My experience at Mercyhurst University was beyond blessed! I am so grateful for all of the opportunities that were available to me through both my academic classes and the student clubs/organizations I was involved in. Mercyhurst made it possible for me to grow academically through a brilliant liberal arts education and also helped me grow spiritually through the vibrant presence of the Catholic faith instilled by the Sisters of Mercy. Go lakers!

The professors at Mercyhurst University take the time to get to know each and every one of their students and provide guidance and assistance every step of the way. The small class sizes enable students to get the extra help that they need and allow students to feel like they are more than just a number. Although Mercyhurst University may be fairly small in size, it is not lacking in extracurricular activities, as there are plenty of clubs and organizations to become involved in.
