Major: Psychology (This Major's Salary over time)
This school was challenging and prepared me well for graduate school. The professors are nothing short of outstanding. They knew me by name, and were approachable, friendly, and provided an excellent mentor relationship. The coursework was innovative and my major was particularly writing- and research-intensive. My classes were small, most with under 20 students. Since the University itself is small, it is easy to make a name for yourself on campus.

Students saying there is nothing to do but drink are, frankly, lazy. Though the town itself, of course, lacks a thriving nightlife, students with "nothing to do" aren't trying very hard. While I attended Morris, I saw excellent concerts on campus. Maya Angelou spoke one year. Plays, ballets, speakers, and comedians were frequent options. Most every night you could find something to do on campus. Residence hall staff provided weekday and weeknight programs. There are hundreds of campus clubs and organizations. Will Morris be a big change for city kids? Yup. But the university is absolutely worth it, and if you want to stay busy and entertained, you can easily do so.

Bottom line: my time at UMM was one of the best times at my life. I am fortunate to have received such a top-rate education and I will be thrilled if my children choose Morris. You simply cannot beat the academics and the small-college atmosphere of UMM.
