Supporting student success

College is a time for students to spread their wings, try new things and challenge themselves both inside and outside the classroom. But it’s also a stressful time when many students – especially first-year students – have trouble adjusting to all the changes and find themselves unsure how to advocate for themselves and make the most of their college experience.

That’s why Penn State alumni Jeff (’74 B.Arch.) and Debra (’74 B.S. H&HD) Morgan established the Morgan Endowment for Student Success in the College of Arts and Architecture, intended to fund programs to support student counseling and advisor training.

The Morgans were motivated to establish the endowment after numerous conversations with parents and with students who were struggling to adjust to the rigors and expectations of the college environment.
