Off-Campus Housing: Finding off-campus housing is basically up to the student, but the school does sometimes post listings to a bulletin board by the cafeteria and online. Most housing is at least fifteen minutes away. Landlords are most of the time lenient and willing to work with students, but prices remain pretty high. I looked at off campus housing and it was in a great location close to a good number of places to eat. The landlord put safety first and had outside security lights and cameras put up.

Off-Campus Dining: Misericordia is right off of the memorial highway which is basically a strip of restaurants and fast-food. If you drive a little further down the road into Wilkes-Barre it is full of restaurants and shopping! I personally always want to eat off campus because of the on campus food.

Party Scene: Parties off campus are usually very fun. There are lots of people that attend. The downside is finding a designated driver and supplying your own beverages. Parties sometimes get noisy and the police come which is very bad so you have to choose where you go wisely.

Administration: Campus safety is not about getting students in trouble. It is very easy to have visitors on campus. If students get in trouble for underage drinking they try to get them help instead of in trouble with the law. The only thing campus safety is annoying about is parking. There is very little parking on campus and they have many parking restrictions and are very quick to fine.

Scholarships: When applying for scholarships there is not much instruction, but I did end up with aid.

Campus Food: The cafeteria offers little variety. We have the same meals every month. It is overpriced and I think that hours need to be extended.

Campus Housing: Living on campus at Misericordia University is average. Everyone here is very friendly, but I have a problem with the dormitories. The bathrooms are not always clean and there is rarely hot water. Another problem is the laundry system. I am always waiting around and sometimes have to stay up half the night to do it. Besides the residence halls there is barely anything to do on campus. If they don't want kids drinking they should provide more activities for everyone on campus. They also need to keep in mind college students are broke so they can't be charging money for the activities when they are offered. I feel as if we pay enough to go here already. One thing I like about Misericordia though is that they do a lot of community service.

Off-Campus Housing: So many houses within walking distance of the school. School posts/emails local realestate

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many dining options and delivery options that are convient and have a great variety.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Campus security will leave yo ualone as long as you aren;t endangering yourelf or others. They are a little more serious about drugs than they are alcohol, but they won't search your room unless youre obnoxious

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Most off the "parties" are low key groups of friends just drinking together, but if you are looking to go out there are usually three of four parties a weekend.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's pretty reasonable, except transfer students have very limited chances

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food they do serve is good but there are not many vegan/vegatarian options

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The frshman dorms are some of the best around. The housing lottery is a little stressful, but easier than most schools. Overall it;s a very easy place to live, with different housing opportunities for all individual needs.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They are good at being fair, but also strict

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
