Showing Mercy at the Heart of Misericordia

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on May 11, 2018

What sets Misericordia University apart?

In my opinion, it is the people, the kindness, and the hospitality exhibited to all that makes us so special. We are a community that cares about others, integrating service into our academic and personal lives. I also believe that at the core of our culture, is Mercy, one of our charisms that has been guiding Misericordia since its founding by the Sisters of Mercy in 1924.

Join a Club!

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on May 2, 2018

In my opinion, one of the best experiences you can have when you’re at college is participating in a club. There are over 40 clubs and organizations available at Misericordia, giving students plenty of options to find something to do that fits their interests. Joining a club also gives you a better chance to interact with fellow students, meet professors, make new friends, and open yourself up to new opportunities and experiences.

Making it Easier to Achieve

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Apr 11, 2018

The Speech-Language Pathology program at Misericordia is one of the finest in the nation. It’s fast-track 5-year program is perfect for the student looking to get out into the field as soon as possible. The program also takes the stress out of applying for graduate school. Classes start almost right away, so you don’t have to worry about finishing your core classes before you actually start your major. The classwork can get overwhelming, but if you take a step back to breathe and stay on top of your work, you’ll do just fine.

Sibling Rivalry or Sisterly Support

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Feb 22, 2018

Getting accepted into college is one of the most thrilling experiences life has to offer. After weeks of anxiety and wondering if you’ll even get in, receiving your letter of acceptance is one of the most relieving feelings a person can have. I can still remember the excitement of receiving all of my acceptance letters, and even the unabashed joy of being accepted to my top choice school. My time has come and gone, and now it’s my sister's turn to go off to school. Despite her determination to get as far away from home as possible, she has decided to come to school here at Misericordia to get her degree.

Hard Work Pays Off for Misericordia Field Hockey Team, 2017 MAC Freedom Champions

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Dec 5, 2017

If you’ve ever played a sport, you know the main goal is to win. You want your team to make it to the big playoff game and win the trophy that you know you deserve. Nothing feels better than when your hard work pays off. I’m on the Misericordia field hockey team and our motto is “hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard”. We’ve been practicing since August for our shot at the championship and all of our hard work paid off this fall when we won the MAC Freedom championship.

The Best of Both Worlds

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Nov 7, 2017

When visiting students arrive on campus, their first instinct is to ask, “So, what is there to do around here?” They take one look around and think there is nothing going on; but they would be sadly mistaken. Misericordia is actually deceptively busy. We are always offering something fun to do on- and off-campus along with the natural attractions that we are fortunate to have surrounding us.

A Support System that Goes Above and Beyond

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Oct 25, 2017

There is no shame in asking for help, especially when your grades are on the line. Every college has some sort of student support system to help their students that are struggling and to give them the assistance they need to be successful. Here at Misericordia, students find that there is always an outlet available for guidance and support. Whether it is peer tutoring for a challenging class, writing assistance, talking about personal problems, or preparing for a job search, Misercordia goes above and beyond to get our students the extra help they may need.

Why Misericordia?

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Oct 11, 2017

One of those age-old questions that is asked at every family gathering is: “So why did you choose (insert your college’s name here)?” For some people, the answer will be multiple things. For others, it might be only one thing that set their school apart from the rest. For me, it was athletics. The answer is always going to be different for everyone.

Keeping It Simple at Misericordia

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Sep 18, 2017

Throughout the last two years of high school, juniors and seniors are often wondering what college will be like, and even more often they are told to “get involved”. But what does that mean? Sure, they can join numerous clubs, play a sport, volunteer, and even find a job on campus- but why and...how? Getting involved seems easy enough, but what club do you join? How do you find out about the clubs? What sport do you play? If you don’t play a sport, how do you stay involved in athletics? Where do you volunteer and how do you start? How do you prepare for a job and get one after college? All of these questions are important, and at Misericordia University, the answers are pretty simple.
