Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Mercer University is a great, challenging school at all levels of education. The Atlanta campus can pose challenges if you do not have your own car, but other than that, the pros of attending outweigh the cons. The quality of education and experiences offered cannot be matched. The faculty and staff work hard to make your school experience and career afterwards a wonderful time.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

McAfee School of Theology develops the whole person to be fit for ministry and service in the world. Faculty are not only interested in teaching, but mentoring and assisting students in their career hunt and spiritual journey. McAfee has a commitment to eliminating debt from seminaries and is taking active steps towards continually diversifying its student body and faculty. It is a wonderful place to learn and grow. Students are not too competitive and there is plenty of time to create community, despite the rigorous curriculum!

Degree: Counseling

Mercer's Clinical Mental Health program has allowed me to continue to work while receiving my education. The staff has opened my eyes to many valuable tools that are waiting inside of me and I cannot wait to use them once in the field.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2016

The vital part of Mercer University's Pharmacy program is the academic competitiveness. Mercer is highly regarded nationally as one of the top pharmacy schools .The program is very tough, thorough and challenging which helps prepare the students for their career in pharmacy. The deficiency of this program is the high tuition cost with very little scholarship or financial aid to assist the students. I am constantly worried about the tremendous amount of loans with accumulating interest that I will have to pay back once I graduate.
