History Club

history clubs

The Mercyhurst University History Club creates opportunities for students and professors to nurture and enrich their passion for history and come together outside of the classroom setting. The club strives to make the campus aware of the importance and relevance of history through trips, educational speakers, films, fundraisers, and other special events. It encourages a democratic atmosphere of spirited, open debate in its meetings, and always seeks to advance its central goal of a better understanding of the past.
