Mercyhurst’s Equestrian team has been on the mission of attracting more members.
Currently the team is made up of sophomore Intelligence and Business Marketing major Rachel Betzner and sophomore Exercise Science and Pre-Physical Therapy major Molly Card. They have been on the search of bringing new members after two people quit the team.
“Nobody knows about us and we’ve been trying to get our name out there,” said Betzner. She recently created a website and Facebook page to promote the club.
Few things say “family togetherness” like sitting down to a big spaghetti dinner.
The Mercyhurst Social Work department will host a Hurst Family Spaghetti Dinner on Sunday, Dec. 7, at Mercyhurst Preparatory School.
Every year, senior Social Work majors develop a project, depending on the students’ particular interests. This year, the class, which consists of nine seniors, decided to host the Family Spaghetti Dinner in an effort to promote family togetherness. The proceeds from the dinner will go to help families in need in the Erie area.

This past Tuesday, Nov. 4, junior Art Therapy major Jena Skelton did just that as she organized an art gallery to showcase the creative works of patients she worked with during her time as an intern and employee at The Regional Cancer Center, Erie.
At Mercyhurst University, the Leadership Certification program thrives to build leaders on campus and better develop their skills which they can carry beyond the gates.
By getting students involved through community service as well as through school clubs and organizations, students can obtain skills that help them after they graduate.
Leadership and outreach coordinator Kristy Jamison is in charge of the program which she has restructured.
