A Look Inside Morningside College: Student Spotlight


Mass communication senior Haley Rustvold transferred to Morningside from her hometown community college. She is on the softball team, a part of the National Broadcasting Society and is involved in the college’s television station (MCTV) and radio station (KMSC).

Rustvold is vocal about her pride for the college.

“Everyone’s super friendly; meeting new friends wasn’t too hard and my professors were amazing. Also, the campus is probably the prettiest campus I’ve ever seen.”

Rustvold believes that the best part about being a Morningsider is that the college feels like home. She says that she will not forget the opportunities that she has experienced at Morningside. She fell in love with the school and the people.

“[It’s a] very friendly environment, so I will definitely never forget that. Also, meeting someone special is a wonderful memory too.”

In addition to her media and sports involvement, Rustvold was crowned Homecoming Queen 2015.

“I was only at Morningside for about a year and a half, and I had no idea that many people knew me. At first I thought it was a joke, but it turned out to be very, very real. It was an exciting feeling because at that moment I was like, ‘Wow, some people must really like me!’ Plus it was simply an honor being recognized.”


Homecoming is Rustvold’s favorite time of the year.

“It’s fall. Everyone loves the weather, the sports, and the activities that go on around this time. Homecoming is super important because a lot of alumni return to the campus, which is extra beautiful during the fall. Homecoming is such a huge success at Morningside. I am excited to come back every year to see old friends and the college itself!”
