The college helped shaped my goal and which direction I wanted to choose. The campuses have a diversity of students, awesome professors and advisors. I chose this college to also further my education when I graduated as its partnered with 5 bachelor degree programs. So students who can't commute far can stay close by or even do online with the different schools of choice. Awesome school. I recommended it as well to my daughter who took college courses while in highschool. This experience helps kids and prepare and shape them for what to expect once they enter.

My experience at Mercer County Community College was great. One of my favorite aspects of Mercer is the extremely diverse student body that drives the creative side of the college. People from all walks of life--young, old, European, Asian, Middle Eastern, etc--attend this college. This melting pot of cultures builds cultural awareness among students, and discourages cultural relativism.

Moreover, I particularly appreciate the willingness, of all the professors I have had at Mercer, to meet with students to address concerns, pose questions, and provide guidance on a variety of matters. This aspect of Mercer is fantastic since students and faculty can build bonds and in turn promote mutual learning.

As well as, Mercer's administration encourages student participation in on- and off-campus activities. I myself took advantage of the many avenues students can take to become involved in campus activities--I founded a political action club.
Community College is a school in which people come and go and do not try and be there when they do not have to be because everyone has jobs and things to do. I really enjoyed my classes because overall I had very good professors. I did find it hard at times to communicate and make friends just because there are not many ways that people try to get involved, but it was possible. Overall I think that my three years here have been a good stepping stone preparing me for my future school. I recommened it anyone who does not know what they want to major in, trying to save money, or just not ready to leave home yet.
