5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors at this school really care about their students and devote lots of time to helping students in and out of classes. The classes are generally good, though there are still a few teachers who mean well, but are not the best. Class sizes are usually around 25, though as the courses get more major specific, that number goes down.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had no trouble finding internships every summer that I have been in college. Merrimack puts a lot of time into student career success, though I believe it is underutilized by the student body.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: The police and RAs do a fantastic job at keeping the campus safe. Though petty crime does happen, it is infrequent and usually resolved quickly.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Merrimack has done a good job improving the housing selection process since I have been a student and adding nice, new, modern dorms.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Most students on campus feel that Merrimack is "not a fraternity school", and don't bother to join or pay much attention to Greek Life; however, the greeks at the school have a good reputation with the community and the administration for doing lots of charitable events and volunteering.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Having a D-I hockey team is great. More than a third of the students attend every home game. Most of our other sports are very good including baseball, soccer, lacrosse, and others, but not nearly as many students attend these games. Our football team is mediocre and the stadium needs some major renovations; before that happens, football games will continue to be poorly attended compared to most other schools in the country.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Merrimack is filled with great professors and great people. Hard work is always rewarded and there tons of resources to ensure student success. The only issue I have with the school is their determination to keep growing despite the limited space to expand upon on the campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: When you decide on a major, you will have certain course that are required to be completed. Advisers and professors are very accommodating and helpful to make sure you are able to get into the classes you need. Class size will depend on your major, whether it is an honors course (those are typically smaller), and whether it is a gen-ed requirement. The average class size I have experienced is around 20, but some freshman science/health lectures can be as large as 50. Even with larger classes, professor are very good about keeping office hours and being available when you need them!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Our career center is amazing at matching you with internships, externships, and job searches as you get further into your education. They will work with you on building your resume and finding contacts that may be able to help you!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus - you meet a variety of people and it is a great way to socialize and even have study groups with friends in your building!

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is no huge on campus - we have 2 sororities and 1 fraternity. Their main role is community service and fundraising through events on and off campus. Members of Greek life get along with non-members just fine, and are treated equally in every aspect.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Lots of students attend home games! The most popular are men's hockey, men's lacrosse, men's and women's soccer, field hockey, and baseball. There are always students there cheering them on, and the athletes are as involved in other aspects of campus life as any other student! We really are all one big community.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are so many opportunities to get involved (take as many as you can!) and the people are incredible. Classes are appropriate for your study, professors are engaged, passionate, and helpful when needed, and the size allows you to walk around campus always seeing people you know, but also bunches of students you still have yet to meet. I cannot imagine myself anywhere else and am grateful I made the decision to attend MC!

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I strongly believe that the issue with our campus is that it is an open campus, with no gates or anything of the sort to prevent strangers from entering the campus.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love everything about this school. With great friends and great organizations to explore my talents, there is nothing that I don't love.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is a lot of focus on science and engineering, rather than liberal arts.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I am quite biased because I have never participated in the housing selection process. Even so, I love living on campus and have never had any issues with it.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I am in Zeta Tau Alpha and have received a lot from it. I definitely appreciate all that it has to offer.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Merrimack College has truly become my second home. I have made countless friends who are all passionate about the same subjects as I am and I feel very connected and blessed to be at that school

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Two career fairs, thats really it. Career centre doesn't do a whole lot.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman dorms are awful. The most recent buildings that were built are good and are more spacious.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It is irrelevant on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Teams at Merrimack tend to be unsuccessful.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are hit or miss, some great, some awful. The campus is easy to get around which I love.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I love how the police are making rounds at all times of the day and I have walked by myself late at night with little fear. The RAs also do a good job of keeping the dorms safe. Personally I dislike the fact that the police have to let you in when you lose your key and you have to pay even on your first offence. Overall campus police are always present but don't make their presence very know unless they are needed. They are also understanding to the fact we are college students yet take sexual assault and alcohol seriously.
