"My experience at Mercyhurst University was beyond blessed! I am so grateful for all of the opportunities that were available to me through both my academic classes and the student clubs/organizations I was involved in. Mercyhurst made it possible for me to grow academically through a brilliant liberal arts education and also helped me grow spiritually through the vibrant presence of the Catholic faith instilled by the Sisters of Mercy. Go lakers!"

"The professors at Mercyhurst University take the time to get to know each and every one of their students and provide guidance and assistance every step of the way. The small class sizes enable students to get the extra help that they need and allow students to feel like they are more than just a number. Although Mercyhurst University may be fairly small in size, it is not lacking in extracurricular activities, as there are plenty of clubs and organizations to become involved in."

"I loved my time at Mercyhurst. The campus is beautiful, the majority of the professors I had were very helpful, I loved my campus apartment and townhouse, and the work study program was great. I wish there had been more dining options on campus and the library could use some updating, but, overall, I am very satisfied with my time at Mercyhurst."

"The two main pros of attending Mercyhurst are the quality of instructors and the affordability. I know from my graduate school research and from my classes that these professors are on par with the faculty at the "more prestigious" schools. They have pushed us past our breaking points and showed us exactly what will be demanded from us in the intelligence community. All of this comes at a price anywhere from half to a quarter of what other schools require in tuition. There is no better bang for your buck than Mercyhurst. The only drawback is that it is not located in the D.C. area, which is the hub of the intelligence community; however, this allows for the cost of living to be significantly reduced. Also, if you are committed to the work, you do not have too many distractions waiting around for you."

"Overall Mercyhurst's M.S. program in Biological and Forensic Anthropology is great. Pros: hands on experience with active forensic cases, extensive fragmentary osteological collection, multiple D-ABFA certified faculty members. Cons: department is a bit disorganized, the university recently eliminated a lot of graduate financial support."
