Mercer is special to me because everyone is different. You can be a traditional student and go here during the day. You can be a night student and work during the day and go at night. Everyone comes from a different background … but when we all come together in the classroom, all of that kind of goes away, and we all can have discussions about our common interest.

No experience is comparable to that achievement, that feeling that I was contributing to something meaningful and had created something new.
