Check out the latest issue of Mercyhurst Magazine to read about the sentiment of “Resilience and Resolve” that is present across the Mercyhurst campus, a phrase used to describe the way our community has faced the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this special issue, we share just a few stories from our history that exemplify those qualities, starting with the determination of Mother Borgia Egan and her Pioneer Sisters to open Mercyhurst College. Other stories reveal how Mercyhurst – and a few alumni – have coped with other challenges. And a few stories on the lighter side offer a bit of comic relief.
All these stories remind us that our Carpe Diem spirit enables us to push forward toward the goals we’ve set for ourselves, and to cope with challenges that threaten to derail our plans.
