Mercyhurst North East Student Government Association

The core of the vibrant student life at Mercyhurst North East is the Student Government Association (SGA). This high-energy group of elected student representatives promotes clubs and organizations, offers community service opportunities and presents a lively, diverse schedule of activities, events and outreach throughout the year. SGA also serves as the liaison between the student body and the administration.

SGA offices are conveniently located in the Student Union, which is a central location for students to get involved with campus activities and events and meet new people. The Student Union is an environment that is welcoming and one in which students can fully interact and participate in a range of activities. There is a free pool table for students to enjoy as well as comfy couches, a flat-screen TV and study tables and chairs, all compliments of SGA. The Student Union is an ideal meeting and event space for student clubs and organizations, group projects, socializing or even curling up on a couch, completing homework or chatting with friends.

The National Society of Leadership and Success

This non-credit bearing program is designed to recognize and develop the leadership potential of students. It allows participants to discover their own leadership interests and styles while developing specific leadership skills. The program spans over the course of the academic year allowing students to build networks with other student leaders while building a strong leadership component for their résumé. It is a dynamic, high-quality leadership training program, which is a combination of video conferencing with nationally recognized speakers, a leadership training day, goal setting, success networking team meetings and written reflection. After successful completion of the requirements, students are inducted into Sigma Alpha Pi Honor Society.

Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry provides spiritual presence and growth to the entire campus community. Liturgical celebrations are held Sundays and holidays in St. Mary’s Chapel on campus. Schedules are available in the chapel. Services welcome students of all faiths. For more information, contact Patti Sullivan, Coordinator, Auxiliary Services, at 814-725-6277 or
