4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Macon is an unsafe community, but Mercer does an excellent job of keeping its students safe.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I think the housing options are small and over priced. I think some of the locations are inconvenient and the buildings overall are not well kept during the year.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am a part of Greek life and could not imagine it any other way. I love the people I ave become close with and see it an opportunity to better myself.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I attend all of the sporting events that I can, I love watching them. I think our football team is not the best and the students do not strongly support them. Our baseball team is phenomenal and nobody supports them as well. The only sport that really gets the support it deserves is basketball.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love attending Mercer. The campus is beautiful and the students are very friendly. There are some things that I would not agree with, however, like how they budget and the lack of affordable housing options. I think it is a great school but very difficult to afford.

Overall Experience: I have had a unique experience being a math major. The mathematics department is small and the professors are very friendly and helpful. In fact, there are more math professors than there are math majors.

Athletics: Our school is very competitive . We have very talented athletes.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Mercer is a small school so it is very easy to make connections.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Everyone's perspective is different. If you think you'd like to give it a change, go ahead. It never hurts to at least try and see if it sparks a little bit of interest.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm a transfer student to Mercer from a big SEC school. You'd think there'd be some culture shock, moving to a much smaller school, but it's been great. Everyone is friendly and ready to help.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't used this aspect yet but I have heard great things. A lot of my peers get good internships, especially in the business school. Mercer also funds summer research programs in the summer which is nice for science majors. They could be better about helping get pre health kids shadowing opportunities

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Mercer's professors are the best part of Mercer. They make you want to work harder and are receptive and available to help you. They respect you and you can't help but respect them. A lot of them have a great sense of humor. Also, if you get a bad one once or twice like I did, chances are they won't be there long. They have a lot of great research they are involved in, but you are the priority. They teach there because they care. They should be paid more than what they're getting.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The administration has not been that perceptive or helpful in regarding sexual assault. I haven't dealt with it personally, but I have heard from numerous students that they are not supportive of victims or victims friends. We have an education program as freshman thats okay, I would like something better. They also put on these punishment classes for some fraternities and sororities and seem to attack greek life rather than the entire student campus about sexual assault awareness and alcohol abuse awareness. I feel safe on campus and haven't had a problem. We have petty crime sometimes but I don't worry about it.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Too expensive for what we get, especially in Macon, GA where housing off campus is much cheaper. Dorms are decent except for freshman dorms but they charge way too much. Maintenance requests are hit or miss and laundry is expensive and inconvenient. The RA's try, but no one really goes to their programs. Its nice when they get hot Krispy Creams though.

Greek Life: Mercer's Greek Life is small and could be bigger. The sororities are doing a decent job of working together but the fraternities could use a little more work on helping each other out. Parties are good, some on campus some of. I wish our sororities threw parties though. Our administration has been attacking greeks lately and is coming after basically all organizations. Our president is biased against fraternity men and has openly said that they are unresponsive and that he assumes the worst in them. Our admin won't take it away but they're not treating the Greek system like they should be.

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.
