4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my professors. They know what they are teaching and do a great job. I love that the class sizes are under fifty so that we are able to know fellow students as well as know the professors.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Mercer is a fantastic school. Many businesses and companies have been known to chose Mercer graduates over graduates from other schools because of our reputation.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Mercer is a safe campus. Mercer Police is located on the edge of campus to keep an eye on some unsafe areas nearby. They have just added several new gates so only students and faculty can drive on campus. Mercer police monitor the campus all day and night.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Mercer has just built two new housing facilities that are great! Laundry is now free to those living in the dorms. Many of the older dorms have been repainted and refurnished so they are better now.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have several friends who are in sororities and fraternities. They hold events in the community and on campus. They are recognized by other students on campus and other organizations. Each fraternity and sorority has a house where eight to ten students can live, but they also have a common area in the house for parties and hangout events.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Almost every sport is watched by many of the students at Mercer. We have huge student sections at every game, and students are given the opportunity to attend away games as well. Many fans and alumni attend basketball, volleyball, and football games. Everybody sports Mercers colors, black and orange, and our mascot Toby the bear.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Mercer University. It is a well-rounded college for anyone. The students are friendly and studious. The professors know their fields and teach well. Mercer is constantly going above and beyond in every field.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: UGA has a ton of alumni that help connect you with opportunities. And the degree comes with a ton of respect, so it's great to network with.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: University Housing is one of the greatest parts of UGA. The Housing staff goes above and beyond to engage all residents (all first year students and any upperclassmen wanting housing) and to ensure that diversity and inclusion are all topics met in the standards of housing training. They even go as far as having positions in University Housing that engage students in topics and issues of social justice and diversity. The dorms are small, but great in forming a community. The amenities include free laundry as well as several study rooms. The cost is fairly cheap considering off campus options. Housing is relatively easy to register into.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I see a lot of good things that Greek Life does, but it is known for the party scene on campus. A lot of fraternities and sororities boast about being the involved in the community and unfortunately they are not as involved in serving the community as they are throwing parties.

5 College Junior

Athletics: As far as athletics goes, UGA was NOT lacking in any way. Football is a huge attraction and there are many different kinds of sports to watch and get involved in during the year. The fitness options for students are plentiful.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Georgia overall was a good school with great opportunities for their students; however, it was not exactly the most approachable in terms of atmosphere and peers. The culture of the students is one of great privilege and high socio economic status. There was a large deal of entitlement, snobbiness, and a lot of segregation by the student body because of it. I would rate my social experience a 7/10, only because I took it upon myself to join numerous clubs and meet people. My academic experience would easily get a 9/10, because of the high rigor of the classes and academic opportunities that were presented to me. I was able to study abroad, join research teams, and even start my own organization.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone is there to help you. The professors are there because they love their field of study and they love to teach, not because they failed in their field.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
