Our 2018-19 College of Business Ambassadors share stories about how the college has supported them throughout their academic journey. This week, we connected with Morgan Parker, a first-year ambassador.

Professionals in the field of finance greatly influenced Morgan Parker’s decision to major in the subject because they are “very driven, knowledgeable and work extremely hard.” She believes she’ll fit into the culture and thrive. Her goal is to live in New York City and trade structured credit securities for a leading financial firm.

She credits her academic accomplishments to the support she receives from the College of Business.

“Everything from the connections I have made, to the internship I was able to land, to the semester I was able to spend abroad, they all stem from Ohio University and the College of Business,” Parker said. “I look forward to sharing my story and my passion for Ohio University with incoming freshman and young students.”

She also wants freshman to try something new.

“During my summer internship I heard the saying ‘Get the dots now, learn how to connect them later,’” she said. “You never know who you will meet, what job you will get, or where you will end up, so join

the club, go to the info session, and set yourself up for success.”

Below, Morgan Parker answers a few questions relating to her experiences on campus:

What extracurricular activities do you participate in?

Outside of the College of Business I enjoy spending my time doing philanthropic work. After studying abroad in Africa, I have become passionate in giving back and community service.

What is one fun fact about you?

One fun fact about myself is during my internship in New York City I walked outside to leave work and stumbled into a movie scene shooting for the Netflix film Otherhood. I saw Angela Bassett, Felicity Huffman, and Patricia Arquette.

What’s your favorite spot on campus to study?

My favorite spot on campus to study would be the patio at Front Room Coffee.
