Student Profile: Morgan Beeler
When Fremont junior Morgan Beeler first visited Alma College, she immediately crossed it off her list of potential college choices. But once she took a better look at all the opportunities Alma gave its students, she says she quickly reconsidered.
“I’ve been able to get involved in so many amazing things here: Public Affairs Institute, P-Global, Model UN, Center for Responsible Leadership, Kappa Iota and Alma Symphony Orchestra,” she says. “Not only are all of these experiences going to benefit me on a graduate school application, but they have really molded me as a person. I now know who I am and what I want to do with my life.”
Beeler, an environmental policy major, also has long participated in PRISM, first doing water analysis research and now as a mentor. She says she is passionate about the mathematics and science program, which allows students to conduct hands-on research early on.
“The PRISM program gives undergraduate students opportunities that people at the graduate level are fighting for,” she says. “You get to work one-on-one with your professors. I would really encourage any prospective student interested in the sciences to do PRISM, as it has made my Alma experience even more special.”
Travel opportunities also have been an important part of Beeler’s Alma experience. In addition to traveling around the country with Model UN and Public Affairs, she recently went to Europe on a sustainability Spring Term course. She hopes to take this experience and passion for environmental policy to law school.
“My environmental policy major encompasses a lot of my future career goals,” she says. “I also have minors in public health and political science. I’ve always been really interested in sustainability, so I would eventually like to work in public health policy with an emphasis on environmental health impact.”
