A few of our 2017-2018 Student Ambassadors!

Meet Wendy

Hi! My name is Wendy and I am from North Grand High School in Chicago. In the Spring of 2019 I will be graduating with an Associates Degree in Construction Technology.

Why I chose Morrison; Living in the city most of my life I wanted a change in environment.  Morrison Tech is very welcoming and small.  With the college being so small teachers can focus on each student.  In a large college you have to make appointments to speak to a teacher.  I receive plenty of help from the instructors and I am sure I am learning much more here than other places.  Plus there is not a lot of distraction, so that makes it even better  After I graduate I would like to continue my studies to become a civil engineer than receive a professional degree.

Fun Fact About Myself?  I ran a marathon my Junior year of High School

Best advice for incoming student and those starting their college search - do your research on colleges that YOU think would be best for YOU! The name of the college does not matter, what they offer does

Derek HobbinsMeet Derek

Hi!  I’m Derek and I am from Metamora (IL) High School.  I will graduate December of 2017 with an Associates Degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology.

Why I chose Morrison Tech; The industry connections and career placement percentages are so much higher than anywhere else in the country due to hands on technical training coupled with the ABET accreditation.  After I graduate I would like to secure a great job and create a successful future for myself and my family.   With a Morrison Tech degree I know this will happen. I am a few months away from graduation and have already interviewed with several of the employers who seek out Morrison graduates.

Fun Fact About Myself:  Despite wanting to be the “tough guy” I melt every time I see puppies, especially mine

Best advice for incoming students and those starting their college search: Study hard, be yourself and don’t take a back seat on the road to your future.  Become the driver
