The Merciad is the student newspaper at Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pennsylvania. The paper was founded in 1929. In 2007 the newspaper’s slogan became “If you don’t want it printed…don’t let it happen," a slogan that is the same as that of the Aspen Daily News, however, the slogan was removed by Editor-in-Chief Mathew Anderson and the paper's staff in 2013 after being deemed unprofessional. It is a free broadsheet-sized newspaper published every Wednesday while classes are in session, with the exception of the week before finals. The newspaper is the recipient of a "Best of Show" award presented February 2008, by the Associated Collegiate Press.
