    I am majoring in Psychology and minor in Art. I want to work with kids and help them be who they were created to be. I plan to go to graduate school afterwards.

    This school is outrageously expensive. At first glance, your financial aid package looks like a great deal even considering the cost of the school, but it will not be enough for any middle class student. So many things are added on outside of what they tell you, jobs are few and far between even with work study and the school staff/administrators do not want to help. They assume everyone has 20k sitting in their pocket at any given moment. For a subpar school, this is definitely not the best investment, especially if you have other schools in mind. The people around campus are very nice and while there seems to be a few things going on each week you have to actively seek these activities to make friends or get involved. Academics, dorm life, food, and the campus itself seem to be pretty average, so unless you’re looking for a way to waste your time and money, I’d find another school.

    Supposedly, from what I hear, Mercer is very prestigious and the degree means a lot. Mercer is extremely expensive and you should expect to take out loan after loan. The average student will have an average of around $40k in loans upon graduation. You better major in something that will pay that off. Everything at Mercer is pretty old, the classrooms are outdated. Students do not get many benefits like students at public schools get. The UC is the best building in terms of usefulness. Housing is an absolute steal for Mercer. It is the second highest thing besides the $48k in tuition you must pay. Yes, the campus is nice, but very small. The brick buildings are nice. But, go to an SEC or ACC school, the buildings are just a little nicer, yeah, just a little (I am being sarcastic). Mercer is understaffed at the moment (It has been a very long moment). You have to go by the course catalog because for some reason, classes are not offered every semester. So if you are a class behind, consider yourself a year behind because that particular class is only offered once a year. If you want to catch back up, just give Mercer more (of your parents money/depending how wealthy you are) money for their outrageously priced summer classes. It is ridiculous.

    The journalism program is literally one of a kind. There's no other program like it in the country.
