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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a current freshman at Mercer University. Students can individually interact & get to know their professors well since Mercer has a tight-knit community. We have various clubs and organizations for everyone: Greek life, athletics, student council, choir, and other social groups. The school is known for its rigorous engineering and medicine programs in the country. Beautiful foliage and trees adorn the campus. I love my school. Go Bears!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a good school. The class sizes are smaller than most schools so you’re able to connect with your teachers more. It could use some work, for example more eating options on campus and some dorms could really use some renovations, but overall it’s a good school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have attended the school for two years. I realized the social atmosphere was not for me, mainly because I didn't join a sorority and felt my friend groups were dwindling. The university itself is great, and the academics are excellent, but it is small and in a sketchy side of Macon. I think you have to absolutely love the school and get very involved to enjoy living on campus. Also, the food and housing options are okay. Too pricey in my opinion.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wonderful. Beautiful. Welcoming. Advanced. Home. This school is breathtaking and has wonderful opportunities around every corner. All students seem to be at least involved in one or two clubs. The school is huge on volunteer work, which is awesome. Every student I have talked to says classes are rigorous but it is easy to get with your professors and help is everywhere on campus! This university is top notch! Wonderful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Mercer University is a GREAT school! It has a wonderful atmosphere that is felt instantly by anyone who steps on Mercer's beautiful campus. When I first visited Mercer in eleventh grade, I felt an instant connection to the students and professors, and I immediately knew that this was the school for me. One of Mercer's mottos is, "everyone majors in changing the world". I truly believe that Mercer lives up to that motto, and is completely committed to making sure that every student changes the world in their own special way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I LOVED Mercer University! I still do! I am so blessed to have attended a school where intellectual and cultural diversity are celebrated and expressed. All of the teachers were committed to encouraging, educating, and teaching their students. The student body were very cohesive and everyone was always courteous to each other, it was like we all understood what each other was going through. There were also plenty of extracurricular opportunities to further supplement student learning experience. Of course the school has flaws, for fallible human beings are running it, but everyone from the president to the janitors had good and genuine hearts that were committed to encouraging one another.
