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.

Mercer taught me that I don't have to do just one thing in one field, but I can do a lot of things in a lot of different areas even if they don't relate to each other.

The thing I will miss most about Mercer is the people. You really can't replicate this really unique community of people who are driven to not only love others here but also love others outside the community.

What Mercer means to me is not the buildings. It's not the beautiful towers. It's not Macon. It's the people. We are a diverse group of passionate students and faculty who not only care about our subjects and what we're learning but also about the people too.
