Mercyhurst University Reviews
I loved Mercyhurst for the community and opportunities it's provided me both in my undergraduate and graduate studies. The faculty goes above and beyond to ensure each student is meeting their personal goals. Student life has events weekly and there are so many clubs and organizations on campus that students may choose to get involved with. No matter who you are, Mercyhurst has a way of making itself Home to everyone who visits!
I have had an excellent experience at Mercyhurst University. I believe that the education that is given prepares us as students for the real world and helps us become people of benefit in society. Also, because this university has a small campus, you are able to have a better communication with your professors. Something I would change is the amount of diversity. I would love to see more students with diverse races and cultural backgrounds. Overall, it is a great university!
I love Mercyhurst! Small class sizes, real connections with (amazing) professors, real world experience--often as a freshman--in every major, and a flexible core curriculum. Student life is pretty good, always something going on so there's no reason to be bored. Housing/res life is a mix, but generally better than most schools. People might complain about the dining hall food, but it's still better than 95% of other schools! Worst part is easily the price tag, but if you can make it work (through scholarships or grants or if you have the money) it's totally worth it. So so thankful I'm here, and wouldn't change my decision for the world.
