VISIT OUR CAMPUS
Individual Campus Visits
Mercyhurst is now offering in-person campus visit opportunities for students interested in enrolling for Fall 2021 and 2022. Individual visits for you and your family are the best way to get to know the spirit of Mercyhurst, offering a customized campus experience that fits your interests and goals. During your one-on-one visit, you and your family will have the option to tour campus with a Student Ambassador and meet with an admissions counselor. Campus visits are available throughout the day, Monday through Friday.
Saturday Information Sessions
Designed for prospective students and families to gain an overview of the admissions and financial aid process, join us on-campus for an admissions presentation, which features valuable information on a Mercyhurst education. Attendees will get first-hand knowledge about academics and student life at Mercyhurst, and then take a campus tour with a Student Ambassador.
Campus Connection virtual meetings give you the chance to experience the history, academic culture, hospitality, and spirit of community that animate life at Mercyhurst. During a Campus Connection, you will be able to interact with a student Ambassador, meet with an admissions counselor to discuss the application and financial aid process, and when possible, meet with a faculty member, academic support offices and/or special interest groups.
If you’re thinking of making a virtual visit to Mercyhurst, check out our Mercyhurst Welcome guide. This PDF includes all the information prospective students and families need to get to know MU — including details on the application and financial aid processes, academic programs, student life, and more — and is a great resource to have on hand when you’re meeting virtually with an admissions counselor.
Virtual Campus Tour
Although current public health challenges prevent us from hosting you for an in-person campus visit, you can still explore Mercyhurst and discover the Laker Life without leaving home! Our Virtual Campus Tour provides prospective students and families the opportunity to experience campus from the safety and comfort of their home.
The only thing that does our campus justice is our campus. From Mercyhurst’s beginning in 1926, founder Mother Borgia Egan sought to establish our campus as the “beauty spot in the diocese of Erie.” The English Gothic elements of Old Main, designed by prominent Philadelphia architect F. Ferdinand Durang, are carried throughout our academic buildings, athletic facilities and student residences, effecting an ideal setting for university life. As you walk under the Gothic arches and across the open greens and brick courtyards, you’ll find places on campus for everything from quiet study to a pickup game of Frisbee with friends.
