Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Difficult yet completely worth it. I would not be able to obtain my current position without my current education, and I would not have made the lifelong friendships that I did without college.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I love how the University of Detroit Mercy is a smaller campus. This allows for smaller class sizes and the ability to get to and from class fairly quickly. The smaller class sizes allow for more one on one attention, so your not just being lectured to but instead you are interacting with the professor and classmates to help you learn. Most of the professors want you to succeed and will help you reach your goals if you ask for their help. I am glad I choose the University of Detroit Mercy to receive my higher education.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

I have chosen the University of Detroit Mercy to further my education because that is where I received my baccalaureate degree and my foundation for nursing. I admired the quality of education during my undergraduate course work, as well as the incorporation of service to the community. I desire more of that as I move forward in my nursing career. I won't be in the graduate nursing program until the fall but I obtained my bachelors of science in nursing from the University of Detroit Mercy (UDM). UDM is a private catholic university on the west side of Detroit, Michigan, who not only prides themselves on high quality education of their students, but on community involvement from their students to the surrounding community of the university. UDM vision statement says “The University of Detroit Mercy will be recognized as a premier private university in the Great Lakes region, distinguished by graduates who lead and serve in their communities”. In fact, to ensure that each student serves their community in some capacity, UDM has implemented a required service commitment component into to all of their programs, making it a requirement for graduation. Due to this requirement, I have learned that is very significant to give back to the community.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2018

I like the Masters Degree program in Financial Economics the best out of all the programs in the state of Michigan. It gives me a hands on approach to the subject that I can apply right after graduation.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: I feel like I am getting a good quality education. Much of the staff is concerned with my success. The network of students and staff is close and always helpful, this adds positivity when school work gets overwhelming. Cons: The workload is overwhelming at times, and I feel like there is often unnessecary busy work. Some of the professors, while very intelligent, are not the best at teaching material, this adds to the stress of schoolwork.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of the graduate program for me involves my relationship that I have with my professors. The graduate program at the University of Detroit Mercy allows graduate students the time to arrive for class, receive and engage in weekly lectures or assignments. The program also allows students to engage in different field experience opportunities to become more knowledgeable and aware of the education field. The workload involves activities to, discussions, and participation in things that prepare and gives new ideas for the education/teacher work-field.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2018

Relatively small class years (~150 students per year) provide an intimate learning environment and great student to faculty ratios. The school is furnished with top of the line equipment. This allows the students to practice dentistry to the best of their ability.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2018

Being in the City of Detroit, UDM Law naturally has it's pros and cons. Many people are aware of the stigma that comes with being Detroit and I would say that most of it is true, some of it is false. Anything can happen anywhere, but the school program so far makes up for it. The staff, professors, students bend backwards to help and the smaller classes give more individualized attention. You are actually able to engage fully in the topics and discussions making learning not only easier but more enjoyable.
