Life in Savannah
A city with charm unlike any other, Savannah is one-of-a-kind and houses one of Mercer’s three School of Medicine campuses.
History at Every Turn
Take a step into Savannah and be surrounded by its historic parks and 22 public squares. Stroll down the cobblestone streets and admire the architecture, which ranges from Colonial style to Victorian. Observe the Spanish moss draping the old live oak trees. And enjoy the laid-back atmosphere.
Eclectic Arts and Culture
Savannah is bustling with artistic talent. Wander into a museum or art gallery and appreciate the modern art this historic city brings to light. Visit for the Savannah Film Festival and you may spot celebrities like Hugh Jackman, Emily Blunt, and Amandla Stenberg. Or catch a concert at one of Savannah's many venues.
Enjoy a relaxing carriage ride through historic downtown. See the city from an old riverboat. Be adventurous and join a legendary ghost tour. Or enjoy a trip to the beach at Tybee Island.
Prepare your taste buds to be pampered. Try out one of Savannah's many local restaurants and indulge in a fresh catch from the Savannah River or Atlantic Ocean, try a taste of classic Southern cuisine, grab something fresh from the weekly farmer's market in Forsyth Park, or treat yourself to dinner and a view on River Street.
Living in Savannah for medical school has been a great experience. Between the endless number of great restaurants, many parks to visit, historic sites to see downtown, Tybee Island just a short car ride away, and the Savannah Bananas baseball team, there is never a shortage of things to do or new places to explore.
