Many students participate in either playing the sport or supporting the team. Everyone cheers on the sports because all of the students are close with one another. Because Morningside is a small school, students who cheer actually know everyone who is playing. The athletic teams are very successful; the cross-country and football teams were amazing this year. The facilities are amazing and extremely friendly to students who don't participate in athletics. The gym is always open and has some very nice equipment that is definitely up to date!

This school is amazing and I am so happy I chose this school! The professors are amazing and even the President of the college is so welcoming! I wouldn't change this school in any way but the cafeteria food. Morningside is so unique because of the many resources that this school provides; there are tutors for every subject available every day, a writing center that is available every day, and the professors have an open-door policy. The activities committee plans extremely fun events that range from comedians or stunt performers to politicians. I am very happy with Morningside, and I feel I made the right decision for my future.

I love everything about the class sizes! This was one of the reasons I chose to attend Morningside. The professors are so easy to work with and are very willing to help you out. I emailed my professors and went to their offices every time I had a chance, and they were always welcoming. The ratio of students to teachers is 13:1, which is amazing! Morningside encourages students to take a variety of classes, so they provide a lot of different types of courses. I am beyond satisfied with the classroom experience!
