Why Morrisville?

"I chose Morrisville because my visit to Morrisville during my senior year of high school convinced me that it seemed like the right place for me. My soccer coach managed to get the Morrisville head coach, at the time, to try me out and practice with the team. Not only were the team and the captains so inviting, but walking around campus and seeing such a different environment other than the city life convinced me that a change of scenery was what I needed."
