- About Plattsburgh
Hello there! My name is Morgan Pellerin and I am a Freshman Admissions Advisor at SUNY Plattsburgh. As an Admissions Advisor I serve as the primary contact for the Hudson Valley region. I also work to coordinate our Summer and Fall Open House programs and serve as the liaison for Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) applicants. Please contact me with any questions about the admissions process, or about SUNY Plattsburgh in general.
Hometown: Chazy Lake, NY
Professional/Personal Biography: I grew up in the Adirondack Park that is located just west of Plattsburgh. In 2010, I graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh with a B.A. degree in History and Anthropology. I returned to SUNY Plattsburgh and graduated with a M.S. Degree in Student Affairs Counseling in 2013. During that time, I also served as a Residence Hall Director on campus and worked for the New Student Orientation Program. Following my graduate year, I spent one year working as a Residence Hall Director at a large research university. In 2014, I returned to SUNY Plattsburgh and became a member of the admissions staff. Outside of work, I am a major outdoor enthusiast and enjoy running, cycling, windsurfing, snowboarding and hiking. I am also nearing completion of hiking all 46 of the Adirondack High Peaks.
Most Memorable College Experience: My tenure as the Student Association Vice President for Academics. As a student government representative, I learned the value of public service and honed in skills that have allowed me to grow as a professional.
Favorite SUNY Plattsburgh Activity: Hands down the Student Association Events. From ski-trips, bus trips to regional cities, and late night activities there is always something going on throughout the campus.
Best advice you received regarding college or would give someone entering college: Learn to manage your time. College has so many opportunities for you that it can be easy to lose track of time and priorities. Prioritize the items that are most important to your success in college and do not be afraid to ask for help when you need it. You will be surprised by how many people are vested in your success and will be willing to mentor you through your college experience.
