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.
The best thing about Misericordia University is that you can make it feel like home very easily. The faculty and professors here are the best and they all want the students to succeed. The students are very nice and it is easy to find people to make friends with in and outside of your specific major. Athletics here are at a different level and really inspire the athletes to want to be better at their sport while also enforcing the philosophy that a hard work ethic will get you to where you want to be whether on the court or in the classrooms.
