What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercer University is a very welcoming place that provides opportunities for students that they would not find anywhere else. Their unique programs such as Mercer on Mission and the Great Books Program provide students with a chance to grow and apply their skills to their uttermost potential. They are overall one of the best places to be due to the numerous things they can offer from academics to extracurriculars.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Another door held open; a smile on the face of students and an Einstein’s coffee and bagel in hand; President Underwood walking his adorable, constant licking dog, Cricket. All of these are sites that you are more than likely to see every day if you attend Mercer University. They are all constant reminders that you are not at some other institution, but that you are among about 8,000 Mercerians. Now I am not going to lie to you and say that “Mercer is the best school any student could possibly attend!” I know that there are other institutions around the nation that have much higher pedigrees and deservedly so. What I will attest to however, is that Mercer is certainly unlike any other university you will find. One of the things that set Mercer apart from many of the other colleges I had considered was the out of classroom opportunities they presented for their students. For example, Mercer is very proud of the Mercer On Mission program (MOM) which allows groups of students to visit other countries and see firsthand the challenges that the natives face. With the MOM program, students gain experience of applying what they learned in the classroom and labs into real life situations. Mercer also offers their students chances to conduct research with a plethora of esteemed professors and learn valuable skills and techniques. These types of opportunities really make attendants feel like they are getting the best bang for their buck. Another valuable trait of Mercer is that it is a private university. This means that the class sizes are small which allows students and professors to truly connect and helps students learn more efficiently compared to being in class with 100 other question-bearing students. Campus life always seems to be buzzing with energy. There are always some sort of interactive events being held on Cruz Plaza, each of which creates a sense of togetherness with all the students. The setup of the campus itself is quite aesthetically pleasing and will continue to improve with the continuous construction of new buildings going on. However, the one drawback I will say is that much of the campus is up hill, but hey, at least you will not have to worry about the freshman fifteen. Overall, I would say that Mercer is a well constructed school. Their system has produced many impressive alumni and created cherished memories for thousands. Everyone should take Mercer into consideration when they are on their search for their next educational home. Sure you may feel like there are other universities which would be a better fit. To tell you the truth, so did I; but I gave it a chance, and that small bit of open mindedness helped me find the place I can call home for the next four years of my life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercer is a wonderful school. I have highly qualified and experienced professors, most who are close to clinical practice, and feel I can always contact my professors. Our reputation in the Atlanta area is second to none. I always feel safe on the campus and I know the education I am receiving is going to be exceptional. I am so grateful for Mercer. I also love their Christian foundation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a huge fan of Mercer University. The school itself is beautiful, wonderfully maintained, and provides a great educational opportunity. It has relatively small class sizes, as well as a reasonably (not-too-big) sized campus, that feels perfect for someone who doesn't feel super comfortable with hundreds of people everywhere you go.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercer University is a magnificent school in the heart of Macon, GA. Known for its major role in community service, Mercer University strives to change the lives of as many people as they can. It is filled with hard-working students that not only work to meet their goals, but work to help others meet their goals as well. Mercer is home to the most compassionate and welcoming group of people that are always ready to lend a helping hand when needed. There are also , a plethora of opportunities given at this school to grow and expand in the career you decide to pursue. This school provides a safe and healthy environment for not only its students, but the Macon community as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercer University is a small and wholehearted private school in central Georgia. The campus is easily navigatable and has its fair share of amazing and horrific professors. Greek life involvement is common, but not nearly as important as at other larger schools in the south. A week at Mercer is typically an enjoyable experience filled with interactive classes, a variety of clubs, and D1 sporting events. However, I find that Mercer lacks the most in its weekend appeal. The majority of the student population will vacate the campus to go to other towns on the weekend because often there is very little to do in Macon on or campus between Friday and Sunday. Because of the lack of a "college town" feel in Macon, there are a high number of students that leave Mercer for more social schools like UG Athens. None-the-less, Mercer continously works hard to cater to the needs of its students and fix what they can fix. Go bears!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercer University is a pretty good school. The class sizes are relatively small and are able to accommodate all the students that need a certain class that pertains to their major or they need for a general credit. The food is sub-par, but the lower rating has more to do with the consistency in the types of food and what they cook rather than the taste of the food itself. The housing is pretty good overall. There are activities to join on campus, but some times it seems that there is not enough or rather that they don't meet enough or have enough events to get involved in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Mercer University. If a small/medium class sizes where you have the potential to get to know your professors on a personal level Mercer is the place to be. Faculty and staff are passionate about what they do. There is always some event happening on campus. But take a tour and experience for yourself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm a current freshman at Mercer and the school itself is pretty good. The major complaints from students are the food hours, as everything closes on campus at 8 pm, the library hours, and parking. The academics are the best part of Mercer because of the amount of major offerings we have. Macon, the surrounding town, is by far the worst part of the University. There is nothing to do and most of the town is very poor and run down. We don't go out past dark for fear of something bad happening.
