Mount Mercy University Reviews
I am a Freshman at Mount Mercy University and so far I have had a great experience. The Mount Mercy community is amazing and everyone is so welcoming and friendly. I chose Mount Mercy because of the great atmosphere, when I came to Mount Mercy I just felt like I was at home and it was the right place for me. At Mount Mercy there are so many great opportunities to get involved, faith groups, athletics, academics, clubs, fundraisers, about anything that you can think of Mount Mercy has. The one thing that I want to help change about Mount Mercy is the student engagement in all of these activities. This school has so much to offer an unfortunately student do not take advantage of it. Mount Mercy has turned in to what we call a "back pack school." Overall I love Mount Mercy and it has brought me to some of my closest friends. I cannot wait to continue my education at this school.
Mount Mercy was a small, private, all girls Catholic college back in the day, so we don't have a football team-- yet. The athletic department is working on building a new sports complex and plans to have a football team by 2020. As for school spirit, we've got it! The fans are so pumped up to watch the players play, yelling and cheering every chance they get. Cheer and Dance just became a sport, too, which means we have girls on the court pumping people up as well.
My overall experience at school has been great so far. When I first came to Mount Mercy on a visit, I fell in love with the campus and how friendly everyone is here. Once school actually started, I was nervous about starting a new school, and meeting new friends, but now, I LOVE going to school here at Mount Mercy, and I wouldn't change the friendships I have. I didn't just come to Mount Mercy to pursue my career in nursing, but I also wanted to continue bowling. Bowling here at Mount Mercy is definitely different than high school bowling, but I love it so much. I have met so many great people on the bowling team and I can tell that no matter what, they will always have my back. I'm so glad that I came here to Mount Mercy because it has definitely been a year to remember, and I can't wait for the next three years.
