    Mercy college is one of the most beautiful colleges in weschester county. Looks aren't everything, but Mercy has more to offer than just looks. The most captivating aspect of Mercy is the staff. As boring as that may sound, it's true! PACT Mentors are Mercy's version of guidance counselors, and they do their job well. You aren't just another number passing through their office asking them a FAQ that you could've googled. You're an individual, and treated as such. The faculty in the financial aid office are competent, which is more than you can say for most colleges, and they also do their job decently. You may be wondering, if this guy is talking about how great Mercy is, why not give it 5 stars? One of the reasons Mercy isn't a 5 star school is for the same reason it's great; that reason is location. Mercy's location may have allowed it to be beautiful, but it is somewhat far away from typical hangout spots (think movie theaters, malls, etc).

    Mercy is what you make of it. You really need to advocate for yourself to do well. However, the opportunities are there! The school is rapidly growing and I would imagine resources will become more available. I was a commuter student before the large student housing was built.
    I like the size of the Mercy College campus as well as the community. I was intimidated by leaving my home to go to school full-time, but the community at Mercy College acts as my home away from home. You're not just a number here, you're you! You have a lot of opportunities to become recognized and get the best out of your education here.
