Mercy is a poorly run college. The students are not recruited for their scholastic abilities. I had an academic scholarship from another institution and was told that Mercy would match it. Needless to say it was the old bait and switch. I was milked dry financially while the student affairs office "looked into" the problem. I left and went to a better institution academically and got into a far better graduate program. Go somewhere else. The academics are not very strong here!
Mercy College is very community based. We have a lot of small events throughout the year, followed by a few big events that are very fun and interactive. Campus is beautiful in the heat of the seasons. Color in the spring and fall, with lots of snow to play in during the winter. Being a part of the Business Honors Program at Mercy, I am expected to have a certain performance level. This can be very stressful and challenging at times, but when you overcome the stress and challenges, you feel more confident in your ability than you did before. This program has given me practical experience in the business world. We have gone on tours to big fortune 500 companies like Bloomberg and Goldman Sachs, as well as smaller companies like Single Platform. On top of this, the professors really try to focus on helping you succeed. Whether it be with individual projects, or finding an interview, they are there to help you.
Mercy College is great for academics if you know your major and you are part of a program. The overall campus is nice and it is small which is convenient. However, the dorms are not up to my standards and there is not a lot to do on or around campus.
