Letter to future Morrisites

April 06, 2020

To the future Morrisites:

While you are home there is much time to think on the decisions you will make that will best benefit you upon the world resuming its normal activities. Hopefully, one of the things you are pondering is the next step in your educational journey. It is our hope that Morris College is your preferred destination in the pursuit of a higher education.

A 2011 graduate, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education. In receiving my teaching certification, I was able to obtain the required “highly qualified” status. It is my belief that the teacher preparation program at Morris College enabled this to happen.  I graduated from a school that was not only regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, but also held the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education accreditation for my specific program.

The employer of my first job out of college understood Morris’ rich, long history of graduating excellent students who could hold their own with any other graduate from any other institution of higher learning.  This made me a favorable candidate. Having occupied other jobs after college graduation, I have never felt underprepared or incapable of satisfactory results due, in large part, to the education I received at Morris College.

Today, I am back at Morris College as the Interim Director of Enrollment Management and Records. I implore all future college freshmen to strongly consider Morris College as their future school.  Morris is still regionally accredited, and graduates from our 21 majors have proven to be successful at the conclusion of their tenure.

We look forward to you becoming a member of the hornet family and becoming a part of your success story.


Andrew Little, Interim Director
