Merced College President Chris Vitelli shares message with students

I have been closely monitoring the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak and understand the fear and uncertainty that this health crisis has created for many of us. Even though we are in the midst of what is possibly the most chaotic and disruptive event in our lifetimes, I find myself thankful for the countless acts of kindness and compassion seen throughout our campus community. The overwhelming sense of "team" our Merced College Family has demonstrated this past week is something of which we should all be proud. I keep reminding everyone--including myself--that there is not a "right" or "wrong" answer to address this pandemic and no one has the perfect solution. This is a novel virus and we are learning new information hour-by-hour. Through it all, however, we have remained steadfast in seeking the most responsible solutions for our students, faculty and community. Read More

Merced College announces coaches for new soccer programPage Title

As a kid growing up in Doncaster, England, soccer was less of a sport and more of a way of life for Ian Stapleton. From the time he was seven years old, the new Merced College men's soccer coach said his free time was spent on some form of pitch or another. "It's not like in the (United) States," Stapleton said. "We just played soccer all the time. We'd just pull off our jerseys and they'd be the goal posts. All through Saturday and Sunday, me and my mates would just play." Read More
