Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are that instructors are dedicated to making sure students succeed in the program, and there are many resources available. The con is the distance needed to drive for particular classes/programs offered at a certain campus.

Have not experienced cons yet. So far the staff at Mercer make you feel like your opinions and concerns matter. You don't feel like a number.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The grad programs are catered to the working adult and the program is sufficiently rigorous. The faculty is very competent and possesses a lot of field experience from their everyday involvement. The student body as a whole and the program contains a lot if of diversity. The cons include the tuition and traffic. Mercer is a private university so it is very expensive. While commuting to the campus I’m often faced with tremendous traffic.

At the moment I do not have any cons about this school or program. The course load is fair and the professors are excellent. The campus, while small, is very diverse. I am more than satisfied with my program and school.

I am a new enrollee so I will say, as a disclaimer, that my experience with Mercer University-Atlanta Campus is limited. However, I recognize that there is a great emphasis on course rigor and professional,development. I enjoy the accessibility to Faculty and Staff and the eager responsiveness. Financial aid is provide through federal loans, and outside scholarships are accepted. However, the program currently does not provide internal scholarships for graduate student (with the exception of a partial scholarship for study). On- campus apartment is beautiful, but is also a little pricey. The city's primary bus service, MARTA, runs infrequently in front of the campus , however, there is almost never an issue with parking. Overall, the good definitely outweighs the drawbacks and there are many opportunities for career and social development through the many student organizations on campus.
