Misericordia University recently hosted rising high school juniors and seniors on campus for a series of seven Career Exploration Camps in order to provide them an opportunity to experience and learn more about exciting professions and residential life on a college campus.

The Career Exploration Camps at Misericordia University are a popular destination for students who want to explore both college campus life and a potential career. The university offers academic camps in biology, chemistry-biochemistry sciences, communications and media, literature, nursing, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology. Space is limited in each camp and registration is necessary.

The Literature Camp for rising high school juniors and seniors provides an opportunity for students who have a love for stories, poems, novels, and the stage to work with Misericordia faculty and students in a variety of workshop settings, including creative writing, literary adaptation, literature and pop culture, and literature in the multi-media age. The camp explores literature from around the world, including American, multi-ethnic and English literature, and looks at its use in popular culture. For more information or to register for the 2015 camp, please Dr. Steinberger at (570) 674-6423 or at rsteinbe@
