I'm going into my junior year at Mercyhurst and I love it. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I'm a forensic anthropology major/history minor and also involved in the marching/pep band, the LGBT+ club, the fencing club, the forensic science club, and the dance department. The atmosphere on campus is great.
