University of Detroit Mercy Reviews
Review University of Detroit Mercy
I knew that Detroit Mercy would be my best choice because of the beautiful, safe campus, small class sizes and great professors and faculty. They all make sure that we get the proper help we need. Unlike students at big colleges, I'm able to know and talk to my professor personally. While I have had good times at Detroit Mercy my freshman year, I do wish that there were more activities on the weekends for the students to do considering a lot of us live on campus. Other than that I truly am happy I chose Detroit Mercy.
The University of Detroit Mercy provides it's students with the highest education. Academically, the university prepares all of its students for careers immediately after undergrad as well as for graduate school. The social aspect that comes along with a small, private school, however, is not the most exciting. Overall, UDM gets an A+ for education and a C- for social.
Greek Life is the only social activity campus really has to offer. Campus obviously doesn't like the greek students and the professors make it very clear that they do not want a greek organization to interfere with their student's grades. On the flip side, the organizations make campus life fun. Weekend parties are what most on-campus students look forward to each week, these are always a good time. I wish there would be more of a prevalence of the greek community on campus because then I feel like more students would stay on campus.
