Why Mercer

Making A Genuine Difference

We hold ourselves to a different set of standards – incorporating a higher sense of purpose to everything we do. This takes us beyond campus walls to Vietnam, Botswana or wherever we are needed.

I hope to achieve my career goals, but more than anything I hope to help others to achieve theirs as well and continue to grow a community that not only represents Mercer but that is able to help this world and make an impact for the better.

I have never had faculty that have invested in me the way that the faculty have at Mercer. They saw my potential way before I saw it. They encouraged me. They have given me opportunities and experiences that I could not have dreamed of.

Mercer is family. I was seeking a spiritual tribe, and Mercer became my spiritual tribe and became my community and my family.
