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 has been a place that’s definitely helped me grow as a man and take a step forward in the right direction. I’m moving on to the future.

Mercer to me means that I’m majoring in changing the world. To me it means that I can go out there, and I can move to another country by myself, and I’ll still have that spirit and that backbone and that desire to help other people.

I was chosen to be on the first Academic All-America (basketball) Team. It kind of put me in the top category as far as academics and athletics in the country. … (It) was just a really, really exciting moment.
