We Asked Students, What's your overall opinion of this school?

Bailey

Mount mercy is the best! The classes are small, the biggest class I have is maybe 50 students, but the student to professor ratio is 13:1. The professors a almost always accessible, whether its office hours or email. There is free tutoring offered 7 days a week. The food is better than most places. And there is always something to do on campus! Sports, improv, trivia nights, bingo, and more!

i don't think Mount Mercy is a bad school. There are some things that i would change especially when it comes to the needs or getting the attention of commuters. When it comes to the food, it's not always bad but it could be a lot better. Burgers and fries everyday is a no go.

Mount Mercy University is a wonderful, colorful and intellectual college to be at. Students and Staff are always friendly and willing to help out anyone who asks. I was a little afraid to go to a private college so well known but they have welcomed me with open arms. Showing me that I can achieve anything through hard work and a little fun.

I love the close-knit community and focus on the importance of academics and service. I enjoyed the portal class as a way for incoming students to get to know campus and the services offered here. It is a very nice campus and you can always find a helping hand when you need it

Sam

Mont Mercy is a great small school, the size may get in the way sometimes but the professors here are great, never had any better than here, they are really invested in making sure there students have a good outcome as long as they put in the work. Love campus area as well.

Gabriela

Decent sized university with great faculty-student interactions. Courses push students out of their comfort zones and expect them to succeed and have high achievements. The university also provides free support for students such as counseling, gym, etc! 10/10 would recommend!

I think MMU is a very good and local school for any one who love on campus life. There's something for everyone there and it's very easy to work your way around campus. The surroundings are great and there's always something to do on and off campus. The staff are always ready and willing to help with anything you might need help with.

Emma

I like Mount Mercy. The professors go out of their to help students. The job assistance/placement services could be more proactive in helping students obtain internships and post graduation placement. The adminstration is very supportive in making sure the students have a great experience on-campus.

Tessa

I enjoy attending Mount Mercy University because of the small class sizes. The size of classes makes it easy to communicate with teachers and to express any confusion about assignments. I also enjoy the work study program. While it may not pay the best, it is accessible. For a a student with a busy schedule, it's nice working in the cafeteria because it's on campus. The work is pretty easy and they schedule you around classes with ease. With all the workers they have on hand, you get to meet a lot of other students and can connect while working. Another great thing about MMU is the tunnels. This is my first year here at school and with Iowa winter it was really great not to have to bundle up to get to class. You could wear shorts all winter if you wanted to! One of the bad things however is the cafe. While they offer a lot of options, they only have hot food at certain times. If you have a class during lunch, you'll never get a hot lunch. They also claim to have a wide variety of options, which they do, but not every meal. It's more like each meal has a menu plan and only the meals have a variety. That is to say your lunch may be all American food and dinner might be all "Mexican". That said, Mount Mercy is very inclusive of other cultures since there are so many international students. Although it is a Catholic school, they don't push their religion on you. They understand not everyone attending is Catholic and while they have masses, attending is not mandatory.

Mount Mercy university is not only a great school for nursing and business, it is also a great school for science majors. Most science majors are pre-professional science majors who major in biology or biochemistry. All of the science department advisors and professors always put the students first. All science professors encourage students to come in during their office hours, and most have an open door policy where students and pop in any time without making an appointment as long as their door is open. MMU is also a small school so the class sizes are usually very small which allows students to build a better relationship with their professors and their peers. MMU is a great place for students who are interested in grad school or professional programs, or if they have no idea what they want to do because the professors are always there for the students and do everything they can to get students to reach their goals.

I know it's hard to compete with bigger, federally funded schools, but I was disappointed with Mount Mercy at first, but they do their best. You are primarily there to get an education and that has the most importance. Professors are very accessible and you get a lot of one on one interactions with your faculty, which you usually do not get at bigger schools. You can really tell professors here want you to succeed and will give you every opportunity to do so, for the most part. If you're looking for a good education, Mount Mercy University is a good place to go, but I would not get your hopes up about the extra amenities that come with it.

Mount Mercy makes me feel at home and safe. When looking for a college I wanted to find a college that I felt safe and comfortable in. Mount Mercy's staff and facility made me feel welcomed and I felt like I belonged. The staff are very supportive and willing to help. Mount Mercy is a wonderful college to attend and has great academics and athletics.
