Hemingway in Paris poster

“Paris est une fête” was this year’s theme for the International Hemingway Conference in Paris—and it sure was a moveable feast for our little group that brought Misericordia across the Atlantic for great experiences, both academic and cultural. Every moment of our time in Paris brought new and exciting things (places, people, knowledge, and most importantly, food) for myself and my friends, and we are still amazed to have had the opportunity to learn in such a breathtaking place.

Sibling Rivalry or Sisterly Support

Getting accepted into college is one of the most thrilling experiences life has to offer. After weeks of anxiety and wondering if you’ll even get in, receiving your letter of acceptance is one of the most relieving feelings a person can have.

Showing Mercy at the Heart of Misericordia

What sets Misericordia University apart?

Sisters of Mercy
