Why Morrisville?

“I chose Morrisville because it was exactly what I was looking for. As soon as I stepped on campus it felt right to me. The Horticulture program and facilities really got my attention and I enjoy the small town feel of Morrisville. The students have a real relationship with their professors and I really feel at home here.”
