Calling for Alumni Stories!

We invite alumni to submit a brief (250-500 word) personal story of where they have been, the advice they would give their younger self and a little bit about their Mercy University experience. Our hope is to showcase the journey after Mercy for alumni in different fields and at varied stages of their lives.

Stories can be sent to Each submission will be reviewed and considered for our website and upcoming alumni publications. Every submission will receive a gift as a token of our appreciation.
