The changes we see on campus never come easily, but the university's outreach and fellowship never stop even though it may come in different forms. It took a lot of work to plan, construct and pay for the buildings that we walk by every day. Grants had to be sought and secured, contracts had to be signed, and many decisions ha...

Welcome back everyone! I hope winter break treated you well and that you’re feeling energized to dive back into classes again. I spent a lot of my winter break relaxing and watching new television shows that I need to tell you about. First and foremost, I finally finished “Stranger Things 2.” Warning: there will be spoilers...

Here's a column to rebut anyone who thinks Misericordia has no claim to fame. A lot of famous people have visited our beloved campus. Perhaps surprisingly enough, several Pulitzer Prize winners have walked the grounds, which seems crazy for our small school. Top shelf visitors include William Everson and William Wilbur. The...

Happy December! This semester is finally almost over - soon we will have no classes for a month, and we will all be able to binge-watch Netflix again without feeling like we have other things we need to be doing. I’ve slowly been getting through “Stranger Things” season 2 over the past couple of weeks. I think I’ve...

The Christmas season is a time of giving, and there’s no  place like Misericordia to be reminded of that. One of the traditions we hold close ...

November is almost over! It feels like once the holiday season begins after Halloween it just snowballs until we get to New Year’s. I sadly haven’t been able to watch almost anything the past couple weeks, but there are still some exciting new releases before December begins that I’m looking forward to seeing. First,...

Misericordia has always had a special place in its heart for the winter season. A lot of special events have happened while the snow has covered the ground and rested on the trees. 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...

We’re getting into the last hoorah of 2017, so here are some releases to keep you busy before the holidays come around. At the beginning of November, “Thor: Ragnarok” was released as the third installment to the “Thor” franchise. It picks up after the events in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Chris Hemsworth and Tom...

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 up...

Fall break is officially over, and while it was short it definitely helped me regain some energy to finish out the semester. I’ll be honest - I spent most of this break lying in bed watching Netflix originals. So let me tell you about them! I finally started watching “Black Mirror,” which is a series that explores some...
