Before Dartmouth: Morgan Curtis attended St. Paul's Girls' School in London. During her time at St. Paul's, Morgan was the Hurstpierpoint National School Champion in show jumping.
Personal: Morgan Curtis is the daughter of John and Mylene Curtis. Her father, John '81, and uncle, Chach '86, both attended Dartmouth and were members of the Dartmouth ski team. At Dartmouth, Morgan plans to study biology, environmental science or engineering to pursue a career in the environmental field.
For me, it has always been about Dartmouth. I grew up hearing about the school from my father, an '81, and couldn't wait to get here! I love the sense of community, the overwhelming love for the school from students and alumni, the hallowed traditions and proximity to the great outdoors, all along with the best undergraduate education you can get. I can ride horses, ski and learn about population viability analyses all in the same day!
How long have you been riding?
Since I was six years old.
How did you become interested in riding?
Family friends had an 11.3hh Welsh Section A named Owen for their four boys. They didn't ride much, I fell in love, and it took off from there! I've been enjoying show jumping, foxhunting, eventing and galloping aimlessly through woods and fields ever since.
Tell me something that may come as a surprise to your teammates.
I was once locked for a week inside a boarding school in Lucknow, India.
What are your future plans, if any?
I've always been passionate about environmental issues, and hope to continue to devote my time to tackling the challenges of conservation and sustainability.
