4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The library and the available resources is great!

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computer labs are reliable and available for students.

4 College Junior

Facilities: It gives a very "real-life" experience.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: It is a difficult major to get into at my school. The workload and program is challenging, but they are very up front with the students on what to expect.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The students are asked to give their feedback on the professors, which is taken into account by the school.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Because I'm in a specific program and there are only 12 of us total the classes aren't very flexible. There are some of the basic courses that students can enroll in when it is convenient for them, but as for the core courses the students just work around the class schedule.

4 College Junior

Career Services: They help students become successful in looking for future careers.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Everything cost the students money.

4 College Junior

Student Body: Students are very well career oriented and focused on their goals. The programs aren't easy to get into, so the students take their acceptance very serious.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses are very convenient and manageable. The downfall is you have to be responsible enough to manage your time and stay on top of the workload. There is more of teaching yourself than the traditional way of the instructors teaching the students, but the instructors are usually very good about getting back to students within a reasonable timeframe.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The campus has a great library filled with an abundant amount of resources to help with any classes. Other than the library, Mercy College does not have many other areas such as an athletic center or a student center.

Overall Experience: The classes are small which allows for more personal attention from teachers. Classes are easy, but so much new information is learned.

Career Services: Mercy College allows its students to go to school for future careers that will be available to them at Mercy Hospital. It is an easy transition from to school to work.

College Junior

Student Body: As far as I know there is no student body interactions because it is such a full time school.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have experienced great frustration with first class. There are so many teachers that they are not all on the same page. They all teach different ways, and they want different things out of each of us. The class sizes are small with only 6-20 people.

3 College Junior

Career Services: They offer a great variety of job offers for Mercy. I love that when I get done with school I basically have a job set up for me already. At Mercy if you work for them for so many hours and so many weeks, they kind of forget your loan money and do not require full repayment.

College Junior

Online Courses: I haven't taken any online classes yet. I start them next term.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I am getting what I pay for. I pay $8,000 a term to go here. It is very expensive but it is also health care so it's going to be. I know that when I get out school I will be able to find a job that I want and love and be able to pay off my student loans. The financial aid office is great for tips in financial aid. They are willing to help with almost anything.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Mercy is a very hands on school. You can't enjoy what the "normal college" experience. You have to put forth the effort into going to school everyday and the work that comes with it. Campus life is good. There a wide range of choices for food and a place to study. Our library is great. The let you eat and drink there. They also have study rooms for a group of people to study for 3 hours a time.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The resources are great for students. Since I am a nursing major I have all the technology needed for it. There are two big computer labs that are available for students to use and there are a quit place to study. The campus is small and easy to get too.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The network is moderate for a small campus. The printing is ridiculous I think, I feel I shouldn't have to pay for printing. I pay $8,000 a term to go here and I still have to pay for printing? The teachers are very understanding about technology.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am a Nursing major. All of my classes are what I expected it be and more. I haven't taken anything that is irrelevant to my major. I love clinical and I learn so much from it. I workload is extremely difficult. You need to know how to manage your time wisely.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I wish the professors were more organized. There are so many professors that tell everyone different things. The teachers are very willing to work with you. They offer hours to help students who need it. The teachers are very hands on with the students when it comes to clinical.
