Questions and Answers

Below you will find answers to many common questions about Morningside Strong.

What is Morningside Strong?

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Morningside Madness – our annual 36-hour day of giving event typically held in mid-March – was postponed. While we felt it was not appropriate to move forward with our usual giving event, we do want to look to brighter days. We want our students to feel the strength of the Morningside community and understand that they matter, their experience matters and their Morningside education matters.

 

In that spirit, Morningside Strong week will be May 4-8, 2020. During what would have been Morningside’s commencement week, it’s our intent to show our students the power of the Morningside community by sharing words of inspiration and financially supporting the continuous work of the college. Each day, there will be activities and opportunities to show your Morningside spirit. Below is the intended theme for each day:

 

Monday, May 4: #MsideStrong - for the seniors. Share messages and videos of encouragement with Mside Seniors by filling out the 20 for ’20 form.

Tuesday, May 5: #MsideStrong - for the future. Kickoff our 36-hour day of giving event – by unlocking your favorite challenges and maximizing your gifts. It’s all about participation!

Wednesday, May 6: #MsideStrong - for the students. As we head into the home stretch, support today’s students by celebrating all things Morningside - athletics, arts, programs, and activities.

Thursday, May 7: #MsideStrong - for the faculty and staff. Commemorate faculty and staff who have made a difference.

Friday, May 8: #MsideStrong - for the alumni and friends. Mside Spirit Day, because Mside is the Best Side! Wear your Mside gear, snap a pic, and share on social media.

Besides making a donation, how else can I help?
