Mount Mercy University’s Enactus club placed in the top 12 at the 2016 Enactus United States National Exposition in St. Louis, Missouri, on May 17. This is the highest ranking the team has earned in the 18 years Enactus (formally SIFE) has been at Mount Mercy.
With the April 18 win at regionals in Rogers, Arkansas, Mount Mercy’s Enactus team continues on to the United States National Exposition in St. Louis, Missouri, May 15–17.
Congratulations, team, and bring us home another win!
Enactus provides students with the opportunity to make a difference and to develop leadership skills through learning, practicing and teaching the principles of free enterprise with the motto, “A head for business, A heart for the world.”

Overalls All Over
You can't walk more than a few feet in Hennessey Recreation Center without being reminded of the school's rich sports history. Home to Mount Mercy's basketball team, the hoops hardware in the halls and accolades adorning the walls detail the recent success the Mustangs have experienced. But none of the hard-fought victories, none of the come-from-behind nail-biting wins matter. Not today.
