Morgan Moss is an example that for every excuse or challenge that is faced, there is something people can do about it.
As a nontraditional student in the Anderson College of Business, it would be easy for Moss to make excuses. She is currently doing the combined bachelor and master’s degree in accounting from Regis.
She also is working full time and is raising three children — 3-year-old Olivia and 1-year old fraternal twins Asher and Jack.
“I want to show them that while there will always be excuses and challenges, if you really want something and put in the effort to see it through, you can do it,” she said.
Moss — somehow in between classes, work and chasing three children — sat down with Regis.edu to talk about how she stays involved, how she handles her busy schedule and what the business school means to her.
As a nontraditional student, how do you stay involved?
I engage with the Regis Community through participating in as many activities as possible, both academically and socially. I’m a member of the Investment Club, the Accounting Club and attend a number of events which Regis assembles, including industry tours, speaker nights, workshops and special events. The best part are the connections I’ve made at Regis. I appreciate the flexibility offered for students like me with a full schedule.
What does stewardship mean to you?
Stewardship means caring — about each other and about our resources. Perspective is everything. We are all stewards to the wealth God has entrusted to us. Stewardship is foundational understanding that we are not owners of things, but managers. It is finding ways to give of yourself to serve the greater good.
How is a Regis business school degree different?
It’s guided by core Jesuit values which prepare students to think on and achieve goals beyond themselves. The more I engage, the more I feel inspired to not just work at being competent in my field of study, but to also strengthen my character and find passion in my work and life in a way that can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. The faculty and staff I’ve encountered at Regis have a commitment to empowering students and I have whole-heartedly felt that here. Regis 100 percent lives their mission to develop students as a whole person.
