Misericordia University celebrates 90 years of excellence
Misericordia University is Luzerne County’s oldest four-year institution of higher education. In recognition of its storied history (1924-2014) and bold future, the University is celebrating its 90th anniversary with a slate of events that reflect upon and honor the past nine decades, while also looking toward the future.
Misericordia began as an intimate, all-women’s college that has grown to become a regionally acclaimed and nationally recognized University that offers bachelor, master and doctoral degrees to men and women in 34 academic programs.
Alum returns to campus as visiting professor
Thirty two years, 12 countries and numerous global conflicts later, Marguerite R. Roy, J.D., ‘82, returned to her alma mater for the 2014 spring semester. She did not enroll as a graduate student, but rather embarked on another career as a visiting professor in the Department of History and Government to develop international programs and internships.
Imbedded as a reporter to bring back pictures and stories on the Misericordia University service-learning, mission trip to Guyana, I was far less prepared than the students and my intent was not nearly as selfless.
Mary Bove, a senior communications major at Misericordia University, recently completed a summer-internship program at LA Weekly in which she honed her photography and videography skills while covering feature assignments at a broad array of events in the Los Angeles, Calif., media market.
