ZOE MORSE

Senior women’s soccer captain Zoe Morse is majoring in global public health and minoring in environmental science. She helped start Green Athletics, a student-run group that collaborates with UVA’s Office of Sustainability and the athletics department to encourage and support sustainability across all athletic platforms.

Our athletics department is really trying to help you be well-rounded – a good person, a successful student and a successful athlete. I’ve had a great experience here and I’m proud to be a Cavalier!”
