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.
Review Mercy College
Mercy college offers the private college quality of education and experience at a very affordable cost. The college consists of a very good and aware administration, that will reach out to you and help you with what you need. The professors are professional and understanding, helps students as much as they can. There are different campus throughout New York which makes it convenient for anyone who doesn't dorm. If you do dorm, Mercy college offers different and great options in Dobbs Ferry, New York.
Mercy is a small school that's good for students like me who need their professor's attention as well as close-nit classes. I enjoy a lot about my program here at Mercy, but i can't help but see the many flaws the school overlooks. I have hope that they're beginning to get fixed however, and the new dorms are a great start. Professors don't use their TAs and often don't even have them. The food is pretty bad and the cafeteria only stays open until 8:30 and some days 7 which is terrible for me because I work and have to plan when I eat around my schedule. The financial aid and PACT offices are also VERY unorganized and letters and important information often get lost or are too confusing to understand. Overall however I do want to say that the professors in the Exercise Science program are amazing and they've kept me interested in what I'm doing this whole time. They make me want to go out and research even though Mercy doesn't offer many opportunities for it. I can't wait to continue the program with my amazing professors and classmates. They're what keeps me going!
