4 College Student

Campus Strictness: They aren't too strict. if they didn't see it, it didn't happen.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The classes and teachers are strict about their classes and our education. the RAs aren't really strict about drinking, they just make sure that we're smart about it and that we know we're on our own if we mess up. noise can be a problem sometimes but you learn to cope with it.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: At Misericordia, most students are very conservative and do not tend to party a lot. However, when there is a problem, the school is quick to handle the issue.

2 College Student

Campus Strictness: The amount rules that Misericordia has established for underage drinking are extensive. Their main goal is to keep everyone safe and they do a good job. People do get away with drinking but when they do get caught there are serious consequences like community service and fine that can cost hundreds of dollars. My advice is to not drink and if you chose to, do it discreetly so you won't get caught. They are also really strict about grades and keep on top of you to do well. So study hard and try your best.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They Are Strict – The campus is very small, so people are always being watched. It makes it hard to enjoy college life and the freedom that comes with it.

The Misericordia Student Handbook has policies on everything from drug use to parking violations. Whether a student has done something minor or something incredibly wrong, that student is guaranteed to be told about it. There are consequences for every act that goes against University policy. Basically, the campus is very strict about everything from drinking to having visitors. Everyone gets in trouble for doing something at least once while attending Misericordia. When students get in trouble in the dorms, they are sent to an RD (resident director) who figures out the punishment. Most of the time, students get off easy with just a warning, but on some occasions, they may be sent to the Dean of Students.

Students know the strictness of the school, so they try to avoid trouble at all costs or try not to get caught. Underage drinking gets the most attention and results in the biggest punishment. During breaks, RAs go through dorm rooms to make sure there's no alcohol or anything related to alcohol. Leave wine glasses at home because if a student gets caught with one, he or she has to pay a fine. If there is one thing Misericordia students have learned, it's this: never get caught.

Facts & Statistics

Students Are Most Likely to Get Caught...
  • Being loud in the dorm rooms
  • Cheating
  • Disobeying quiet hours
  • Having guests over past 2 a.m.
  • Having loud music
  • Parking in the faculty parking spots

Visitation Policies
Visitation policies are very strict. A student on desk duty checks in guests in every dorm lobby. Guests must be out of the dorm by 2 a.m., and if this rule is disobeyed, the desk duty student reports it to the resident assistant. Even if a student wants to have guests over from another building, the guest must check in. Many students hate this policy, and it definitely affects the mood of students living on campus. However, guests can stay overnight if a host seeks approval from a staff member two stays prior to the visit.
