Degree: Pharmacy

Professors go beyond their boundaries to see a student succeeding in his/her career. The school looks into building a student's soft skills apart from providing scientific knowledge.Suggestions from students are given a thought and brought to light..

Graduation Year: 2017

I think the top pros are the faculty themselves. Each and every faculty member is fully accredited in their field and always have an open door for their students. The only cons I have are the campus is a little bit of drive in Atlanta for me, but I do not have a choice otherwise but to commute.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program result in me being able to advance in my field of study through knowledge and networking while helping me to gain a better understanding of public health with a variety of programs. With a small department the professors are able to provide you with help individually a display the characteristics of helping students in need. The cons of my graduate program is the limit to financial aid provided as well as the lack of graduate assistant-ship programs. Due to this it makes furthering your education extremely difficult because you do not have the funds to pay for your education.

Overall Mercer is a great school. The faculty are very supportive and try to help you succeed. I would have preferred to have better surrounding near the school but hey its in the city.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

At Mercer, the faculty really care about their students. I feel like I can talk to any of my professors. Also, my classmates are all different ages and backgrounds so I get to see things from all points of view. I love going to school. On the con side, I do wish financial aid could provide me with more funding, but it is better than nothing. However, the tution is a bargain compared to other private universities in Georgia. All in all, Mercer is has become my second home and I encourage people looking to pursue higher education to apply.

Mercer's CMH program returns what you put into it. If you do not get active and involved within the program, you might not see very much benefit. If you do get involved, however, you will be amazed at the amount these professors will invest into you. Academically, the program is hit or miss when it comes to the challenge/stimulation of the classes. I've had classes in which I have not had to do very much, and did not feel as if I deserved an "A." I've also had classes in which I felt I worked extremely hard for my "A." I'd prefer more consistency, but, like I said before, I've found other ways to stimulate my academic thirst. Would recommend/have recommended this program to others.
