Homecoming & 125th Anniversary Celebration Weekend

As an alumnus or friend of Morningside, you know better than anyone that this place truly does feel like home to those who love it. Homecoming will take place Sept. 20-22 this year. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate in one of Morningside’s longest traditions. This year, it’s also an opportunity to celebrate Morningside College’s 125th anniversary.

Make this the year you come back to campus. See professors and friends. Share laughs and memories while making new ones. Sign up today.


Special 125th Anniversary Events

You can see the full schedule of events here, but be sure to mark your calendar for two important events:

Friday, Sept. 20, 7-11 p.m. – 125th Celebration Event

Join us in Eppley Auditorium and in a tent outside for a night full of great food, fun, music, and socializing. Cash bar will be available. A historical review will take place early in the evening, and a band will take the stage outside later in the evening. Entrance to the event free, but we kindly ask that you sign up here so we have a head count and so you can get your free commemorative gift.*

Saturday, Sept. 21, 4 p.m. – 125th Community Block Party

To celebrate our anniversary, we are changing things up for one year and replacing the Taste of Morningside with a 125th Anniversary Community Block Party. The event will begin right after the football game on the Mason Family tennis courts. A tailgate meal and anniversary cake will be served. Cash bar will be available. Entrance to the event is free. Meal tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for kids.


Sign up for Friday's event now to get your FREE commemorative 125th anniversary gift

If you sign up now and come to the 125th Anniversary Celebration on Friday, Sept. 20, you will receive a FREE commemorative 125th anniversary gift – but you can only get the gift if you sign up by Monday, Sept. 2, AND attend the event.
