Mercy College Reviews
I have only been at Mercy College a very short time, but I have found it to be so much more convenient than WCC, which is where I obtained my Associates degree. I had plenty of bad experiences with that school and I am still trying to get a single copy of my diploma that it’s taking month to obtain from them. Mercy has a wonderful staff that makes it very easy for me especially with working a full time job!
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!
I'm currently in my third year of obtaining my Bachelor's Degree in Mercy College. I am studying Speech Language Pathology. I want to help people around the world who have trouble speaking due to natural impediments or severe injuries that have caused them to have trouble speaking with ease and confidence. My experience so far at Mercy College is great. I have built great friendships with my peers. All of my professors have been amazing as well. They are all very understanding and helpful. My college campus overlooks the beautiful Hudson River which is very admiring to look at especially when you are mentally stressed with essays, midterms and finals year round. Overall, Mercy College has been such a great experience for me so far. I cannot wait to see what these last two years have in store for me.
