    Great for these types of students

    Those who like (generally) class sizes. Those who like being able to spend time with a professor when they need it. Those who like having other students in your major to help you out (personally or through our Academic Center of Excellence). Those who love having fun. Those who like having a chapel on campus. Those of ANY religion.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do a tour before you decide for sure. It's a great campus, you may fall in love. Try to talk to people that go to school there and see if you can arrange for an overnight stay, it gives you a glimpse of what college life is like. Ask your tour guide lots of questions! They love to talk about our amazing UNIVERSITY!

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition is quite high and it's (obviously) even more with room & board, but most students get a decent amount of scholarships

    Am enjoying being here

    Even though I am a commuter, I spend a lot of time on campus, whether it be hanging out or doing homework

    Academic Rigor

    Great teachers and atmosphere to be in. Very conducive to learning.

    What to do for fun

    If you want to have fun join a club. You can go to a comedy show or magic show. There are also activities sponsored by clubs that you may attend.

    Food and Dining

    The food is not very good. There is not a lot to choose from. If you are a vegetarian all you will be eating is salad.

    Dorm Life

    There is no air conditioning in McAuley and Regina. There is always a problem with the internet. The rooms are small and not enough closet space.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the teachers are very hard and others are easy. The nursing program is very difficult. If you study for exams then you will not have a problem with passing class.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are a minority and want to become a nurse this school might be hard for you. If you are a athlete for track be wary. Get involved in school activities.

    In three sentences

    Mount Mercy University has a very nice campus. The social work program staff are very friendly and are always there if you need help. The class is small and the teachers always have time to help you.

    Make sure you take a tour of the great campus as well as sit in on classes. The professors love to have interested students sit in on a lecture, and are not afraid to include you in on activities and conversation.

    This campus is very safe. There are tunnels to use from building to building when the weather is bad.

    Clubs and Activities

    Bang for the buck

    I think it is expensive and not very well connected, technologically speaking.

    What to do for fun

    I don't participate in any on-campus activities because of my non-traditional status.

    Food and Dining

    The cafe and grill serve outstanding food!

    Dorm Life

    I don't live in the dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes are easy, some are not.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be aware that certain programs require more output from individuals that others.

    In three sentences

    It has been an overall good experience. Non- Traditional students can be overwhelmed by the workload but it is possible. It is easy to become part of the Mount Mercy Family.
