Hometown: Washington Court House, Ohio
Major: Accounting (Minor: Spanish)
Morgan Wyckoff came to Bethany College with the plans of furthering her athletic career in volleyball, but soon realized she had bigger dreams. Wyckoff is a junior Accounting major with a minor in Spanish. Wyckoff says that her hometown of Washington Court House, Ohio, is very small, so she quickly fell in love with the idea of knowing all of her peers and faculty on a personal level at Bethany.
Wyckoff may have come to Bethany College with the sole intention of playing volleyball and focusing on her academics, but she has become involved in so much more. She is currently the President of Zeta Tau Alpha, Treasurer of the Business/Accounting Club, Treasurer of the Spanish Club, Senior Departmental Fellow of the Business Department, and a member of Sigma Beta Delta (Business Honors Society), Gamma Sigma Alpha (Greek Honors Society) and Sigma Delta Pi (Spanish Honors Society).
Though Wyckoff is only a junior, she is already making plans after her time at Bethany. She intends to further her education at graduate school where she plans to receive a Master’s Degree in Forensic Accounting, as well as earn her CPA. Currently, she is interning for Costanzo & Associates in Wheeling, West Virginia, where she works on tax returns and annual cash disbursements for differing companies.
Wyckoff’s advice for future Bethanians is simple, “You may think four years in college is a long time, but it is not -- time flies.” She advises incoming students to not wish their time away, because at Bethany, "you make lifelong friends and memories that will never be forgotten."
Q: What is your favorite memory from Bethany College?
A: I have had some great memories during my three years here, but a few of my favorites deal with my sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha. Accepting my open bid was something I will never forget. I found my “home away from home” and knew that I joined the right house. I have enjoyed getting to know the girls in my chapter. Zeta Tau Alpha has opened up opportunities for me to better my leadership abilities as well as allowing me to network with alumni of the Greek Community. Winning Greek Week as a freshman and Greek Sing this year have also been memories that I will never forget.
Q: Why did you choose Bethany College?
A: I originally came here to further my athletic career in volleyball; however, I soon realized that it wasn't for me, and I wanted to focus on my academics. My hometown is very small, just like Bethany. I love the feeling of knowing everyone and the small community vibe. I thought the beauty of the campus was something no other college could offer. I met the accounting professor on my visit and knew the business department here was something I wanted to a part of.
