What “fun fact” can you tell us about Morrisville that is not well known?

“In the nursing lab there is a mannequin that gives birth. Not a lot of students know about that, unless you’re a nursing student and you’re at the end of your program when you have a maternity course. She can give birth to twins! It’s great practice.”
