DOVER, Del. - Wesley College senior Morgan Seymour has made the most of her college experience. The dual-sport student-athlete is seemingly everywhere on campus at all times, active in several different campus activities and organizations.
Morgan was a 2015 All-Conference selection for Wesley College Field Hockey and is helping the Wesley College Softball team to another outstanding year. In addition to her on-field accolades, Seymour also holds the title of Student-Athlete Advisory Committee President, works in Wesley College Admissions as the Student Ambassador Coordinator, and waits tables part-time in nearby Smyrna.
"My pocket planner is my best friend," said Seymour, "I write everything down or I forget it."
Seymour's day starts around 6:30 a.m. when she wakes up to help on the family chicken farm before commuting into Dover to attend classes, practice, or games. Classes and schoolwork take up a large chunk of her day, with sports and work consuming most of the rest of her time. When she was asked what she did with her free time, Seymour laughed.
The senior wouldn't have it any other way though, "I like being busy. It's created a well-rounded college experience for me where I've done a lot of different things," said Seymour. Her busy schedule and work ethic have built her quite a resume. This summer, Morgan has been selected for an internship with the Scapyard Dawgs of the National Professional Fastpitch League (NPF) in Conroe, Texas, just north of Houston.
Seymour credits her time at Wesley for helping her earn her dream internship, and hopes that it translates into even more career opportunities, "Wesley is full of opportunities. It's just a matter of taking advantage of what you're given," said Seymour, "Students here don't always intitiate or take advantage of the opportunities. It's not that they don't exist, it's just a matter of going out and getting your foot in the door."
Seymour has taken full advantage of her Division III Student-Athlete experience, and plans to have it continue: "I'd like to come back and finish my last year of eligibility in field hockey next fall, and start graduate classes here at Wesley," she said. "But I'd also like to eventually go to a different environment and continue my education and maybe get into coaching as a graduate assistant. Really anything to do with athletics, either in coaching or administration would make me happy."
