Culinary and Wine Institute

The Mercyhurst North East Culinary and Wine Institute annually hosts two series of dining options open to the public: the International Dining Series in the fall and the Spring Lunch Series. In both series, students in Mercyhurst North East’s culinary arts program design, prepare and serve a meal based on the cuisine of a nationality or geographic region. Reservations are required for meals; please call the reservation line at 814-725-6333.

Cultural Series

As a cultured liberal arts college and a vested member of the North East community, MNE offers a yearly Cultural Series of concerts, lectures and performances. All events are open to the public, students and the college community free of charge.
