Ava Arthur

“Though I originally planned to attend a larger school, Morningside just felt right. And even though I am still in Sioux City and close to home, being at Morningside feels different than the rest of Sioux City and it felt like a fresh start.”

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

Casey Kruger

“The awesome help we got in financial planning, the genuine connections, and the perfect fit geography-wise just made everything click for me. The community here has been everything, especially the track team. They’re not just teammates; they’re like having another family.”

Current Students

“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.”
