5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am transferring from a different college to go to Mercer University, and everything seems to be perfect to me. Ive visited the school and was able to talk to my counselor and build a relationship. She is extremely nice and helpful and everyone that I came into contact was the same way. Everyone wants you to be the best Mercer Bear you can be and want you to leave a legacy. They have great hand-on opportunities so that you can really experience working in the career you want before you graduate. Mercer has everything that I want and its a beautiful campus.

Overall Experience: Mercer is a really good school, and it challenges students to work at their best. The school is great but the city (Macon) is often deprecated.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are not very many options close to campus. You have to drive at least 10+ minutes

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Classes are very strict in attendance and honor code, which I respect. Consequences for alcohol & drug use are barely existent

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The chicken is still pink sometimes, they create weird things with the food (eg. Putting jalapeƱos in fruit salad), the caf closes early, and only subway is open on the weekends

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some dorms are nicer than others. Older freshmen dorms are of very poor quality, suffering from many issues with insects. The university is beginning to fix this by building a new freshman dorm. Upperclassmen housing is limited, as even rising sophomore had difficulties finding a dorm on campus. The university if building many lofts to ease this trouble, but most students find them to be too expensive, and most off campus housing close to school is found in very unsafe areas

4 College Sophomore

3 College Student

Campus Food: i will suggest that the cafeteria have variety of food

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Living on campus looks great to me. you wont regret.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is not a lot of housing in the immediate area. The homes that are close are also kinda expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Mercer Village is great. The food is not too expensive but there are no student discounts since pretty much their only clientele. If you need a late-night snack, go to Waffle house at Riverside Dr. and Spring Street. They are very accommodating to special orders and they also provide student discounts. Also, it's the best WH in the area.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The only thing o do if you're not in Greek life is to go downtown to the clubs. It can get expensive though since they all have cover charges now except for specialty nights.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration and law-enforcment officers are kind ad helpful

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There's multiple offices to deal with. They used to side-by-side so if something was wrong with your financial aid, it wasn't a huge burden to go across the hallway to get the appropriate paperwork. Now, however, they have moved the financial aid office across campus, which has limited the efficiency of both offices somehow.

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.
