VISIT OUR CAMPUSES
Tour our campuses and meet with us—virtually.
As our communities continue to confront the unprecedented health crisis surrounding COVID-19, we’ve canceled all in-person campus visits and events through at least May 15. This includes all individual visits and Accepted Student Day.
This is an exciting time for you, and although we can’t share in the excitement in person, you can still engage with the Mercyhurst community, get answers to your questions, and experience what it’s like to be a Laker. Please know we’re still here to answer any questions and support you however we can as you make your college decision. Please don’t hesitate to reach out at any time.
We look forward to you — in future days — touring our beautiful campus in person and meeting with us face to face. In the meantime, we’re developing ways to virtually bridge the gap.
In the next few days, we’re planning on launching signups for virtual campus visits, during which you’ll be able to meet virtually with an admissions counselor and faculty member. Please stay safe and take care.
Planning a virtual visit to Mercyhurst?
If you’re thinking of making a virtual visit to Mercyhurst (great idea, by the way!), check out our Welcome to Mercyhurst 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 Ambassador and admissions counselor.
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.
