Welcome to Mercy College!

Posted by Dr. Steven D. Langdon on Sep 8, 2016 12:02:54 PM

Mercy College family, 
As we head back to school to start a new Fall semester and a new academic year, I would like to extend a special welcome to our new and returning students to campus.

We hope that as you embark on your academic year that you take a few moments to learn about or reflect on the College history and the mission of the Sisters of Mercy.  Their mission is the foundation of the College as we offer education in health care focused professional programs, blended on a foundation of a general education core of liberal arts and science (LAS), and mission fulfillment (our Core Values).  I hope that you grow to realize the significant role integrating LAS and mission through service learning and leadership has on your professional studies and career.

both of whom are Mercy College students, to the Fall semester with a few snacks.

I would also like to recognize the support that you have through various departments and employees around campus as you approach the rigors of your school work mixed with life’s obligations.  As the College grows and through the faculty and staff, our intention is to provide the support necessary to help students succeed. 

In the words of Winston Churchill: "Have no fear of the future. Let us go forward into its mysteries, tear away the veils which hide it from our eyes, and move onward with confidence and courage."

Have a great semester!

Dr. Steven D. Langdon
