Misericordia University Reviews
Review Misericordia University
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!
For the cost of tuition, food, and room and board, this school leaves much to be desire in terms of quality. Though there are gems in each department, professors in the Business and Science departments tend to be stereotypical in their dry, long-winded and boring teaching styles. The Science department, especially regarding Lab classes, are difficult for the sake of being difficult and some professors are proud of the superfluous challenges they pose. The Humanities departments have excellent staff members that engage students to excel in each class, especially the English and Philosophy departments. The rooms are mediocre for the costs ranging from $600 to $1200 per semester and I have been in 5+ person rooms in each my two years here. The food, provided by Metz, is tough to get used to. For about a month, your body will most likely reject it and cause one to replace their drinks for Pepto Bismol every meal. It also does not taste very good, and the meals during the week are reheated on the weekends. The student body is a boring one: not many parties that don't get busted after a few hours, boring student activities, and strange niche events for certain departments. I would rate this school 4/10 for high price, poor departments, boring student life, and bad food.
The transition to college is made easy at Misericordia. The faculty and staff are all welcoming and willing to help however possible. Though a smaller college, I enjoy the close-knit atmosphere as it is more conducive to furthering ones' studies and making meaningful relationships. As a student who was originally in the Physician Assistant program (which is no more), I am eternally grateful for all the school did to help the displaced students like me find our way again. Misericordia has become a second home, and everyone there I consider family. No matter your personality or interests, it is amazing how such a small school can be so welcoming. If you are looking for the opportunity to grow and mature, all while surrounded by a strong support system, Misericordia University is the place for you.
