Don't let a LEO tell you you're too young to carry. I don't know about morehead university but I would suggest stay off of the campus with it unless you know you can carry there (I doubt you can). Stay safe.
And only carry a gun if you are prepared to take another man's (or woman or child if need be) life. Carrying a gun is a great responsibility, think about situations you may be in and think about what you are going to do in those situations before you are put in them. That way you can react in a split second.
