Meet the Professional Staff

Megan Morris, Director of Campus Recreation

Megan earned her B.S. in Recreation and Sport Management from Indiana State University and her M.Ed. in Leisure and Tourism from Bowling Green State University. She enjoys playing soccer, softball, and traveling. When asked about her favorite part of working in Campus Recreation, she responded with, "Students! I love being a part of developing the student staff into leaders as well as getting to be a part of their collegiate journey. It's also very rewarding knowing that our programming is such an important part of students’ lives while at LUC. We have a chance to make people’s lives better daily and I feel very fortunate to have the best job ever!"

 

Kathryn Dunn, Coordinator, Aquatics and Facilities

Kathryn has a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies from Stephen F. Austin State University (Axe ‘Em Jacks!) and a Master of Science in Recreation Management and Policy from the University of New Hampshire (It’s a great day to be a Wildcat!). She wrote her Master’s Thesis on the transition from high school to college and how peer mentorship affects the transition. In her free time, she likes ridiculously long bike rides or runs followed by trying out some really awesome food that Chicago has to offer. When not biking or running, Kat is hanging out with her 5 lb dog, Eloise. Kat's favorite part about Campus Rec is the community built in its programs--"Students find their support group here and create a home away from home. We get to be a part of that each and every day!"

 

Brandi Bates, Coordinator, Ramble Outdoors

Brandi earned her B.S. from Loyola University Chicago in Human Services and her M.S. from Western Illinois University in Recreation, Park, and Tourism Administration. She worked for North Carolina Outward Bound School as an instructor before making the transition to Campus Rec. When Brandi is not in Halas, you can find her climbing, trying new foods, or really just outside in general (rain or shine!). You want to make her day? Simply bring her a diet coke. She’s excited to be a part of the Campus Rec team because she knows she’ll always be learning something, especially from her students, and what a cool thing to always be learning. Mighty grateful.
