3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: At graduate level it is difficult to survey some times because most and/or all of us are so focused and constantly on the go. Its like I see you at break, or computer lab, or at the student commons but we all are busy reading, studying, writing or completing a term paper, and/or preparing for a group presentation. Many students are full time family members.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: We don't have the most attractive set of people but we do have a lot of vibrant personalities that make the people more forthcoming. Since the school is small it becomes difficult to keep your business private so many relationships are under the public microscope.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I go to school with wonderful people - great diversity!

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The people here are great. There are not an abundance of attractive people, and there needs to be more social life.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People at the school are very nice. They never hesitate to help people.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The average Mercer student tends to be smart, Southern, and identified by what clique they generally associate with. Because Mercer is a small school mainly composed of Georgia residents, it lacks a wide variety of different types of guys and girls—most students are lumped into the category of “Greek” or “independent.” Mercer’s small size also creates a bubble effect, so personal affairs regularly become public blather, meaning there is usually little privacy regarding one’s current relationship or latest hook up. This omnipresent potential for public embarrassment undoubtedly controls outright sexual promiscuity around campus.

Mercer’s small-school atmosphere provides many opportunities to meet people and go out with them, whether in the form of group outings, on-campus events, parties, or sorority and fraternity formals. Though the student body is lacking in alternative lifestyles and different backgrounds, most people are generally welcoming and respectful to one another. It is almost impossible not to meet someone or get invited to a group function. Despite the prominent social scene at Mercer, there is not much of a dating atmosphere—most people gravitate toward either steady, long-term relationships or hookups.

Social Scene
Most Mercer students would say that as long as you don't stay in your room, you're going to meet people and make friends. Freshmen have the most potential for establishing an outgoing social life by living in residence halls with roommates and hall activities, attending events specifically for freshmen, going to the cafeteria in groups, and joining student groups around campus.
Dress Code
Mercer guys tend to gravitate toward typical "fratty" attire, such as polo shirts, khakis, and T-shirts. Girls have a more varied dress sense and usually wear jeans, tops, and casual dresses or sundresses. Most girls wear more edgy or revealing outfits when going out to local bars. Popular brand names, such as North Face or Bass Pro Shops, are prominent in both gender's attires.
