“When I think about my experience at UNK, the first thing that comes to mind are many fruitful discussions with teachers from the philosophy, history, political science and communication departments. I am thankful they made the time to listen. Those talks helped me grow up a little and fine-tune what I want out of life.” In 2014, Morales received a Master of Arts in history from UNK and is now in graduate school at Missouri School of Journalism in Columbia, Mo.”
