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.

The Mercer community is rooted in supporting each other and pushing each other to be the best version of ourselves, not only for each other and for the Macon community but for the whole world.
