All about Mercyhurst’s Chris Streibich


Bella Lee, Staff writer

Over recent times at Mercyhurst, there have been many beloved staff members and students who have left a profound impact upon their departures.
However, there’s one other person who has succeeded in projecting this for the six years that he’s been there, and that’s none other than Chris Streibich.
Chris’ journey at Mercyhurst began in August 2017 and will come to an end next month.
In 2021, he received his B.A. in Accounting and will receive his M.S. in Data Science in May 2023.
Over the course of his time at Mercyhurst, Chris has served in a variety of leadership roles, including as the Vice President of AIM for Friends this year and a Laker Leader during the 2020-2021 school year.
It goes without saying that Chris was heavily involved on campus. He thoroughly enjoyed every Homecoming weekend, Hurst Day and SpringFest that occurred during his time, and he could often be found at MAC/SAC events and athletic games.
You can find his countless selfies on Facebook and Instagram, and the chances are very high that you have been in a photo of his at least once.
However, with all that he has done on campus, the place he will certainly be missed the most at is at the Stone. I can easily say that Chris is the king of Stone Wednesday. Chris has, without fail, attended every Stone Wednesday that has occurred over the past four years.
If you have been to even just one Stone Wednesday, you are guaranteed to find him among the crowd, surrounded by friends and fellow Mercyhurst students who are enjoying his company.
His presence is so strongly known at the Stone that he has won the gift card for the Cornerstone three years in a row for the Senior Date Auction.
If one thing is going to feel drastically different after he leaves Mercyhurst, it will certainly be his presence at the Stone.
Chris has been around for all four years of my time here at Mercyhurst.
He was a junior when I was a freshman and I automatically felt like he helped welcome me to the community with open arms.
He always has a smile on his face and can cheer up just about anybody, regardless of what mood they are feeling beforehand.
He is such an influential person, working hard to help others and making a great name out of organizations on campus such as AIM.
Chris is, without a doubt, a friend to everyone who comes across him. Everyone deserves a Chris in their life, and we are so fortunate that we have been able to have one.
Everyone who knows Chris only says nice things about him.
Mercyhurst will miss you greatly Chris, but we look forward to seeing what you will do in the future!
