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.

No Longer at the Bottom of the Totem Pole

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Sep 8, 2017

As summer came to a close this year, I found myself welcoming the return to school instead of dreading it as I did last year. Being more familiar with my surroundings and the way life works around campus certainly helped to ease my tension as the school year approached. Making the shift from full-time daycare employee to full-time student was certainly something I looked forward to as my summer quickly passed before my eyes. Coming into this school year with experience under my belt, I didn’t feel the same pressures I did before.

Back in Business for the Fall

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Aug 31, 2017

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are back in business for this 2017-18 school year here at Misericordia. After a nice, long summer vacation we should all be ready to get back into the swing of things. And for our first-year students, welcome. We hope that you enjoy your time here and that you create many memories and new friendships. This will be my second year on campus and it feels like I have been here longer than that. It was amazing how fast the time went during my summer break. But I am glad to be back, happy to see people I did not get a chance to see this summer, and excited for the start of the soccer season.

From Summer Intern to Budding Marketing Professional

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Aug 1, 2017

As my time as an intern at Misericordia University is coming to a close I think it is only right to put my thoughts into writing so that others can possibly take something positive away from it, and maybe it will influence them to obtain the same internship or any internship at Misericordia. So this blog will involve what I did here at Misericordia and a look at my thoughts along the way…

Seeing Positive Results from Summer Internship in DC

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Jul 13, 2017

This week I worked a lot on business development. I looked into various new pieces of legislation and how they could hurt or benefit potential parties. I then looked at which companies we could talk to and try and represent. I looked in depth at their company product or service and create a list of potential points that we could help them solve. I then used the information I found to create a strategy about how to accomplish these goals and land the company as a client.

Lunch with the Senator

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Jul 10, 2017

This week I received the feedback on my telehealth strategy memo and worked to make the corrections sending in a revised draft to Jenn for further evaluation. I was also tasked with creating a PowerPoint explaining the basics of managed care organizations and various other aspects of insurance coverage for a client. I was asked by another member of the Chamber Hill Strategies team to start compiling contact data for various organizations that would benefit from knowledge coming out the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) meetings.

However, the most interesting part of the week was the event I got to attend with Jenn.

Getting the Experience to be Career-Ready in DC

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Jul 5, 2017

This week I felt a lot more comfortable with working in Washington D.C. I have become more accustomed to the fast paced life style. In addition to the conference calls I was allowed to sit on, I got to accompany another member of the Chamber Hill Strategies firm to a few meetings with some of the staff of a Senator.

Learning the Art of Lobbying in Washington, DC

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on Jun 27, 2017

Upon completing my first week as an intern at Chamber Hill Strategies, I have come to the realization that Washington D.C. is extremely up tempo when compared to basically everywhere else I have ever lived. D.C. is an information super highway: there are endless new things to learn about policy, politics, and lobbying. With that being said, I spent a good portion of this week getting brought up to speed with the help of many of my co-workers.

Making Time at Misericordia

Posted by Guest Student Blogger on May 2, 2017

There is no other Speech-Language Pathology program like the one at Misericordia University. With a 5-year accelerated program and speech classes starting as early as your first semester, Misericordia was obviously at the top of my list when I was making the most important decision of my life. It was hard work to get into the program, and now that I’m here I have to continue to work hard to stay where I am. It is a demanding yet fulfilling program that will both challenge and bring out the best in me.
