What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love being at Mercyhurst! It is like a home away from home, and everyone here is super friendly. There are so many opportunities to get involved and there are plenty of clubs to join. The class sizes are small in comparison to bigger schools, and professors go out of their way to make themselves accessible to their students. Furthermore, the campus is not far from Peach Street, which has a wide variety of shopping centers and restaurants that students might want or need, and can be accessed by public transportation. Lastly, Mercyhurst is a safe campus, and there are many options for students to seek help if they need it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercyhurst feels like home. Everyone there seems happy to be there all of the time. Campus always feel very safe and has a very homely feel to it. Being a small college provides for a very tight knit community of people. Everyone is always extremely willing to help in any way that they can. I could not have imagined going to college anywhere else.

It is a beautiful campus! The facilities are very accommodating, and modern. The professors are always wanting to see us succeed, and really push us to do our best. They have a lot of fun activities for us frequently as well!!! They have great on campus resources for us to use in our academics also.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercyhurst University is very small but in my opinion that’s good you are able to connect with more people and the professors are more focused on you. There are many clubs that are offered to get everyone the opportunity to get involved. The sports bring a lot of people together as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Average education for a big financial commitment. Every year they tack on new ways to charge the students more money. Even with large scholarships you end up paying more as the years go on. Class sizes are small and it can be very personal with your teachers, they are usually available for after college business advice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercyhurst University is place where professors and other staff members really take the time and go out their way to provide the best education by challenging students to prepare us for our future careers. Although, there could be some improvement in diversifying the campus and being more creative with campus activities, overall, it's a great university to attend. Mercyhurst provides students with a fresh start and builds on that with every class you attend guaranteeing you will be ready not just for challenges that may occur in you're career, but in life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercyhurst University was a school that was introduced to me by my high school councilor. I am currently accepted to be apart of the graduating class of 2023, while majoring in psychology and playing Field Hockey. When I first visited the campus I immediately fell in love with the environment and the vibe that the University gave off. People greet you with friendly faces and the professors are very down to earth and will work one on one with you if you are in need. I highly recommend this school to everyone!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Mercyhurst University is a well-rounded, small community-based college. The education system and professors are incredible and provide one-to-one experiences with each student and are always available to help whenever needed. The professors are also extremely approachable and are very dedicated hard-working individuals. The community at Mercyhurst is very welcoming to every individual. During the semester to build upon the community, there are many events to support other students and to allow for social growth. For instance, we have a D1 hockey team to support for free on the weekends. We also have a vast number of clubs to join to meet new people and to allow for new experiences. Lastly, we have MAC/SAC, a student-based group that organizes and puts on events each weekend for free available to all students. Mercyhurst also has an incredible student government that adheres to the student population’s ideas and desires at the school. Beyond the student government there are many ways to get involved as a student. We have an Ambassador program, where students pledge and begin the process to becoming a tour guide for the school. We also have Laker Leaders. This program is upper-level classman who help freshman transition each year and provide them with the correct information and skills to succeed socially and academically here at Mercyhurst. There are many opportunities for students to get involved on campus. The dinning services on campus provide students many options. There are locations to sit and enjoy a family-based meal with friends and there are places you can grab a quick meal and take it to go. These options allow students to acquire food based on time and desire. We also have a section in our main dining hall, Eagan, called the clean plate. This is one of the two in the country and provides gluten free and allergy free food to the students on campus. Although, it does adhere to those in need of the service, it is available to any student. Lastly, on each holiday they put together special dining experiences for the students that allow students to enjoy the special occasions that occur while they are on campus. A special, not to miss feature on campus is Hurst Day. A tradition where classes are cancelled, and the day begins with a scavenger hunt. The day continues on with blow-ups and themed food tents and ends with a special steak dinner. This tradition is a surprise and remains unannounced and provides students with a break from classes, exams, and projects. Mercyhurst University provides an exceptional education while providing activities and creating a community each day. The university provides the correct services and community for each student to succeed while in college and creates a special place for people to call their home while away at school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall option of Mercyhurst is it is a good school. I would definitely say it is better suited if you are going for intel then anything because that is it’s biggest major. I came to the school because it offered a major you can’t really find at many colleges which is the Fashion Merchandising Program which is also a great major! The campus life is good everyone seems to know everyone because we are a small school. Most people who came to this school came because it didn’t have the Greek Life which to me is a plus because it doesn’t fit what the school is promoting, and I like not having the Greek Life. The food is not the best but its good when you don’t know how to cook haha! Mercyhurst are starting to update housing because I know my friends when they explained their housing it was completely different then Mercyhurst had when I first came. The classroom sizes are good you are able to speak to your professor one on one instead of waiting in a line to meet with them and if you can’t meet them after a class all the professors have scheduled times for office hours. Even if that doesn’t work email them it helps a lot because the professors will check their emails and get back to you by the next day! Events on campus are made more for freshman to have them get to know each other and the older students usually hang out at the apartments which are kind of further from campus so that makes it harder to get them to come to events as well.
