Misericordia University Reviews
Misericordia University is home. Throughout my 4 years attending Misericordia, I have nothing but positive remarks. From the friendly atmosphere to the incredible education, Misericordia has taught me how to be successful and independent. The professors at Misericordia are both supportive and encouraging as they instill the belief in every student that they can accomplish whatever brings them happiness. The small class sizes promote relationships with professors as well as fellow classmates. Through being an RA as well as an active member of various clubs and organizations, I have been blessed to meet many different friends as well as serve the community.
From the first time on campus, on my individual tour, I was welcomed with open arms by the students, faculty, and staff at Misericordia. Everyone made me feel welcomed on to the campus and like a part of the family, even during my first visit. The teachers all create an environment that encourages all students to share their ideas and ask any questions that they may have. The school also offers different activities throughout the semester to allow students to participate in something fun, and allowing them to make new friends at the same time. Overall, the biggest thing, besides my degrees, that I will take away from Misericordia when I graduate is the relationships that I have built here since freshmen year.
Misericordia University truly cares about their students. When visiting, the President of the campus made an appearance at every event. He even invited the tour group into his office. All of the sport coaches made an appearance and talked to every student interested in their sport. Everyone at the campus were very friendly. Everyone was smiling and it was obvious that they wanted the very best for everyone visiting. One of the staff even asked if we wanted a ride to our car after talking to her for over an hour. Every bit Misericordia was amazing and I recommend everyone to visit there.
