About Morgan

Hey there!  My name is Morgan, and I am a junior here at the University of Northern Colorado.  I am majoring in Communication Studies as well as Journalism and Media Studies with an emphasis in Strategic Communication.  I was born right here in Greeley, but I grew up in the rural town of Briggsdale on the Pawnee Grasslands. I am a first-generation student, and was completely unprepared for the amount of opportunities that would be available for me here at UNC.  College truly is what you make of it, and my involvement as a Student Ambassador and Tour Guide, Student Phonathon Caller with the UNC Alumni Association, my participation in the Navigators Campus Ministry, and the Lead On program speaks to the amount of opportunities available for students here.  I chose UNC for the immense feeling of community and family that I experienced as soon as I arrived on campus, and I am so excited to extend this feeling to the next generation of Bears!

3 Facts

1. I am an avid lover of classic rock, journals/planners, and antiques.
2. I have a Junior Olympic Gold Medal in Air Rifle.
3. I am passionate about advocating for agriculture and sharing the experience of my small-town roots.

Favorite Place on Campus

My absolute favorite place on campus is Gunter Green.  It is a beautiful place to study or just hang out for an afternoon.

Advice to Prospective Students

Get out of your room!  Make a new friend, join a club, go to a game, or consider a job on campus.  College truly is what you make of it.
