Morningside University is a private university affiliated with the United Methodist Church and located in Sioux City, Iowa. Founded in 1894 by the Methodist Episcopal Church, Morningside University has 21 buildings on a 68-acre (280,000 m2) campus in Sioux City (area population 143,157 in 2008.[3]). The Morningside College Historic District, which includes most of the campus, is on the National Register of Historic Places. Morningside College officially became Morningside University on June 1, 2021.

History[edit]

Morningside College in the 1910s. The building on the left is known today as Lewis Hall, while on the right is Charles City Hall
Lillian Dimmitt House (1921)

A group of Sioux City business leaders and Methodist ministers established the University of the Northwest in 1889 to provide educational, cultural and economic growth in the community.[4][5] The location of the campus was the northern section of the farm of Edwin C. Peters, the founder of the suburb of Morningside. The university was plagued with financial problems, and it became a victim of the financial Panic of 1893. It closed in 1894, the same year that the Methodist Episcopal Church incorporated Morningside College and took over the campus. Charles City College in Charles City, Iowa, was a German Methodist college that was absorbed into Morningside College in 1914.[6]

Historic district[edit]

Part of the campus has been set aside as a nationally recognized historic district that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.[2] At the time of its nomination it contained 26 resources, which included nine contributing buildings, one contributing site, five contributing objects, nine non-contributing buildings, and one non-contributing object.[4] The focus of the district is a broad hilltop that overlooks the Missouri River valley. Charles City College Hall (1890), Lewis Hall (1900), the Vice President's House (pre-1914), Hickman-Johnson-Furrow Library (1914), Lillian Dimmitt House (1921), Dimmitt Residence Hall (1926), Jones Hall of Science (1948), Alice Gymnasium (1949), Roadman Hall (1953), and O'Donoghue Observatory (1953) are the contributing buildings. The contributing objects are The Spoonholder (1908), a curved cement bench with footpad and backrest; Class of 1922 Sundial; and the three Harmony Lane Lampposts. Bass Field, used for athletics, is the contributing site. This is the largest concentration of educational buildings in Sioux City, and it also contains some of the best examples of Richardsonian Romanesque, Italianate, and Moderne architecture in the city.[4] The district is also inextricably linked to the Morningside neighborhood, which was developed as a streetcar suburb. When the University of the Northwest was being developed there was a conscious effort to pattern it and the neighborhood after Northwestern University and Evanston, Illinois.[4]

Athletics[edit]

Morningside University teams are known as the Mustangs (formerly known as the Maroon Chiefs). The university is a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), competing in the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC). The Mustangs formerly competed in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II level, primarily as a member of the now-defunct North Central Conference (NCC) until the 2000-01 season.

The Lady Mustangs Basketball team won back-to-back NAIA Division II National Championships in 2004 and 2005. They also won the National Championship in 2009 with an undefeated 38-0 record. Most recently, the Lady Mustangs won the National Champsionship in 2015 with a 37-1 record. Morningside's Jake Stevenson won the NAIA 184 lb (83 kg) Wrestling Championship in 2007, and John Sievert won the 197 lb (89 kg) Championship in 2013. The football team was coached from 1948-1950 by Pro Football Hall of Fame coach George Allen.

The current football coach is Steve Ryan.[7] In 2018, Ryan guided the Mustangs to an undefeated 15-0 season. The team was named national champions after they captured the 2018 NAIA Football National Championship. In 2019, the Mustangs again went undefeated, becoming back-to-back winners in the 2019 NAIA Football National Championship

Student life[edit]

Morningside University is on a 68-acre (280,000 m2) campus in the residential neighborhood of Morningside in Sioux City, Iowa. Student organizations include: student government, honor societies, service groups, religious organizations, musical ensembles, student publications, and three national fraternities ( Alpha Omicron Pi women's sorority, Delta Sigma Phi fraternity, and Acacia). The campus is also home to two nationally renowned music fraternities, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia (men's) and Mu Phi Epsilon (co-ed nationally, but strictly women for this campus). Morningside's Department of Mass Communications has a weekly newspaper, the Collegian Reporter, it shares a public-access televisioncable TV as MCTV, and operates a radio station 24 hours a day at 92.9 on the FM dial, KMSC, Fusion 93.

Residence halls

Dimmitt Hall is the third oldest building on campus. It was named for Lillian Dimmitt, the 26-year Dean of Women.[8] Dimmitt Hall shares that namesake with the Lillian Dimmitt Alumni House, Dimmitt's former residence renovated for meeting and office space. A second renovation of Dimmitt Hall followed in the second half of the century producing the notable wings on either side of the primary structure.

Roadman Hall was built in two phases in the mid twentieth century. It houses about 150 students, mostly in double occupied rooms, but with several apartments as well. The dormitory is named after the longtime president of the college, Dr. Earl Roadman (1936–1956).[9] The newer wing of the building, Roadman South, was renovated and reopened in 2005. Unlike the rest of Roadman, it has air conditioned facilities.

The Residence Complex, or "Plex," was constructed in 1966 as a temporary housing for the construction crew employed to build Eppley Auditorium. The facility served a unique set of students and has since been home for many of Morningside's students. Due to its proximity to the arts buildings, many students within the Theatre and Arts departments choose to live here.[clarification needed]

In 2005, two apartment-style dormitories opened for upperclassmen, the Waitt and Poppen Halls. Between the two buildings a maximum of 72 students may hence reside. These buildings surround a central courtyard that serves as an additional functional meeting space for parties, celebrations, and student activities. Overlooking this green space is a clock tower with seating beneath.

Lags Hall, the third apartment-style living facility, completed the apartment courtyard design in 2007. It has single-occupancy bedrooms.[clarification needed]

Recent additions

In 2005, the Hickman Johnson Furrow Library was renovated to include the Spoonholder Coffee Bar, Academic Support Services Center, and new seating editions. The library's print holdings were reviewed to weed out the oldest, outdated sources, making room for additional study places.

One of the newest additions to Morningside's campus is located at its heart. In 2005, the decision to replace the campus' central parking lot and existing maintenance facilities with a grand central campus green space and new maintenance facilities was made and passed by the Board. A $26 million capital fund-raising campaign began to raise the money needed for a major set of renovations and new construction.

The first addition came in the form of the central campus Hilker Green Space. Work began in the Summer of 2006 and it opened in late Summer of 2007. The space is designed as a split-level area featuring the grand two-level Lieder Family Fountain. Walkways and a 10-foot-wide (3.0 m) access path cut through the upper-lawn making their way by Lewis Hall connecting the Hickman Johnson Furrow Learning and Olsen Student Centers. The lower level features the Kline Family Pergola, an overlook allowing views of Bass Field, the apartment complexes, all the way to Dimmitt Hall and Olsen Stadium on the other side of campus. Near Eppley Auditorium, the new Buhler Performance Outdoor Performance Center has outdoor seating and is home to many productions.[citation needed]

A softball complex was added in Fall 2005, occupying the south third of Bass Field. The maintenance facilities, added to the Southeast end of campus feature a facility capable of servicing many of the campus' needs including the print shop and mail center and a parking lot. The last addition came in the form of a new South End parking lot that sits atop the old maintenance facilities.

At the same time, the Olsen Student Center underwent several renovations. The first replaced the old Randolph Room (a center for business, banquets, award recognitions, and orientation activities) with the modernized Yockey Room. The facility features a state-of-the-art multi-media setup.[citation needed] Outside of this room, a conference facility was added to allow for business meetings and public relations luncheons. The final renovation came to the campus' cafeteria and security facilities on the top level. The cafeteria now features booth, counter, and table settings, new food area offerings, and LCD televisions broadcasting campus events. The dish washing facilities, offices, and food preparation areas have all been redesigned. The security office was placed in the old security administrator's office at the building's entrance.

List of colleges and universities in Iowa

Wikipedia list article

There are sixty colleges and universities in the U.S. state of Iowa that are listed under the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.[note 1] These institutions include two research universities, nine master's universities, and nineteen baccalaureate colleges, as well as twenty-one associate's colleges. In addition, eleven special-focus institutions and three baccalaureate/associate's colleges operate in the state. The Iowa Board of Regents, a governing board, oversees the state's three public universities – the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and the University of Northern Iowa.[1]

With 5,713 students, Upper Iowa University is the state's largest private not-for-profit school. The state's oldest post-secondary institution is Loras College, a private Catholic school in Dubuque that was founded in 1839,[2][3] seven years before Iowa became a state.[4]

The state's only two law schools, the University of Iowa College of Law and Drake University Law School, are both accredited by the American Bar Association.[5]Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine and Des Moines University are the state's two medical schools. The majority of Iowa's post-secondary institutions are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).[6] Most are accredited by multiple agencies, such as the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM), and the National League for Nursing (NLNAC).

College Resources

Preparing for college is no easy task and can begin as early as freshman year. This section will help you explore college resources including financial aid, loans, scholarships, work-study, and grants.  

Additional information about college can be found on Naviance. Naviance is a college and career readiness solution that helps districts and schools align student strengths and interests to postsecondary goals, improving student outcomes and connecting learning to life.  

For more college resources and information, please contact the counseling department at your school.  

Federal Student Aid Information (FASFA) 

Before each year of college, students must apply for federal grants, work-study, and loans with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Colleges use the FAFSA data to determine federal aid eligibility. Many states and colleges use FAFSA data to award their own aid. After submission, students will receive a Student Aid Report.  

For more information about the FASFA and college financial aid, view this comprehensive guide.

Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUS) 

This web resource lists the four-year institutions specifically founded to educate African American students. The institutions are grouped by state. Links to each institution’s website and links to historical entries of each college or university appear below the institutions’ names. 

Iowa Accredited Online Colleges 

For students looking for distance learning options, there are many online universities in Iowa, as well as brick-and-mortar schools offering online programs to earn degrees from accredited institutions. Iowa has more than 88 post-secondary institutions, 37 of which offer online programs.  

Iowa College Access Network (ICAN) 

ICAN assists all Iowa students, including low-income and first-generation college-bound students whose statistics show are most at risk of not attending college.  

ICAN provides Iowans with:  

Iowa College Student Aid 

Iowa College Student Aid makes college possible for all Iowans by working to remove barriers so that any Iowan can achieve an education. Iowa College Student Aid also provides Iowans with tools and information to plan, prepare, and complete education after high school. 

Iowa College Student Aid provides programs and resources to help Iowans succeed by: 

  • Making more than 25,000 financial aid awards each year to students from all 99 Iowa counties. 
  • Engaging schools and communities to increase college access. 
  • Building statewide support of initiatives that help Iowans stay in the education pipeline through degree or credential completion, preparing them for tomorrow’s careers. 
  • Serving as a trusted resource of postsecondary education data for state policymakers. 

 Strategies for Student Loan Borrowers Without a Cosigner 

When looking for student loans without a cosigner, you should first consider federal student loans by completing the FASFA. These do not require a cosigner and there is no credit check during the application process with most. 

While federal student loans should be your starting point for all student loan needs, there are limits on the amount you can borrow. Because of these limits, many students turn to private student loans to help fill the gap. 

If you don’t have someone to cosign a student loan for you, compare the private companies that offer student loans without a cosigner by visiting this online resource. 

Technology Resources for College 

Colleges have different strategies for ensuring students have access to notebooks and tablets. Some schools may require students to purchase personal devices before beginning classes. Understanding each school’s technology policies can add to the stress of enrolling. Visit this resource for an overview of the most common technology practices at colleges and a full list of online courses that offer free laptops for students.
