Mercy College is a great overall school. Great academics, great professors, and a great learning environment. The only problem that I have with the school is that I believe the library is too small and should be expanded. Besides this, Mercy college prepared me for a career in the health and sciences, and as an entrant to a PA program of my choice. Highly recommend Mercy!

Mercy College is an excellent place to attain your Bachelor’s/Associate’s and a well-rounded choice to pursue higher education. With a wide variety of majors to choose from, small class sizes and excellent professors to teach and guide you, there’s not much to look elsewhere for when you attend!
It's an excellent school for groups that are not typical college students. For example I am a college student returning to college after a 15 year sabbatical. This school also offers night classes for those who work or have other responsibilities. Additionally, there is a large veterans returning back to school population, man and women with children, older and regular young adult populations. The school seems to fill any need for a very diverse overall population. Most students also continue to improve their academic and professional skills of master them completely. Mercy provides an excellent environment for student success of all kind. I really appreciate having the opportunity to apply my skills and improve my strengths to perform as best as I can. I would highly recommend Mercy to almost all types of students.
