Student Activities

The Office of Student Activities/Orientation believes that a vital part of the education process at Misericordia University is involvement in student clubs/organizations and co-curricular activities. Participation in activities where leadership, community responsibility, intellectual and social interests can be met both enriches and completes a college education. Students are encouraged to assist with the continued development of Misericordia's programs and services through active involvement in student organizations and activities.

Student Government

Contact Information and Board Members

The Student Government Association of Misericordia University acts as a vehicle for the students in order to build a better living/learning environment through listening and advocating the needs and concerns of the students to the administration.

Misericordia's Student Government Association is a student-run, student-elected executive board which represents the students at Misericordia University. Members of the board and delegates represent the students on various college committees. Student Government also is the governing body of the various clubs on campus and keeps records of each club's activities.

The Student Government Association also helps to run various activities on campus in conjunction with Student Activities. The executive board helps to run theme dances on the weekends to act as a break to the students on campus. Student Government also sponsors the annual Presidential Cup Volleyball Tournament.

The main purpose of the Student Government Association is to represent the students and it does so to the best of its ability. Student Government rules with the concepts of mercy, service, justice and hospitality handed down from the college community itself.
