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.

My main takeaway from college is that you don't have to do it on your own. There are people around you, and I feel like I really found my family here at Mercer.

Mercer is so important because it was such a big stepping stone in my life. I would not be where I am today without it.

Mercer will always be the place that I spent the four possibly most formative years of my life, and I've found so much direction here at this school.
