So excited to be a blogger! Let me introduce myself… my name is Kellen Morrissey, I’m a junior math major, with education and business minors, and I play field hockey and lacrosse. I spent my summer at home in Colorado, as well as in Lesotho, Africa for a month for a trip with Dr. Rosenberg and 37 other Witt students. Going to Lesotho was an incredible experience and I would definitely encourage everyone to go!
As incredible as my summer was, I have been so glad to be back at Wittenberg! I came back to campus a few weeks early for field hockey preseason and some intense 2-aday practices. Our field hockey team won the NCAC season last year, so we have some big shoes to fill this year. We scrimmaged last night at OWU and I think it got us all pumped for our first game in less than a week!
This year I’m living in my sorority house which has been quite the adventure already. We’ve all had a great time catching up, watching movies, and enjoying the food prepared by our new cook (definitely the best part of living here). My classes this year might be challenging, but so far I’m very excited about them. My “Philosophy of Hip-Hop Culture” class has been one of the most interesting electives that I’ve taken so far, and one of my upper-level math classes has only 6 people which has really helped to understand the lessons and get help from the professor. Other than school and field hockey, I’m working for my coach as an office assistant and as a consultant in the Oral Communication Center. It should be a busy and exciting year, and I can’t believe I’m a junior!! It’s been great to see my Wittenberg family and it makes me feel at home to be back! I’m looking forward to blogging about my hopefully fantastic year!
