What was Morrisville like when you were attending?
“I had transferred from a community college where I felt like nobody cared or was willing to help me to a college where I felt that I was home with family and friends. Morrisville State College welcomed me with open arms and always made me feel like I wasn’t just another. There was not one professor or staff member who did not open their arms to help with any situations that may have come about."
