|Mercyhurst College turns Mercyhurst University: January 25, 2012|
Mercyhurst will remain a primarily traditional 4-year institution with around 3000 students, but grow it's associate and graduate programs. It will focus on the founding principles set forth by the Sisters of Mercy and maintain it's Catholic tradition.
"I think it's really cool that we're staying the same, we're going to be a small university, we're going to keep the traditions and the principles that Mercyhurst is based on, because that's the institution we fell in love with. And 'university' is only going to enhance that." Said Mercyhurst Junior, Joe Pudlick.
