Why did you choose Morrisville?
“Morrisville is the right choice for me because it gives me an opportunity to further my education while allowing me to stay involved with field hockey! Plus, it is right in my backyard so I am able to commute to campus while still being able to experience college life!” 

What activities have you been involved with on and off campus?
“As a college athlete, I am really involved with the sport I enjoy! From team workouts to spring practices, field hockey is a major part of my life on and off campus. It has allowed me to meet new people and get used to college life more easily.”

What "fun fact" can you tell us about Morrisville that is not well known?

“Morrisville’s dairy facility uses a wind turbine and methane digester to produce power to the building.”

What MSC professor has influenced you and why?

“Assistant Professor Gay Lemons has made me think and consider things outside of my comfort zone. She gives the class a chance to think outside of the box which has allowed us to create some pretty amazing end of semester projects!”

What has been your favorite campus event or activity?

“My favorite campus activity was the Mountain Dew Kickstart Truck that came to the quad for the 2013 Texas BBQ event! Plus they had an ice cream sundae bar. It was a great way to end the spring semester.”

What are your plans after college or your career goals?

“My goal is to finish the Individual Studies program and then transfer into Morrisville’s Business Administration BBA program.”
