Mount Mercy University Reviews
At Mount Mercy University, the staff members and all of the professors seem to really care about your learning and want you to succeed! They appreciate when students use their resources to get help at any time. You are never doubted to succeed.
For the past two years Mount Mercy University has played a pivotal role in my journey to becoming a nurse. Mount Mercy University offers a strong nursing program that allows student to achieve not just an RN, but their BSN in only four years. The campus is close and easy to navigate. The faculty and staff are eager to help students to achieve their goals. The only thing that is hard about any college is the tuition. I almost didn't attend Mount Mercy University because I believed it to be too far out of my price range. However, it's an amazing university well worth the expense.
I couldn't imagine going to any other school! There is such a warm environment and you immediately feel welcome. The tunnels are an added bonus. One thing that I don't like is housing and food. With Mount Mercy being a small school, it's kind of hard to find a good roommate. My sophomore year I got paired up with someone I went to high school with even though I chose a random roommate. The dorm life could be better.
