Ribbon cut on new Mercyhurst North East student union

Local News

The ribbon is cut on the new student union in Mercyhurst North East’s campus.  The unveiling revealed a great place for students to study or just hang out in between classes.  

The space offers games for students to de-stress, like mini-golf.  The designer of the space, Keyman Asefi, says it’s exactly what he envisioned.  “This space is very unique because it accommodates introverts and extroverts. If you’re an introvert, you can use study pods and be alone. If you’re an extrovert, you can hang out with your friends on this platform.”

And, the students are responding with enthusiasm.  “I love it,” says Junior Morgan Barksdale, “I think it’s a great place to just hang out and study.”

Those we spoke to today say the space is exactly what the campus needed.
