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.

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.

Getting accepted into college is one of the most thrilling experiences life has to offer.
