"Despite raising tuition prices every year Merrimack College Chooses to spend their money on building new facilities for sports. What the school does not spend money on is hiring enough teachers to provide enough classes for its students. If you go to this school expect to have semesters where you are unable to take any classes that are relevant to your major and required to graduate. Most likely you will end up having to spend more than 4 years at the school in order to graduate."

"The benefits of attending Merrimack are: It's a small school so it has a tight community feel and the faculty is extremely kind and helpful. For me, this was especially true. There are always fun activities to attend, which I imagine has gotten even better over the years. The drawbacks of being at a small, somewhat isolated school are that there are fewer opportunities in terms of things like internships, and there isn't as much diversity as one might find at other schools in bigger cities. However, I loved my time at Merrimack and would recommend it to other students"

"A lot has changed at Merrimack, but I would definitely recommend anyone who is looking to go there. My experiences are all positive, especially when I was going there I was the only female in my major. There was a lot of student athletes in the program, so having the inside point of views in that aspect was interesting. We also got to do a practicum inside the athletic department, working side by side with the athletic director. I was able to create a budget with the athletic director that was used in a meeting with the president of the college, the task was to create aa budget for the school to go D1 for their programs."

"Merrimack College is a beautiful, quaint suburban college campus north of Boston. The graduate class sizes are small and the professors are very knowledgeable in their field. The professors have first-hand experience working in local districts as teachers, principals, program directors, and even superintendents. The school and staff have a great working relationship with school districts in the area and are able to place student interns at various different schools. I don't live on campus, but it seems to be a lively place where students are very involved. I've been to several of the men's ice hockey games and they are fast-paced and enjoyable. All of the staff and employees that I have interacted with have been very helpful, and attending Merrimack College has been a very positive experience."

"Merrimack College is a great school to attend if you wish to obtain a degree in Education. Currently, I am enrolled to obtain my Master's in Education to teach general science to Middle School students and so far, my experience in this program has been fantastic. I have yet to encounter an issue with any faculty member or any restrictions in regards to the courses I have taken. Any problems I have had, which were minor, were IT related and were resolved in a timely manner. In each course I have taken, I have definitely learned far more about becoming an educator than I ever imagined, without feeling overwhelmed with information. Although I am not enrolled in this, Merrimack College offers a fellowship program where you are able to teach and take courses simultaneously without having to pay for tuition. This is an exceptional school not just for education, but for many majors and concentrations (not to mention it is beautiful!). I would highly recommend Merrimack."
