Eli Morris, '13
Eli Morris, a middle childhood mathematics and science major, graduated earlier this month after completing his student teaching. He is from Milford Center, Ohio.
“I chose Muskingum because of the hometown feel, beautiful campus layout, and small classroom sizes. I enjoy any activity that involves the great outdoors and Muskingum's surrounding area has a lot to offer. Also, I knew at Muskingum I would be recognized by a name and not a number,” Morris explains his decision to attend Muskingum.
Morris was a resident assistant (RA) on campus and also participated in one year of golf and basketball. He was a member of Lambda Sigma and the Collegiate Middle Level Association. Morris decided to become an RA after an RA reached out to him his freshman year. “I knew I wanted to provide the same influence,” he says.
Morris is most thankful for “being surrounded by an unselfish group students [on campus]. Whenever I needed help on specific academic materials, there was always someone I could contact. Without their help, I would not be in the position I am today.”
Morris offers good advice to high school seniors searching for that “perfect fit” when it comes to college: “The perfect college fit comes from your ability to adapt. You determine the outcome of your college experience. So make the most of it and don't run away from change, embrace it.”
