Health & Safety: I feel more safe on campus, then in my own home. The nurse is always there to help when ive needed. The ra's and rd

are nice and always compasionate towards everyone in the building but also know how to lay down the law.

Health & Safety: Misericordia is known for its excellence in health sciences. It only makes sense for them to have a quality health center. Security can be seen around campus often, just walking around and making sure everything is okay. The campus is well-lit at night, and in areas where it can be darker, there are safety stations. These stations have buttons on them that can call security if you are feeling unsafe. They have a red button for emergencies that will contact someone and get you the help you need quickly.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The facilities are of good quality and well kept. It is difficult to use some of the facilities meant for everyone when varsity sports also use the equipment. There is a limited amount of equipment, so students have to time when they want to use the gym so they do not go when a sport is there. Students do attend athletic events, but it is not their focus. It is more of something they go to so they can support their friends.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There is not much diversity on campus, but the campus is very accepting of those who are in minorities. Many faculty members notice the small amount of diversity and urge students to adopt perspectives of minorities. We have activities around campus to gain awareness about their plights and do what we can to help them. Many of the faculty members have a rainbow triangle sticker on their doors to show their support for differences in sexual orientations. The school is religiously affiliated, and while some professors will enforce their views of religion, others are more understanding of differences in faith.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I commute from my home, so I never needed to seek out other off-campus housing. I do notice a good amount of rentals available near campus though. Most of the ones I see advertised ask for decent pricing, even if it might be a little high.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not live on campus, and I do not attend parties. I am unaware of any influence that Greek Life might have on our campus.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: I commute to school, so I do not have to worry about long distance travel. With that said, the college only has one realistic way of getting there. Since there is only one way to get to the college, the route gets backed up at the beginning and end of breaks and semesters. Transportation from lower campus to upper campus is decent though. There is a shuttle that runs at convenient times and is rarely late.

3 College Freshman

Computers: I have never noticed a time when there someone was not able to use a computer. The accessibility and the amount of computers on campus is good. Sometimes some labs can be crowded when many people have assignments due. The network reliability and speed is decent, not ideal, but not frustrating either. I would suggest having personal computers because many assignments are done online and have time constraints. It can be difficult to take an online quiz in a lab with many others.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I do not dine out often. When I do it is likely at an average chain restaurant. I have not been to any of the mom-and-pop type of places because I do not wish to go alone to a sit down restaurant.

College Student

Greek Life: My school does not have greek life.

Athletics: We have varsity sports, but only a few actually get students fans. We don't have many club or intermural sports.

Campus Housing: I live in one of the newest dorms on campus. It is suite style, meaning I have one roommate and then we share a bathroom with two other girls. Our bathroom and sink are cleaned once a week. Since there is no communal bathroom our social atmosphere is not that high. I do a sport so that helps with the social aspect. The cost is average. I am unsure about the housing process.

All in all, the University definitely prepares students for future success in their chosen fields. One aspect that students find unique to Misericordia is the great amount of hands-on learning. Classes aren't just focused on lectures and reading from a book; through demonstration, students gain a better understanding and are able to handle whatever is thrown at them. Academics are Misericordia's strong point. Another factor that makes Misericordia unique is the amount of individualized attention students receive so that they can excel inside and outside of the classroom. The professors are caring, friendly, and their quality of teaching is above average. Most of the professors that work at Misericordia have worked full-time in their fields at high-end companies and organizations, so the pointers and tips they give for success are especially helpful.

Obviously, students come to college to pick a major and try to succeed in their field of study both inside the classroom and well after they graduate. Well, that is exactly what Misericordia prepares students for: success. Students get irritated that it's hard to have a social life, but then they realize that they didn't come to college for a social life; they came for academics. It's something that takes time to get used to. While most students have a love-hate relationship with Misericordia, many stay all four years at the University because of the unique hands-on learning experiences that help shape their futures.
