Mercyhurst University Reviews
Review Mercyhurst University
I love the feeling I get from the small school community. Everyone is so welcoming and positive. The professor's are super helpful and understanding with any circumstances you may come across. Classes aren't too long, and there's plenty of time between class to not stress about being late. The campus is beautiful, and pretty small so it doesn't take forever to get to class. There's so much to do on campus, a lot of scheduled activities and a lot of space and places to just hang out with friends. Overall a really safe campus, I love every part of Mercyhurst!
Mercyhurst University is a smaller school with around 5,000 students currently enrolled. Out of those 5,000 more than 1,000 of students are internationals which adds a lot of diversity to the campus and invites different cultures to learn from each other. With a smaller sized campus the feeling of home is everywhere, among your friends, roommates, professors and even caffeteria staff. Mercyhurst University prides itself with it's beautiful campus which reminds every student of Hogwarts with just aa little bit more flowers! I love this school, and I'm grateful for all the people I've meet and all the knowledge and skills I've gained. I would recommend this school to anyone!
Wasn't so sure about my decision at the beginning of my freshman year, but now that I've started going to a lot more events and have become involved in more things, it's really a great place to be. There are so many opportunities! I'm a science major here, and so far the classes have been challenging, but they really make you know your stuff. Most of the profs I've encountered in my major are great.
