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 is a place of growth and evolution. If you fully participate in the college experience and try to make the most of your time there, there’s no chance that you’re going to leave Mercer the same as you entered. And that’s a good thing. It changed me substantially for the better.

Chris Henderson, EGR '04, MBA '13

I feel like Mercer was a great place to come for someone who had no idea what they wanted to do. The freedom to take different classes my freshman year is what allowed me to find my passion. ... I feel super prepared for whatever it is that comes my way.

Mercer has prepared me for a successful career in counseling by providing both hybrid and hands-on learning experiences. I enjoy being able to learn in a hands-on setting while getting feedback from professors and peers. There are always opportunities on campus to get connected, attend seminars and get insight on conference opportunities.
