The community's giving spirit has always been apparent during the holiday season. But even as the faculty, students and staff were  giving gifts to ev...

Misericordia is a place where so many of us feel safe and at home, but history tells us it hasn't always been that way. The Ku Klux Klan has spread its hateful message in this area for long before this school came to be, and perhaps shockingly, our beautiful campus has had its encounters with the KKK. The Klan has stirred...

Spooky Halloween fun is a tradition on campus, and students have been celebrating in many ways throughout the years. Haunted houses are a hit on campus, but they have scared students for ages.  On Oct. 28 1954, the freshman class put on a haunted house called “Hernados Hallway” in the cafeteria.

October is the month of leaves,  jack-o-lanterns and pumpkin spice everything. We hear the crunch of the leaves under our boots as we walk under the trees, from building to building, worrying about school work and the cold winter ahead. We know these buildings like the back of our hands, but imagine a time when they weren’t...

Misericordia University, the school on the hill that so many of us call home. Almost 100 years of history has filled this beautiful hilltop in Dallas Pa. Some things have not changed: the sense of community, the amazing education and positivity. But other things have. Misericordia has grown since the day it opened its doors in 19...

The weather is weird, school work is firing up and more TV shows are premiering. As the first full month of the fall semester comes to an end, there are still some exciting new releases before the Halloween-exclusives begin.
