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!

Students and faculty are extremely nice, and caring. As an athlete and an occupational therapy major, I think the school was a pretty good fit for me. The downsides of the school include awful food and little social life. That said it is what you make of it. The school is great for health science majors, and the campus is small and homey, you won't have to walk over 10 minutes to get anywhere
I am getting an excellent education. I am an Occupational Therapy major, and i have learned a lot about the field. I also get my masters degree in five years rather than six years. Another benefit is the fact that i do not have to apply at graduate schools. Misercordia University is the school to go to if you are interested in Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, or Speech.
