    Merrimack College Graduate Reviews

    4 reviews
    As an older graduate student, I’m put-off by the level of entitlement and “know-it-all” nature of the graduate students who are directly out of undergrad. The academics are great! Professors are caring and helpful. But, the level of privilege and entitlement from other students is astonishing. Honestly, a lot of them need to be put in their place.
    There are a lot of resources available, but you have to be willing to find them. It’s easy to be disengaged. However, many of the graduate programs have Fellowships that help to defer the cost of attendance, which is excellent.
    There’s also no on-campus housing for graduate students.

    I would put 3 stars for the entire experience and an extra one for the memories.
    Academics: DECENT
    I had great professors and not so great ones. But the one’s that were great have helped me throughout my four years and I will never forget them.
    Athletics:
    Former athlete at Merrimack. They treat them great, some more than others. But overall athletics are supported and there are many oppetunties to see games/matches
    Campus Life:
    ALRIGHT
    Housing is terrible. Get off campus housing when you can! The food sucks too. I never ate at the cafe.
    Dorms are small and stupid. Not what you paid for :)
    Friends I made were amazing! However I wish there was more diversity!
    I like that Merrimack offers on campus and virtual classroom experiences. The online degree program allows me the flexibility to work two jobs while earning my graduate degree.
