FROM THE PRESIDENT
First, let me extend a warm Mercyhurst welcome to you! We’re so pleased you could join our family on the Hill.
For freshmen, now is the time in your life when education takes center stage. You’ll learn about yourself, your dreams and ambitions, your fellow students your chosen career path and much more. Each new class brings its own unique gifts to the Mercyhurst tradition. I can’t wait to see what you’ll bring to us over the next four years.
For those of you returning to the ‘Hurst, remember that education is a lifelong pursuit, and each year brings the opportunity for growth and change as well as an opportunity to give back.
As I prepare for the opening of the academic year, I share your enthusiasm and excitement, but I also understand how overwhelming the campus can feel. That is why it is important for you to utilize this handbook, and the resources it contains, to navigate the many avenues of life on the Mercyhurst campus.
This handbook presents the policies, procedures, places and personnel who help create the culture that is uniquely Mercyhurst. It can help you create a memorable Mercyhurst experience that you will treasure now and in the years ahead.
Dr. Thomas J. Gamble
