Josh Doering ‘17

Hubbard, Iowa

With a semester left at Morningside, Josh has already lined up the perfect job. As a business analyst in Ames, Iowa, he will travel for work, getting the opportunity to see the world, while still being less than an hour’s drive from the farm that has been in his family for over 100 years. While at Morningside, Josh developed a device that allows farmers to safely open and unload large seed boxes. He has won four national contests, including one judged by Daymond John of “Shark Tank.”

Professors with real-world experience.

“The fact that Morningside is able to get professors who have been financial professionals at top firms or who have done marketing with these big names – getting to learn from their wealth of knowledge is really neat. But then they really care about you as a student. Their door is always open to talk about how they can get you an internship or connect you with someone they know.”

Opportunity to make an impact.

“Students in business honors traveled with a delegation to Washington, D.C., to lobby for the economic resources of Siouxland. We met with politicians and gave our pitch of what we want from them and what they can do for us in D.C. It was a very cool experience to get to present to Sen. Chuck Grassley – to run with him in the morning and then pitch to him in the afternoon. And the D.C. trip was fully funded.”

Adventures around the world.

“I’d never left Iowa before, so to be able to add different spots on the map from Morningside has been amazing. I went on a May Term trip to Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein with some of my business professors. It makes you such a more well-rounded person to be able to see other cultures, to be able to see other ways of thinking.”

Great place to call home.

“If you’re looking to be a part of something – to actually get connected and engaged during your four years – Morningside’s the perfect place to do it, whether it’s through clubs, through sports, through music or through your actual classes and professors. This is a place where you will feel like you matter.”
