The Morningside College Interdisciplinary Honors Program enriches the educational experience for our best students, while building camaraderie and a sense of community among them. Academically qualified students are invited to join the program.
The Honors Program allows students from all disciplines to join together and discuss issues from a wide variety of viewpoints. In addition to discussions, activities for honors students are generally proposed and planned by students and vary from year to year. Previous activities include dinners, movie nights, day trips, bowling and special trips lasting several days to locations such as Kansas City, Omaha and Minneapolis.
Honors students who fulfill the appropriate requirements may graduate with Morningside Honors or Distinguished Morningside Honors. These students receive an honors cord to wear at Commencement, the designation is recorded on their transcripts and announced as they walk across the stage.
