The Morningside College Interdisciplinary Honors program enriches the educational experience for our best students, while building camaraderie and a sense of community among them. Academically qualified students are invited to join the program.
The Honors Program crosses disciplinary boundaries to bring exceptional students from all disciplines together and allows them the opportunity to discuss interesting issues from a wide variety of points of view. In addition to discussions, additional activities for honors students are generally proposed and planned by the students and vary from year to year. Previous activities include dinners, movie nights, day trips, bowling, and special trips lasting several days to locations such as Kansas City, Omaha, or Minneapolis.
Honors students who fulfill the appropriate requirements may graduate with Morningside Honors or Distinguished Morningside Honors. These students receive an honors cord to wear at Commencement, the designation is recorded on their transcripts and announced as they walk across the stage.
