Student Engagement

The Office of Student Engagement 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.

What's Happening On Campus

Flyers – In the residence halls, in the Banks Center, Anderson  and Mercy Hall, flyers are hung across campus to inform you the students of the many great opportunities that exist to get involved or go see a great show!
Targeted Announcement – These messages show up right on your E-MU portal to let you know certain bits of information that directly pertain to you. Take a look at them, they let you know what is going on campus.
Campus Calendar – Talk about one-stop knowledge. The Campus Calendar has all the programs that go on campus ranging from Student Engagement to the performing arts to Campus Ministry. Accessible through myMU and the website.
myMU CAMPUS LIFE TAB - MU gets shaken up by the Campus Life tab full of valuable data, dates, and links to all sorts of what's happening on campus. Information ranging from dates to Student Government forms to Cougar Radio and the Highlander can be found under CampusLife.
Special Advertising – Sometimes all this just isn't enough to let you know of the great opportunities happening on campus. Pay attention to some spectacular marketing tools such as Stall Street Journal found in restrooms across campus or the MAC Attack in the cafeteria or Cougars Den. Sometimes signs will be on the floor, other times they will be hung from ceilings. You never know, but you do know whatever it is, it will be a great opportunity!
Student Recreation Center- The Student Recreation Center will showcase all that is happening on campus. Stop by to relax, take a study break, or hang out with friends. Also located in the Student Recreation Center, are the offices for Highlander Newspaper, Cougar Radio, Student Government Association, and Student Engagement. Don't forget to play a game of pool, have a Starbucks latte with a friend or hand out in front of the fireplace to study. Stop in to any of the many offices to see what's going on!


Spectacular Student Engagement Events!

Some Spectacular Events @ MU!

Student Engagement sponsors or co-sponsors a wide range of special events throughout the year…

Family Weekend– Come celebrate the campus in fall with the annual Family Weekend! Games, activities, and of course casino night highlight this fun-fulled weekend.  Cap off the weekend by attending the annual Dallas Harvest Fest. This annual festival of the Town of Dallas showcases many different aspects of the Back Mountain Community. With stages showcasing different performances and a gallery of booths that host different Back Mountain businesses and organizations, its not an event to be missed. Misericordia students make a statement by providing invaluable service to the success of the event!

President's Christmas Dinner – The President of the University and Student Engagement co-sponsor this annual December dinner to mark the middle of the academic year. The Dining Hall is given all the trimmings with this big Turkey Dinner and gifts for all who attend. Students must sign up for this annual event prior to the Dinner.
New York City Trips – Student Engagement sponsors a trip to New York City every semester to see a Broadway show for a great student deal. Past shows have included “Wicked," "Bettlejuice" “Legally Blonde," “Lion King" “In the Heights," “Rock of Ages",  “Hairspray," and recently, “West Side Story." Seating is very limited, and sometimes sold out on the first day!
Intercollegiate Leadership Wilkes-Barre – This leadership program is sponsored by Misericordia and allows 7-11 students from the University to join with students from Penn-State Wilkes-Barre, Kings College, Wilkes University, LCCC, and Keystone College for a year-long leadership program that is guided by Leadership Wilkes-Barre.
Smugglers Notch Ski and Board Trip – Join Student Engagement for a winter vacation to beautiful Vermont Ski Resort, Smugglers Notch. Staying in slope-side condos, students are able to experience great skiing and riding right after finals and before the winter holiday break.
Midnight Breakfast – Every semester Student Engagement hosts a late night study break full of breakfast goodness before Semester Finals begins. Served up by staff and complimented by a DJ, this breakfast is one not to miss! Semester Karaoke finals also occur at this bi-annual event!
Great Hunt – This 3 day scavenger hunt pits teams of students (and a faculty/staff) against one another in a zany competition of nearly 300 items and a loopy Olympics. Angled to build School spirit, be prepared to battle it out in a collection of items, ideas, problems, and tasks to complete before the week is out.

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 Engagement. The executive board helps to run events including their annual Spring Fest Weekend and Glow-Dodge Ball Tournaments.

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.
