Current Students

Caitlyn Evans

“I chose Morningside because I wanted to be close to home. I am really close with my brother and my grandparents and I wanted to be around in case they needed anything. Ultimately when I visited campus, I fell in love with the people and how it felt like home. I didn’t have the same feeling with the other schools that I visited.”

Current Students

Emilio DeWitt

“I absolutely fell in love with the campus when I visited and could see even early on that this place had a small, close-knit family feel that was going to be perfect for someone like me.”

“I came to Morningside to play football but when I looked into the Education Department, I started making goals to become a teacher and lead a classroom. Right away, I felt at home when I came on my visit.”

“Graphic design is one of those things that I can just do for hours on end and never get tired of it, so it’s really one of my biggest passions.”

“One of the things that actually sold me on Morningside was the education department, just because of how involved they want you to be in the classroom.”
