WHAT I LIKED

I liked the area Mercer is in, and the size of the school as well.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I don't think they do a good enough job of showing they care about students who suffer from mental health issues.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

The size of Mercer University makes it a very welcoming, family-like environment. The teachers are very accessible at all times and I never felt as though I was just a number in a system. All of my professors knew me by name and were always available for extra help. Especially as a freshman, I found the adjustment to college very easy because of the accommodations at Mercer.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There are very limited options for food on the weekends which makes it hard when living on a budget.

WHAT I LIKED

Mercer University is eminent in learning and developing the knowledge of its students. At Mercer, professors are highly prestigious and push students to their full capacity. Professors are very wise and are willing to help and tutor students with coursework. There are many outlets where students can receive extra academic help.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The one flaw that Mercer University has is housing. The freshman dorms are very outdated and in need of renovation.
