Mercer University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Great college and great nursing program. Difficult, but definitely doable. There are so many clinical opportunities available in the Atlanta area. The professors are always there for you and want you to succeed. The school has a great reputation around the area and all of the hospitals in Atlanta (and surrounding areas) recognize the students as hard-working and well-rounded
I loved Mercer University when it comes to academics. I did not make many friends, but I had a great time on campus by myself. I rode a bicycle to school everyday and I had a 20-minute bike-ride home at night. I always felt safe and I never ran into any trouble. Mercer University has a number of passionate, experienced, and enthusiastic professors. My professors made my college experience. In 50 years, I will look back on my time at Mercer and I won't remember students. I'll remember instructors. I loved my theology professors, my theatre professors, and my integrative studies professors. I would recommend Mercer for anyone looking for a great education. It's located in downtown Macon, which is growing and developing very quickly. The historic district is beautiful in an archaic way. The architecture for many of the houses are hundreds of years old in some areas, so it holds a lot of history. The Bibb County Board of Education is not the best school system, so this gives students the opportunity to volunteer to help students in the Title 1 Schools around the area. I spent a lot of time at L.H. Williams, which is 15 minutes from Mercer. There is an elementary school right across from Mercer that also accepts volunteers called Alexander II. Where is Alexander I? The world may never know. There is a beautiful park that has been revitalized by the "Friends of Tattnall Square Park" community that has a playground, a gorgeous fountain, public tennis courts, a variety of foliage, and a bicycle trail. Housing for Mercer is expansive and is growing rapidly. Students can live in Lofts in association with the school, in the historic district, or anywhere in the large city. Macon is home to two major theatre companies--Theatre Macon and Macon Little Theatre. Both have wonderful seasons with dedicated directors, designers, and actors. This gives students the opportunity to experience culture in their area. Mercer also has a newly-built theatre and the best theatre productions in Macon. The Grand Opera House opens its doors to traveling shows such as Broadway, comedy, and concerts. There are a number of galleries and art venues in the downtown area as well. As for friendship and a college nightlife experience, you would have to ask someone who's more social. There are so many more things that I could say about Macon, Mercer, and the community, but you would have to visit it to experience it yourself! I hope that I helped.
The professors and students are very diverse and the school has great resources both academic and nonacademic. The facilities offered to the students, such as the university canter and the organizations are quality and taken advantage of by both professors and students.
Mercer University is a school that truly cares about their students. Professors are extremely friendly and invest in students. There is a wonderful student community with great campus organizations to get involved in. I would highly suggest Mercer University to any student looking to further their education.
I can honestly say that my experience at Mercer University has not only enriched my professional life but also my personal life. At Mercer, the emphasis is on building scholars who are confident enough to question society's pattern yet humble enough to recognize when personal change is necessary.
