Merrimack College Reviews
Merrimack College is a small community where you see the same helpful and friendly faces everyday around campus. Merrimack actually allows students to voice their opinions and is constantly improving. Merrimack is where I have made close relationships with professors who have written me wonderful letters of recommendations, which helped me get into law school. I have also met wonderful life long friends here. Merrimack college has provided me with exceptional academic preparation for the real world and stresses the importance of internships and jobs. Merrimack will set you up with a paid internship to help further your career, as most jobs want experience upon hiring. Merrimack also allows you to join a variety of club and meet a diverse set of people. Merrimack is what you make of it, as we are constantly reminded to "make it your Merrimack"!
I came to Merrimack with extremely high expectations of how the college life should be but was let down very quickly. If you loved high school this is the perfect college for you, it is cliquey, people are two-faced, and the professors hound you about work and attendance. Along with this, the college is outdated and growing at an unprecedented rate causing hectic construction as well as a dirty feel on campus. This growth is not only causing bad conditions on campus but it also takes away from the personal feel that I had been looking for in a college. Overall, Merrimack, in my opinion, is a great deal of money for very minimal in return. Save your money.
When you decide on a major, you will have certain course that are required to be completed. Advisers and professors are very accommodating and helpful to make sure you are able to get into the classes you need. Class size will depend on your major, whether it is an honors course (those are typically smaller), and whether it is a gen-ed requirement. The average class size I have experienced is around 20, but some freshman science/health lectures can be as large as 50. Even with larger classes, professor are very good about keeping office hours and being available when you need them!
