Mercer University Reviews
Review Mercer University
The academics at Mercer University are challenging, and individualized. It is very easy to find your passion here and get involved. Mercer is a school focused on service and research that changes the world, thus it is a very active school. Professors are caring and understanding, and class sizes are usually quite small and inviting. Mercer is an excellent university!
Mercer University is a fantastic community environment for undergraduate students. Professors truly care about the individuals in their classrooms and want to see them grow not only academically, but emotionally. Students are able to create a home for themselves. There are tons of organizations students can get involved in and plenty of leadership opportunities. Mercer is also a research institution. Students are able to get in on research projects starting their freshman year. This gives students the opportunity to get experience in their respective fields and prepare themselves for the workforce. The Mercer experience is like no other.
Mercer University is a small school, smaller than you might expect. On average day, walking between your dorm and any of the dining options on campus, you might only see several people on the way. You will always see familiar faces everywhere you go as you learn to know most people on campus. The professors are mostly fantastic, and they are all very accessible. Even in the larger classes, which only consist of maybe 70 people for some of the freshman level classes, the professors are more than happy to talk to you personally at almost any time. The dining options on campus are solid. There's Chick-Fil-A, Panda Express, Which Wich, Einstein Bros Bagels, and of course the cafeteria. I personally have no problem eating at any of them. The dorms are also solid. The new freshman dorm on campus, Legacy Hall, is very nice. The rest are good too, but Plunkett Hall is quite old. Sports are fun, but our only real notable achievement is beating Duke in the NCAA tournament several years ago.
