Terrible university.AverageEducation
Terrible university. Racism is part and parcel to the institution. Substandard education. Made mostly As and i still think the programs were terrible.

Question
I have attended this school for two andQuite BrightOther
I have attended this school for two and a half years now and have had the opportunity to interact with faculty and students on all types of campuses. There is a culture that is being bread at the main campus that "non-traditional students" do not count. It is discriminatory and should be something considered for those who intend to attend this school as a working, or "non-traditional student." Yes your degree will say Mercer at the end, but the lack of inclusion that you will feel during your tenure at this school is very evident. This issue has been brought to the administrative staff and the President himself not only encourages, but tolerates the discrimination toward the "non-traditional students." You will be excluded from a lot of campus functions and activities because you are "non-traditional" despite the numerous hurdles you will have to encounter as a working adult. I attempted to join a fraternity and was told that because I am "non-traditional" I can not participate in fraternities. The attitude from the staff at the main campus as well is atrocious. To my knowledge this is the only campus where the two different types of students are segregated and treated completely different. There is one plus, however, when tuition is due your are equally harassed. The only thing the school wants from the "non-traditional students" is their tuition, that is more than evident.

Question
Mercer is such a wonderful place.Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Mercer is such a wonderful place. I love the beauty of the campus, the class sizes, the professors, the sporting events, and the Greek life. The surrounding city has a lot to do and you're in easy driving distance of Atlanta. Mercer football has been a blast and watching the Bears destroy Duke in the NCAA tournament last year was indescribable. This place really does have a school spirit like none other. I'm proud to be a Mercerian and I'll be sad to leave this place when I'm done.
