Before you pick a school to attend, choose a major but have something to fall back on in case it doesn’t work out. Don’t wait until junior or senior year of high school to start doing well in class; most colleges look at classes from your freshman and sophomore years. Every year counts, so work hard from day one and you’ll go far. Also, never give up on your dreams, because anything is possible.

Major: Human Performance and Health Promotion

Why I came to Morrisville:

I realized we were all similar because we wanted to help people. The professors are all very helpful and push you to strive towards your goals. The country atmosphere is relaxing and makes me feel like I’m home.

Favorite thing to do on campus:
I love sports, so whenever there is a game I try to go. I play intramural soccer with some close friends. I love the fact that Morrisville gives students the opportunity to work, so going into Admissions each day makes me happy, especially since I’m making extra money.

Hobbies:
I’m becoming more intrigued with crafts, so I’m always looking into something I can make or build during breaks. I enjoy playing lacrosse for fun with friends now that I have the opportunity to learn how to do so. When I’m home, I love to be in the woods with family, go clay pigeon shooting and work on my grandparents’ dairy farm.

Come to Morrisville if you are an outgoing friendly person that likes to meet new people, because the campus is huge and if you don’t take the time to meet new people than you won’t enjoy your time here on campus.

There isn’t just one thing I like to do on campus, because every week there is always something new to do and it keeps me interested and looking forward to the next week.
