Samuel Merritt University Reviews

SMU emphasizes safety and patient care above all else. The student to professor ratio is 8:1, which allows me to clarify about mishaps I have. The professors really care about what they teach and they choose students with fires in their souls. I love being around people that want to help others through all walks of life. I have never been happier attending a college before SMU! All the blood, sweat & tears are worth fulfilling my dreams of taking care of others - with love and empathy.

Fast responses from administration and professional attitudes with qualified staffing. They treat their students more like a human rather than a number. Admission interviewers were well prepared and very knowledgeable about your resume and application. I am only just starting but I am already happy with what I am seeing from this university. I am also at the Sacramento branch, just for reference.
Very welcoming, I’m on my first year and everything has made me so excited to be here. I love Samuel Merritt!
