Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Mercer provides a great overall experience for its students. It offers a good social environment, as well as an exceptional academic environment. However, it is also difficult. Even if you easily received A’s in high school, you will have to put substantial time and effort into your work here if you want to continue to get grades like that.

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.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Getting financial aid is the Mercers top priority. The keep us informed on deadlines, applications issues and needs, and help us reduce debts.

College Junior

Athletics: At the Mercer Macon Campus, majority of the sports are hosted there due the Atlanta Campus is unable to supply the availability for those sporting events. But Mercer Atlanta Campus take trips to Macon or with Macon by charter bus so that we can attend events, use the student centers to watch the event streaming live via satellite, and stay engaged the best way we can. I am a Bear!

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: It is okay. The campus dining is kind of small but does its best at offering different options with a limited menu. They cater very well to different ethnics and other faiths based beliefs. The prices can be a little bit to much but I understand that much of that is the result of the economy along with the surge of soaring food costs industrially.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Atlanta has a lot to offer from gay/lesbian, to authentic Asian restaurants, Mediterranean festivals, African American festivals, Eastern cultural festivals, Hispanics, European, and more. Mercer is Number one in recognizing local official of diverse backgrounds whom has played a major roll in the turn of history events to date. You will never know who would show up on Mercer's campus from President Jimmy Carter to David Christian.

Facilities: Student life involve many things. What I love about Mercer is that everybody is family regardless of your beliefs, orientation, and ethnicity. I have never seen a college campus flooded with international students from the East. It is a wonderful site. The theology students host a weekly fellowship with students from other countries to get them involve in networking, crossing other barriers that they may have faced in their own country, and help them build on their English language. The are always seminars from each school, volunteer drives, giveaways, movies, lunch and learn incentives, free food initiatives from community leaders, volleyball, basketball, tennis, and a host events with the youth and high school students sporting activities. Mercer is also a strong community supporter and server. Many of us also join together on major sporting events to enjoy some form of leisure at local pub bars or restaurants. After a certain hour campus gets very quite. Not everyone parties or mess around because they are focus on the next goal and agenda. Many of the hangout spots are located on Lavista and Blaircliff roads. There are plenty of other services like suicide prevention, counseling, career events and webpage, and many trips to other countries.
