D. H. - 12/29/2019
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2019
"I am so glad that I attended Mercer University. The media studies program at Mercer is small, but it also very close with professors who truly care about your academic and professional development. One professor has become my lifelong mentor. Every professor I have had at Mercer has been truly dedicated to ensuring that their students succeed, and they are very accommodating in terms of office hours and providing assistance. While Mercer is known for its exceptional pre-med program, others I have known in the liberal arts have also spoken about having a good experience while attending. Therefore, no matter what program you are in, Mercer may be a good fit. Due to it being a small campus, there may not be as many niche clubs and organizations. However, in my experience, the few that are on campus are close-knit. Some of my closest friends came from organizations that I was either a member of or on which I served on the executive board."

"The college is great for engineering and medical programs. The BME side is famous for their prosthetics they create to go on a trip to Vietnam to fit every year. As for medical, it does a great job of preparing you for graduate schools due to the intense rigor of the courses."

Conley Scott - 6/10/2018
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2019
"Mercer University School of Law is a small and close environment that provides the opportunity for the students to get the help that they need. The classes are small and the professor is as hard if not harder as you would expect for a law school. Many of them are willing to help, but you will have to seek that help out. We also have an academic success program that will be your best friend. Now, besides the classroom experience, Mercer Law is full of excellent student organizations. Our Black Law Student Association is the best and if you plan on attending Mercer Law be sure to be an active member of BLSA. It does not matter what you look like and you will gain opportunities and friends like no other."

Lawrence Brown - 8/15/2017
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016
"The Technical Communication programs was a fairly new program offered by the school. The students in the programs were given an exquisite, hands on approach to learning how to prepare case studies, write proposals, and conduct usability studies. There were many opportunities and people that I have come across during my time at Mercer. All with job opportunities and networking for the future. Possibilities are endless with passion combined with hard work and dedication to the program."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014
"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"

Degree: Performing Arts

"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."

Matthews, Judy - 8/5/2014
Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."
