I fondly look back on the four years I spent at the then, Gwynedd-Mercy College. I met wonderful friends, my future husband and have developed friendships with professors that I have maintained since graduating back in 2012. The one main negative I can say about Gwynedd, was their lack of student activities for those who lived on campus. However, I hear they are making a real effort to change this and have provided more options for students to have a fulfilling college experience. Every school has flaws, but the overall camaraderie, and the majority of awesome professors really made this school a place I am proud to have been apart of.
Review Gwynedd Mercy University
As a Nursing Student at GMU, I must say it
has been one of the most difficult journey in my life. GMU prepare you for all aspects of the journey. However, you'll just have to follow the blueprint precisely in place for your major.
I was enrolled into a program that was discontinued. GMU wasn't organized with exiting students that we're hanging on. They forced them to make a decision with moving on to the bachelors program or by failing them out of the discontinued program. GMU should of decided whether they'll have a program for the long haul before accepting students into a program that wasn't there to stay. I felt like a trial and error run for the school while completing this program. Meanwhile this is my life GMU gambled with.
Great school and education system. Georgia Gwinnett College is a growing school that gives you the experience of university life without the hefty price tag. The students here are very diverse which helps to showcase many different cultures around campus. New students will find the campus to fit them if they prefer smaller classrooms and smaller walks to classes, many campus events, an assortment of clubs, and school that cares about them.
