Merrimack College is an okay school. There isn’t a lot of academic support and it’s difficult to get involved in certain activities. There aren’t many options for classes based on your major. I would say that the time spent at college so far has not been the best experience as a current student.
Overall, I have truly enjoyed my experience her so far. The campus is really nice and I would say 90% of my professors have been really great at teaching course material. They are really helpful when trying to secure at least one internship during your time there and there are a lot of opportunities to work on developing yourself professionally to prepare you for after graduation. They also offer a masters program which if you decide to apply to after graduation, you receive a significant reduction in your tuition cost.
Merrimack is a great, small school. I love how enclosed the campus is, which makes it safe and has a "home" feeling. There is always something to do for every population or students, whether it be the on campus bar for those 21+, bingo, sporting events, etc. It is a very pretty school as well that is continuing to expand.
I really enjoy Merrimack College overall. It is a beautiful campus with many great places closely near by! The professors are always available for helping students one on one and I have benefitted from that greatly! The campus life is incredible there truly is a community feel to it!

My college expierence has made me a better person overall. When I left highschool, I had no idea what I even wanted to do with my life and at the end of the summer, I chose to attend Middlesex Community College. That was the best decision of my life, because it opened up my eyes to a new type of education. I took several classes in different majors and finally found my niche in Communications. It took me an extra year to graduate with my associates, but along the way I made a ton of friends and got to participate in several school activities. I was never like that in highschool. I was always the person who hated school, and wasn't involved. I thank Middlesex for allowing me to continue my education and help me appreciate the value of it. I now attend Merrimack College in North Andover, and I am still getting used to it. Its hard going from a city campus to one that is set in the middle of a town, but I make do. I have joined a sorority and I am looking to join the Spanish club. I want to be extraoridinary.
We are a small catholic college that prides itself with small class sizes and quality education. All staff are there to help you succeed, not only during your time at Merrimack, but in your life beyond it as well. Everyone is welcoming and friendly and wants to see you achieve your goals.
In my opinion, I believe the "worst thing" about my school is our budget when it comes to outside activites. If Merrimack wanted to have a big concert, it could take a long for all of us to enjoy a huge concert featuring a big artist just because we don't have a huge budget in our club/organization committee.
THe kind of person that is looking for a small religious school enviroment. If your not looking for large classes then Merrimack is your school. Everyone is friendly, and the professors are awesome. You will always have lasting friends:)
my classmates were very layed back and easying going . aslo they know how to have fun and get there work done.
The type of person that should attend this school, is one that likes to be in rural areas. There's really not much going on and everything is all the same. So a person that does not like change would be a perfect fit for this school.
Merrimack College is known for its great academic programs as well as its close community and location to Boston.
I love Merrimack. There is so much to enjoy. The campus is beautiful, the teachers (for the most part) are fair and require hard work and dedication. The students enrolled are proud to be so. The school itself is relatively small, which results in smaller class sizes. The proximity to my home seals the deal.
Financial aid office is not very helpful
Merrimack College is a Catholic school which I find unique becuase they require the students to take two religion courses during their time at Merrimack. I think that by choosing from a variety of religion courses to take and taking those classes truly shows a new and different side to viewing life for the student. Merrimack also allows students to subsitute a class with an internship which is unique because not only is it accredited but it allows the student to further learn and explore a potential career of their choice.
Knew everything I needed to know.
I by far cannot begin to mention all of the amazing and unforgettable friends I have made at school. Most of my friends only have three or four close friends where as I have a whole group. At Merrimack College, it is easy to find like-minded individuals and the friendships you make here are worth every penny you spend to attend this college.
Wonderful school, excellent faculty but my parent can not pay all the tuition with all the merit scholarship , financial aid award and the loans I still have to pay over thirty thousand per year ,am look for help to be able to complete my electric eng. course thanks
