What Students Are Saying

3.46 Average Rating
Morningside was my first choice in college because of the awesome people and it was perfect for my intended majors. Easily 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion.
Spencer from Sioux City, IA
Morningside has a very close-knit community with an open door for students everywhere. Academically departments vary in their rigor, but there is definitely a challenging course to be had everywhere. I truly enjoyed my four years here, and did not regret coming all the way out to Iowa.
