Merrimack’s campus has changed quite a bit since 1947! Use the sliders on each image to reveal the changes from then to now at Merrimack!
Back in 1960, Merrimack was still mostly empty. Fast forward to 2020, and our campus Merrimack looks much different.
There’s nothing like that feeling of school pride as we sport the blue and gold to cheer on our Warrior athletes.
SAKOWICH CAMPUS CENTER
From its humble beginnings as a smaller student union – our Sakowich Campus Center today is truly the hub of Merrimack. From meals in Sparky’s and late night bites from the Warrior’s Den to focusing on your health and wellness in our Fitness & Recreation Center or catching up with friends at Augie’s Pub– the Sak has it all.
Biology labs have come a long way, from microscopes to high tech tools like our Health Sciences anatomy labs.
IN THE CLASSROOM
Merrimack has always known the value of hands-on learning. In the 1950s, one of the most sought after skills was typing. Today, students can access real-time stock market data and learn how to be financial experts in the Mucci Capital Markets Lab.
COLLEGIATE CHURCH OF CHRIST
The Collegiate Church of Christ the Teacher holds our Mass of the Holy Spirit that kicks off each new academic year as well as the Baccalaureate Mass that brings together all of the graduating seniors for one final blessing prior to graduation.
VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS
The first extracurricular activity documented at Merrimack was a Glee Club. Today students have many opportunities to participate in music, art, theatrical performance and dance, with many organizations performing in the 600-seat Rogers Center for the Arts.
Where there once was an empty field now stands an impressive entrance to campus. The Arcidi Center opened in 2018 and is home to the admission welcome center and O’Brien Center for Career Development.
