Dane Morley is a freshman from North Salt Lake, Utah. He is the second oldest of four children and enjoys running, singing, politics, cooking and playing sports. Morley’s major is business and his favorite class is choir. He likes CEU and says that his favorite part is that “it’s small enough that you can get to know just about everyone. It’s just fun!”
Morley serves as the SUN Center student leader over Active Re-Entry, a local agency that helps citizens with disabilities become self-sufficient. He chose this project because “I am inspired by the people with disabilities and I love their zest for life.” Morley has been involved in service since he was 8 years old and enjoys it because he likes knowing that he has made someone else’s day better.
Morley also volunteers with other projects, like Habitat for Humanity and Bread and Soup Nights. Kathy Murray, SUN Center director, says “Dane is an energetic, enthusiastic, quiet and involved person who really cares and wants to see and be involved in making things better for those who can’t help themselves.”
His most embarrassing moment happened one day at high school. “I walked up behind my girlfriend and tickled her, but it ended up not being my girlfriend. It was one of my friends though, so I never heard the end of it.”
Morley has this advice for students: “get involved in service, in clubs, and in activities. The more you are involved the more memorable college experience you will have.”
