Merrimack College Reviews
I had great professors and not so great ones. But the one’s that were great have helped me throughout my four years and I will never forget them.
Former athlete at Merrimack. They treat them great, some more than others. But overall athletics are supported and there are many oppetunties to see games/matches
Housing is terrible. Get off campus housing when you can! The food sucks too. I never ate at the cafe.
Dorms are small and stupid. Not what you paid for :)
Friends I made were amazing! However I wish there was more diversity!
