Misericordia University Reviews

I love Misericordia. It is a comfortable and friendly university. The professors/advisors are willing to go the extra mile always for a successful academic experience. It also is a safe campus with security always. I believe that is very important especially to not only feel comfortable, but with the way the world is now. Misericordia University is a wonderful university and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a small, comfortable college.

Misericordia University is an amazing school to go to if you want to feel at home. It's a small university, but very active. You make friends quickly and everyone is very nice. If you're struggling, whether its with a class or more on the personal side, there are tutors and counselors to help. Misericordia tries their best to have everyone involved, they don't like to see anyone left out and it is rare to see that.
Misericordia offers many courses. Some are more pertinent than others, but there is not such thing as wasted knowledge! I would only recommend revising the core curriculum so students are not required to take so many classes that do not pertain to their career field. Then again, a well-rounded individual is better prepared for life than someone with only knowledge of a particular job!
