In 1924, a group of the Religious Sisters of Mercy from Dublin, Ireland, founded the children's school and adults' night school that developed into present-day Misericordia University. For the site of student living, the sisters selected a small community in northeastern Pennsylvania, known as Dallas. Today, Dallas remains a quaint, rural community, dotted with student housing at Misericordia University, and ideal for the quiet atmosphere that many prefer for long-term study. Though fewer than 40 students enrolled at the school during its early years, Misericordia has spent decades in development and achieved university status in 2007. Today, about 2,300 undergraduate and graduate students reside in Misericordia student housing as they pursue a degree.
With its recently-approved university status, Misericordia now offers bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees, as well as post-master's and post-bachelor's certificates. The institution offers a choice of 30 majors in three academic colleges: the College of Arts and Science, the College of Health Sciences and the College of Professional Studies and Social Sciences. The wealth of options offered at the university extend to student living services, represented by 24 clubs, service organizations and special interest groups.
