Howdy, howdy folks. My name is Adam Myers. I'm a Junior Mass Communication major. And you know what? Let's join me on a tour here on campus.
Hey, everybody! We're at the library here at Misericordia University. This library is great. Tons of students love to use it. Just a few quick facts about the library, this library is open Sunday through Thursday until midnight. So you have plenty of time to get in here and study. We also have librarians who are gonna assist you depending on major. So each major has their own librarian and their liaison to help them find research materials and help you also with that research. We also have nine study rooms in here, eight of those are equipped with whiteboards and touchscreens. On the first floor, we have multimedia room with PC screen, all that good stuff. And then last but not least, is also kind of learning commons for the whole campus. It's located in the center of campus. So it's, you know, easy access no matter where you're living out here and within our residence halls.
Okay, so this is Anderson center. Anderson Center is where we have a lot of our athletic opportunities here on campus for non athlete regular people. So we have upstairs our weight room and gym, which has machines such as treadmills and bars that you can lift in. Down here, we have our basketball court and our indoor track. All of this is available to use, if there's no sports teams practicing or there's any games. Also where we have relay for life, basketball practices, and games, as well as volleyball. If you go up the staircase, we have an aerobics studio where you can practice it whenever you feel like it. There's also a zumba, dance club, and dance team that practice there as well. There's a pool available during open swim hours, and there's a health and wellness center that you can go to at your convenience, if you're feeling sick, or if you need to get any test completed.
Alright, so behind me we have McHale Hall. So at Misericordia, you are required to live on campus for two years, unless you're a commuter student. And one of the options for first year students to get placed is McHale Hall. McHale Hall is divided by wing, so the females are on one side, and the males are on the other. And then each wing also has their own resident assistant also known as an RA. Um, in between the wings are lounges that have vending machines, a ping pong table, open to any of the students who live in that residence hall. We also have free laundry and in this building there probably like three or four laundry; washers and dryers on each floor for the students to use. And then also on the bottom floor we have our Fireside Lounge, which is a very popular place for students to hang out. There's a kitchen, a ping pong table, TV, a fireplace and it's a great place for watching the Super Bowl or watching The Bachelor, any big event that's going on.
Hi guys, this is a room in Alumni. This is a one possible way to set it up. You can either have them on the ground like this, fully elevated, or you can even possibly bunk those beds as well. Every room has a sink in it as well as it comes with a micro fridge as well. So it's not something you have to right here, bring on your own.
Down here at the bottom of Alumni, there's a lot of opportunities here for students. We have the tutoring center, which is available for students who need a little bit extra help in class, that's free, you get to sign up online. Choose what times work best for you, and choose a subject that you can be tutored in. You can also offer to be a tutor down here to make a little bit of extra cash here on campus. The Writing Center is another great thing that we have here, bring a paper down, and we'll have peer tutors sit in with you and review your entire paper so that you have a chance to have somebody revise and review everything that you've already done. Besides these two things that we have. We also have the cap center right across the hallway, which is a free counseling service for all students on campus. All of these options are available and more information is also available online.
Hi again. Alright, so behind me we have our new science building, it's under construction. It's been very busy all semester so it's gonna be ready by fall 2020 and I'm very excited to see it.
Welcome to Insalaco Hall. Here in Insalaco Hall, you have most of you classes for business, along with the art gallery, and Starbucks. Around here, there's also a great place to study on the top floor. Come in here and get some work done in one of our computer labs and a printer as well. So there's plenty of space to get work done.
Hi, welcome to our Insalaco Center for Career Development. In here, there's a lot of things for students to prepare them for graduating college and finding a job. We have opportunities for networking, internships, interviews, create LinkedIn profile, cover letters, resume, everything, anything that will prepare you for the real world. Including our GPP program, which is a program that you could join as a first year student and then after you attend each workshop every semester, you will be guaranteed an internship after graduation, if you do not get a job after six months.

One thing I love doing on campus is being an orientation coordinator. Upon arriving as a freshman, you have to choose one of the five days of orientation. Those are June and July. You can do that by going on the MyMU portal and picking a day. And if you have any questions, contact your admissions counselor.
Alrighty, welcome to our campus store. As you can see, we have a plethora of Misericordia apparel. You can buy anything such as hoodies, t-shirts, sweat pants, tank tops, stuff for your mom, stuff for your dad's, stuff for babies, even. It's crazy out here. It's not just clothing, though we also do offer the academic needs; so pens, pencils, notebooks, folders, binders. You can even rent your books for your classes here, and buy them if you want to. Other than that we do have a lot of self care stuff. There's everything in the store. It's crazy. We have cough drops. We have shampoo. We have like everything, body wash, tide pods, dry detergent, like anything like that. A whole bunch of stuff all in one place. Now that's a good deal.
So my favorite memory of Misericordia is during the spring, we have a campus wide scavenger hunt. The students form into different groups and then they do a whole bunch of fun activities all around campus. And then we come together and we always choose a winner and then the winner gets a cash prize. So it's really fun. Great way to meet people get out of your room and just explore the campus.
