MESSAGE from President Michael T. Victor
Dear Mercyhurst Student:
Hello Lakers. I wish you a warm Mercyhurst welcome as we enter this new academic year with a sense of momentum. For freshmen, this is the beginning of a wondrous journey, where you can discover who you are, what you aspire to be, and experience intellectual adventure in all its many forms.
I join you at that threshold of this adventure as I undertake my first year as president of Mercyhurst University. Together, we have much to learn, much to give and much to enjoy.
For those of you students returning to The Hill, we look forward to your continued growth and your positive example. By now, you know that Mercyhurst educates you in depth. Through its attention to hands-on learning combined with a vibrant liberal arts core and a commitment to service, we endeavor to equip you with the means to continue educating and reinventing yourself throughout life.
To help guide you along the many avenues of engagement on the Mercyhurst campus, we share this student handbook, which 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.
Michael T. Victor
