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"!

Transferring from Merrimack was the best decision I ever made. Absolutely awful dining, housing, and social scene. Nothing to go do in the area unless you have a fake and can hitch a ride to Lowell. Clubs and teams are cultish and make it feel like your high school nightmares all over again. From an academic standpoint, a diploma from Merrimack in anything besides Business or STEM majors is an absolute joke. Some faculty are great but others are super discriminatory and don’t take student illnesses or mental health issues seriously. ADA office won’t help you unless you look disabled. There are some people who are absolutely fantastic human beings on campus but they are few and far between. Spend your money elsewhere, Merrimack doesn’t deserve it.
My freshman year was a success! I am very fortunate I chose Merrimack College for my college education for many reasons . To begin with, I loved my dorm and the Monican building. I was lucky enough to get the only room on the floor that had a bathroom in the room!

My classes and schedule were great and they made it an easy transition into college. I couldn’t say enough about all my professors. They are dedicated professionals that truly love to teach students and care about us succeeding. I was pleasantly surprised that I really enjoy my religion class, and of course the professor made it interesting.

I loved watching the football games, especially at their new amazing
football field! I did field hockey as a club sport and played lots of basketball right outside my building .

I made many friends that I look forward to seeing in the fall. Go Warriors!!!
