    The Macon campus is beautiful and the people are nice. The only problem is if you are without a car, things are a little far away, such as walmart and what not.

    I love living on campus in Macon. The only drawback to the Macon campus is when you leave the college town you have to be aware that there is a lot of crime in the area and need to be smart to prevent putting yourself in vulnerable situations. If you are smart, you will be okay.

    The first two years you are required to live on campus unless you are a commuting student from the area. This means that you are stuck on campus with people who are your age and have similar interests. The campus life is thriving. You see all of your friends in the cafeteria, and the number of students doesn't leave you a stranger if you are not in Greek life.

    Mercer is the perfect place for me. I am so happy with Mercer because of it's service based learning: one of Mercer's slogans is At Mercer, everyone majors in changing the world. If you are someone who likes to serve others, Mercer is the place for you. In addition, Mercer has great religious organizations, clubs, intramurals, and greek life. Mercer also has an awesome club that is dedicated to bringing fun activities to campus such as water gun fights, laser tag, and Bearstock which featured the band 3Oh!3.
