I think that Mercer seems like a good school for me. While with the small student body, there can be a lack of diversity, the small classes provide, at least for me, an introvert, a feeling of comfortability that makes it easier to bond with my professors and peers.
A great citadel of learning, where one can grow academically and become a better solution provider to the world. There are a lot of new opportunities, and students have access to the right tools for a rewarding academic experience. Besides, the academic environment is second to none, with state-of-the-art facilities, which make learning possible and affordable.
I absolutley love Mercer. I found it by accident, but I am so glad that I did! There is always something to do and ways to get involved. I have heard many complaints about the food, but I have never had a problem except for a few times when I couldn't find any late night options for food. However, the university is slowly working to improve that. Overall, it's an amazing academic enviornment. The teachers and faculty are commited to student success and are almost always available to answer question and lend a helping hand. Another bonus is that everything is so close together. You can walk literally anywhere on campus in about 10 minutes.
I knew Mercer was the university for me when I experienced its welcoming, uncompetitive atmosphere the moment I set foot on campus. Mercer’s intimate and driven community has allowed me to form lasting relationships with peers and professors while providing immeasurable opportunities, such as in research and service. I was drawn to Mercer’s service-oriented focus and desire to make meaningful and long-lasting impacts in the lives of those in need as I hope to spend my life doing this very thing as a rural primary care physician. I have not been disappointed as service opportunities abroad, such as Mercer on Mission, and in the local Macon-Bibb region, such as Service Saturdays, are available throughout the semester to anyone seeking to help others. When I first started college, I was certain that none of my professors would want to be bothered by me or form relationships with their students. Thankfully, I was wrong! All of my professors have been open to questions and student interaction. They all learned my name by about the second week of class, especially thanks to the small class sizes and personal learning environment, and look forward to talking to students about their field(s) of interest. While Mercer students are academically driven, there is not a strong, overbearing sense of competition but rather that of community. Anyone seeking a university that offers rigorous academics in an intimate learning environment with research, study abroad, athletic and service opportunities should consider Mercer!

I would tell myself to buckle down and make sure I get good grades. I would also, tell myself to not take the grant money for granted because, if I lose the grant, college is very expensive. Moreover, I would let myself know that although college is hard do not give up I can do anything I put my mind to.
Friendly, hardworkers whoknow when to work and when to party.
Small, welcoming, open-minded and focused on academics.
People who don't want to find out more about themselves and find a direction for their lives.
Small class sizes, professors' availability, and opportunities to be involved on campus and in the community are Mercer's greatest assets. These are the things I looked for when applying for school.
Someone that enjoys small class sizes, and is not looking for crazy parties. We party here with the fraternities and we also go downtown, but it isn't like at the large universities. You have to be willing to work because the classes here are harder, but its worth it.
The engineering program here is amazing. There are many ways to excell in the program. The campus itself if beautiful, you can walk everywhere you need to go, the weather is pretty great here as well.
Small private school, known for education, proximity to macon, great faculty, small campus, interconnected student body. Awesome athletics, host the Atlantic Sun Conference
Small classes, personalized attention, division one sports.
Before I came to Mercer University, I wish I had known that it would be so hard to get financial aid as a college freshman for my sophmore year. It was easier to receive scholarships when I was still a highschool senior, but now it seems as if there's no financial aid left for me. Plus, Mercer, being a private school, has a very expensive tutition which is hard for my single-parent family income to afford.
the most frustrating about the school for the most part is the tuition of the school which is over 40,000 dollars which in this economy is very taxing.
