3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a good school that's just too small for me. They accept anyone who shows interest in the school, which certainly has it's pros and cons. The professors and classes are challenging (at least in the Athletic Training program) but it's a good balance of working hard and having it pay off. Classes are small so attendance is a must, which to some is annoying, but it forces you to get out of bed at 7 in the morning. People generally either love or hate it.

Overall Experience: I love my classes and professors. I have made a lot of friends here. The only thing I am having a problem with is the food.

Overall Experience: The Merrimack community really is something to be recognized. Very shortly into freshman year, you realize how much of a family you have there. As an athlete, things become very hectic and you feel like you have no time for anything. But you have the best support system you could ask for from teammates, friends, teachers and other faculty. Even if you don't play a sport, you are going to find your place within the community. Merrimack really provides unbelievable opportunities to everyone who wants them both socially and academically. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I never really got the opportunity to see the technology, but it seemed to be alright.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: When I went to visit the dorms were very nice and spacious. They made me feel that I can make it like my own home.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The students have a great variety of off campus dining. Things like Chipotle, Burger King, Fuddruckers, and many more are all accessible and we get discounts at a majoity of the places. The prices are not bad at all.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Most of the time when I get my breakfast or lunch it is at Dunkin Donuts or the Warriors Den. I do not have a meal plan so I do not go into Sparky's as much as other students. The food at the Warriors Den is very delicious. I selected "great" rather than "its the best" because of the fact that they only have one menu for everyday. It is a lot to choose from and whatever you select from the menus is amazing.

Party Scene: Although I do not party at school I have heard that they are very fun and exciting. The parties on campus are a great was for students to get to know each other and make new friends with people they wouldn't even expect.

5 College Freshman

Administration: All faculty on campus makes sure the students are safe and living good on campus. We all have an easy access police line we can call if we feel that we are in danger. It is a very safe campus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: My process for getting financial aid was a little stressful because I started off with a large academic scholarship but as my parents made more money they took more money back so I have to constantly be on the lookout for any scholarship opportunities.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most guys come from rich, white backgrounds and are generally very preppy. They are hot and athletic don't get me wrong but those guys are on athletic teams as well.

Athletic teams ( Soccer, Hockey ) will recruit internationally. Other athletes are not far from Merrimack. Some teams (Track, Soccer, Football, Basketball, Softball) Will recruit from other states like New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, California.

The NARPS of Merrimack can be stuck up and into "lifting" too much but they also are friendly.

Health & Safety: It's college there are going to be incidents where someone is assaulted due to the influence of alcohol. However, the Hamel Health Center is great for counseling if someone needs it if they had experienced something like that or other issues they may be having.

The police on campus are always available and there are blue lights on campus.

The worst thing I've seen happen to a fellow student is that person was transported to Lawrence General because of too much consumption of liquor

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have a greek life at Merrimack. Maybe two sorties and one fraternity but it isn't very popular.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: A lot of the students are athletes ( I am one ) however, there are a lot of club sports that people take part of that are very well liked.

The gym that many people go to is very big and a lot of people use it because it is 24 hours. The Volpe center for athletic training has a facility that is good if you are an athlete with an injury or wanting to major in athletic training.

I am impressed with how much popularity the DI hockey team gets as well, but we do have other sports that are pretty high up in our conference

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not have a say

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Panera, An italian restaurant, Burger King, Fudruckers, Starbucks, A yogurt place. It's decent

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It depends on who you know and where to go. During the early fall and late spring months more people go out because it's warmer outside. The parties at the Apartments are decent until they have too many people in it so you can't really dance and enjoy. The apartments in O'Brien I've found are more spacious but they can only be for so long until a lot of people show up.

I've been to a few parties in New Res during the winter and they aren't that bad. Townhouses can throw fun ones too but it also depends on whose it is.

2 College Freshman

Administration: President Hopey of Merrimack College does not really want what's best for the students but what's best for the school and making the school "look" better.

The professors at Merrimack College I can say are wonderful.

Depending on where you live is how you'll enjoy partying and drinking. Most freshman dorms aren't that strict however they have been trying to crack down on vandalism.

The recent incidents with the suicide in one of the academic buildings, the bug infestation, and the professor who was charged with phedophilia really does not help Merrimack's image.

Hopefully they will improve

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got money from an athletic scholarship. All of that was through my coach and the financial aid office which wasn't really a hard process.

I haven't applied for loans yet but that's soon.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The main dining hall Sparky's is good for about a week and then you get sick and tired of it. The food isn't in very good quality unless you get salads or wraps and sometimes they can have rotten veggies. The all you can eat at Sparky's is a plus but at some point there isn't much you want to eat. I've kind of stopped eating meat in college altogether because I don't trust the undercooked meat they serve!

The Den is good when you want a quick snack or drink. My favorite are the milkshakes they sell that you can make! However, I've only had fries as a food option from the Den (Never tried their sushi)

Dunkin Donuts and Zime are the best for coffee and breakfast foods! I'm a coffee lover so all my points and money goes into these two places more than anything.

Make sure you pack up on snacks in your rooms because the food isn't quite great everyday.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I'm living currently in a double in Deegan East. It isn't that spacious but it's enough room to get by! The best part about living in Deegan East is that there is a laundry room downstairs and Dunkin Donuts and the Athletic Center are right across the street!

Some of my neighbors in Deegan East and West are in forced triples which I've heard are terrible and are only getting more common as the school accepts more people.

The bathrooms are OK. I wasn't looking for the best because it is college! It depends on who is on your floor and how clean they keep it (My floor did not)

I had many friends who lived in quads in ash and monhican and they looked decent but the buildings are older and are falling apart. Gatti(O'Brien) is decent as well. But It's newer.

It depends on who is your friends on how you will enjoy the social atmosphere, parties are decent but as the year drags on they get kind of old. RA's are decent it depends on who you have and how strict they are. Sometimes quiet hours are enforced ( On my floor they were not )

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Its gross. Royal Crest across the state high way from campus is not the nicest place to live. Students have to cross a state high way in order to get there for one which is not safe at all. My parents would not allow me to live over there.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We go to Chipotle at least three times a week. The only other places are McDonalds, Wendys and Dennys and those aren't in the safest spot for college girls to be walking to.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Housing is an interesting topic this year. The only people guaranteed housing are the freshman which is silly because when applying to the school you are told that you are guaranteed housing all four years. We come to this school because it is small and we like that and they are trying to expand the school which makes upperclass nervous.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Weekends are really so much fun! Everyone knows everyone or has at least heard of everyone on this campus because it is so small and tight knit. Its really awesome. And campus is so safe so if you had to eave a party and walk to your dorm alone at night you don't feel threatened at all.
