Mercy College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (10)
I have attended Mercy College and received my B.S. in Behavioral Sciences. I had such a pleasant experience. Most of my classes were taken online, as I did not live nearby. The professors were so knowledgeable and eager to share their insight and experiences. I definitely recommend Mercy College!
As being a previous student I recommend this college to absolutely NO ONE. They are the most unorganized administration you would ever deal with. You deal with a different person each time you try to communicate with them. Each person says something different and doesn't follow through with what they are supposed to help you with when it comes to sending paperwork or finances. They claim they are there to help you, but are useless & mess everything up and blame it on the student. Most the time your lucky if you get a phone call or email back. I can go on and on about the incompetence of this college. Everyone i know that dealt with the school says the same thing. Think twice before attending.
Professors are mostly people with UN and NGO experience that helps us push ourselves to understand today's world issues. Also it is required to participate Model UN to get hands on experience. I just wish that the program would help students get into internships or jobs that relate to our major.
Mercy College is great for those looking for a private institution at an inexpensive cost (comparatively) to other private institutions. I had some pretty great professors like Prof. L, Prof. M, and Prof. R. They made my time at Mercy College much more positive and enjoyable. They made classes interactive, entertaining, and informative which made the experience much more enjoyable overall. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of positive things to say about many other professors at this school. They seem to take the approach of just throwing information at you in a lecture, and they lack enthusiasm for their job. The student population overall is positive, and the diversity in the school is good. Administration and registrar can be a hassle at times, but that's any school. From the time I enrolled to the time I left, the facilities were being fixed and transformed. The main campus (Dobbs Ferry) looks a lot better now than it did in 2009. Mercy College is a great school for business, medical, veterinarian, math, and psychology students, but for those in humanities or the arts, I'd say look elsewhere.
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.
