Gwynedd Mercy University Reviews

I chose to attend Gwynedd Mercy University because of the small campus and classroom size. Since the classroom sizes are small, you can connect more with your professors and peers. I've lived in the Residence Halls the past four years, and I have seen constant improvement in ResLife to make my stay, and the other residents' stay, here the best experience possible. There are a ton of ways to become involved on campus, such as the Student Activities Committee, Student Government Association, Residence Hall Association, and Intramurals. There is usually always something going on on campus that you can attend and participate in, which is a great way to be involved and meet new people.

I am currently a sophomore who lives on campus. Although I thought about transferring last year I am very happy that I did not. Switching my major to our new Occupational Therapy program is what really made me stay. However, there are many pros besides my major. All of the professors here are great, the campus is beautiful, and there are many clubs that one could get involved in. I am in the Voices of Gwynedd which is an awesome environment for newbies that want to sing. ResLife is great, they are always offering cheap/free opportunities to participate in such as trips to aquariums, New York, Color Me Mine parties etc. Also, since we are a small university, it is very easy to get help from financial aid, tutoring, and our career resources center. Finally, in my opinion, we are a VERY safe campus. The only complaints I would have is there are not many parties here and there are so many cliques that it sometimes makes it difficult to socialize.
Gwynedd Mercy University has provided me a safe and nurturing environment to grow in my academic, professional, and personal life. When searching for schools to attend, I wasn't sure exactly what I was looking for other than a small school with a good nursing program. GMercyU has given me that and so much more. Through Gwynedd, I have become involved in many different organizations and offices on campus. I have been able to build my resume and skills for my future profession. The professors here at Gwynedd Mercy University have provided me with motivation and the support I needed to succeed in my academics. Something that I love about Gwynedd is that there are so many people to go to that are willing to help and listen. I can honestly say that at GMercyU I feel at home.
