Morgan Ross '19Morgan Ross ‘19 (Sheboygan, Wis.) has had a busy Carleton experience, getting involved in a wide range of activities on campus including the FKK (the Carleton German Club), Model UN, KRLX radio, the tennis team, and volunteering for political campaigns.

In a series of senior interviews, we asked Ross (cognitive science) to reflect on life as a Carl and the road to graduation.

How I got to Carleton

I visited Macalester because my aunt and uncle went there, and Carleton was nearby, so I visited it as well. I sat in on a math class and was warmly included in an in-class group project. I ended up liking it a lot more than Mac and coming here. It was also a liberal arts school, which was important to me.

My Turning Point

Studying abroad in Germany my first year summer and in Hungary my junior fall provided a lot of opportunities for new experiences and self-reflection that changed who I am as a person. I can also speak German now (and a little Hungarian)!

Now that I’m about to leave

I've been fortunate to make amazing friends and get to know amazing professors. I'm looking forward to moving on, but I'm going to miss the aforementioned people. It is rare to have so many great people in one place, and it'll be logistically challenging moving forward.
