Mercy College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
Mercy college has a fantastic social work staff and department, but that's about all it has. The rigor of the social work classes is challenging and on par with what I desire as a student but the general education classes are laughably easy. Parking is a nightmare, the cafeterias are overpriced and underwhelming in both quality, selection, and attention to dietary restrictions, and the security staff is terrible to the point where I have feared for the safety of myself and fellow students under their "protection." Financial aid and other administrative counselors are incredibly incompetent and often leave you worse than has you not saught their help. The school has no community or culture as a largely commuter school, and I have never felt any sense of school pride instilled in me by the lame efforts of student life. I recommend my program and it's professors highly, but I cannot wait to graduate and move on to a graduate school with more to offer me.
I received my BA from mercy college and I am currently enrolled in their masters education program. Majority of my classes were taken online. Personally, the online program worked for me. I am a mother of three beautiful children and work full time, the adjustability of online classes cannot compare to in class. I loved all my professors and learned a lot from each course. The course requirements was reasonable and very on point to my career. In conclusion, I would highly recommend my school because the classes were very interesting and the professors were very negotiable and understanding, I am looking forward to another semester at Mercy online!! Thanks to the incredible courses I am the teacher I am today. I have confidence in my teachings and feel prepared to enter the education system!
It is unquestionable that Mercy College has provided a wonderful learning experience for me, as a student looking to enter graduate school in the fall of 2017. Firstly, the professors that I've had, not only in my major but in other required elective classes, were nothing but supportive and helpful. Although, the material being learned may be very difficult at times there is not one time I can say I was afraid to ask a professor for help. They are also very organized as a whole, and I mention this due to the fact that I believe organization is very important when teaching difficult material to a large amount of people. The fact that the college gives a lot of financial support to many students of lower income status has helped me greatly, because I don't know what I would have done without this aid. On the other hand, the campus is beautiful and relaxing, and doesn't have any sororities and fraternities. Meaning it is a relaxing atmosphere and a great study environment to be in, that doesn't have many opportunities to leave your school work to go party. All in all, this is an excellent school and I would recommend anyone to go here. I will definitely cry during graduation.
My experience at Mercy College was great. The staff are very kind and helpful. My professors were very respectful, kind, understanding, creative and fun. They make learning so interesting and assignment/projects were exciting to do. I enjoyed every class and appreciate the wonderful learning experience. I will be attending Fordham University this fall to earn my MSW.
Mercy College is an exciting place. It's full of diversity and people who are eager to learn and teach. The students are very friendly and they make you feel like you've been attending the college for longer than you have. The staff is very hardworking and they always make sure to answer any questions or concerns that may arise. The atmosphere at Mercy College has a way of captivating you. It right next to the Hudson River , and its surrounded by greenery. So if someone ever wanted a peaceful place to study or just a place to relax and enjoy the scenery, Mercy College is one of those places. The curriculum at Mercy College is challenging, but the teachers make it fun. From chemistry to art, the courses they provide not only push you, but they make you open your mind and cause an exploration of ideas and thoughts. College should provide great educational opportunities for its students, but it also should also allow students have fun and grow. Mercy College is a college that does that, and it also provides a comfortable environment for all.
The social work program was amazing with qualified, knowledgeable caring professors.
