As I explained in an earlier answer the Financial Aid here at Mercer is very much lacking. As for the tuition, well that's a whole different story. At first the prices seem amazing, that is until they add in all of their extra fee's. I am currently taking 2 classes which should have totaled roughly $1,164 but after all of the "technology fee's, online fee's, etc." my total cost was $1,376 which is crazy! This also does not include books or any other items required for class.

Despite being a very small community college, Mercer provides a variety of resources. The student center has tutors every single day around the clock on all subjects. The tutors are a vareity of different proffessors. They provide free counseling for any problem at any time. They have a career center with very knowledgable and successful advisors. They have a student support service. The list goes on. However, being a small county owned college, the library is small (and sometimes crowded) and there are sometimes long lines. The gym has a pool and studios and gymnasiums, however students (and the public) have to pay an expensive monthly memberiship fee in order to use. However, they do offer free classes open to the public.The general campus is generic, and the cafeteria is one room with very bland food, but they're trying their best. There are resources and opportunities open to all. One just has to take them. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the campus resources.

At Mercer, classes are small like most liberal colleges but in lower cost. Professors are very helpful and always willing to help their student succeed in and out the classroom.Financial Aid is ok but go in person. Registration office however is horrible due to unqualified staff and there are long lines during certain times of the day. Cafeteria is awful nothing but greasy foods and the only thing that's remotely good are the french fries when they're fresh. Parking is troublesome after 8. Clubs are great especially the school's Radio Station, Viking 89.1 FM.
