The 2011-2012 President's Report was different from other years as it marked 10 years of Dr. Kathleen Owens serving as the College's President.
As Dr. Owen's reflected on the past decade, she sat down for an interview, “10 for 10,"— 10 questions for 10 years, which was featured in the publication. We have an exclusive bonus question just for our MERV's Alumni Connection readers!
Next fall, the “Class of 2017” will arrive on campus. By the time they graduate, how will Gwynedd-Mercy College have evolved, and what goals do you have for the future?

Prior to the final beam being placed on what will be the newest academic building on campus, and home to the School of Business and School of Education, students, faculty, staff, alumni, the construction crew and members of the Gwynedd-Mercy College community gathered to sign a permanent part of this innovative structure.
Witnessing the building's progress over the past few months has been very exciting for the College and everyone is looking forward to it opening in 2014!
In the meantime, if you can't stop by campus to check out the building's progress, look at the live new building construction camera here.
Clear skies opened up for Gwynedd-Mercy College’s 26th annual golf tournament held at Manufacturers’ Golf and Country Club. The shamble format produced a lot of low scores and plenty of fun for everyone. While nobody drove home a new Fiat for sinking a hole-in-one, there was a smorgasbord of raffle prizes and giveaways to claim. Gwynedd-Mercy College thanks Manufacturers’ for their hospitality and the hard work of committee members Mark Craney (co-chair), Jay Haenn (co-chair), John Collins CSsR, Regina Lowrie, Helen Nelson, Mia McGlynn and Donna Smyrl.
