Name: Madeline Morgan
Hometown: North Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Year in School: Freshman
Why did Madeline Morgan decide to stay in the area for college? Simply because she wanted to become part of Teal Nation!
Growing up in North Myrtle Beach, Madeline watched as Coastal Carolina University continued to grow in both size and national profile. When it came time to decide her higher education choice, she became a Chant. Since starting her freshman year this August, Madeline has been impressed by the campus community and the caring professors, noting that Coastal Carolina really wants its students to succeed.
The friendly environment at CCU has already led Madeline to become involved. A member of the Fishing Club, she enjoys the opportunity the group gives her to go on trips and to just have fun with her hobby. When she isn’t fishing, attending class or hanging in her residence hall, Madeline works an off-campus job and even barrel races.
Remarking that she “can’t wait to see what the next three years hold,” we will be sure to keep an eye out for Madeline and perhaps do a #CCUfamily update on her in 2019.
