Misericordia prides itself with this motto: "learn to succeed." So naturally, as at any institution, academics are the key to success. Students are placed into challenging classes that offer hands-on learning experiences. While classes are demanding and much effort is placed outside of the classroom in order to succeed, professors are always willing to help, and students tend to develop close relationships with them because of small class sizes. Professors often end up becoming friends with students, and they are even willing to help and offer advice well after the semester ends. Professors are reliable because they only want to see students succeed. No matter the time of day, students can call their professors just to ask a simple question about a project or assignment.
The institution lives up to its high academic standards because most students have a reserved spot on the Dean's List during all of their academic years at Misericordia. Most of the majors have a 100-percent passing rate, and students are always being recognized for succeeding academically both inside and outside of the classroom. When it comes to registering for classes, course scheduling is done online and can be a pain. Students schedule based on their academic year, so seniors have the most options, while freshmen may not get the classes they want.
