Morrisville provided me with a sound foundation necessary to become the young professional I am today. Specifically, the technical skill set I learned through the dedicated faculty placed me in advanced courses upon graduation, positioning me further ahead of my peers. Not only was I thoroughly introduced to the importance of design within the profession of architecture and its allied fields, but Morrisville also provided me a platform to excel within the public service and leadership sector of the profession. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend, embrace, and excel as a Mustang during my tenure at MSC.
