The professors at Mercer are passionate and often create classroom environments that are open-minded and thought-provoking. This sense of engagement and candidness can make your courses seem more exciting and worthwhile. Overall, the majority of Mercer students say they would not trade their experience at Mercer for anything.

Nightlife: There are many different places depending on what you are into for fun. There are clubs catered to students, bars and restaurants for dates and casual drinking, and theatres showing some of the local talent living in Macon. Plus, the nightlife is great after sports events, especially football and basketball games.
