Founded by Baptists in 1833, Mercer University is a private non-denominational institution in central Georgia. Mercer houses both the largest pharmacy school and the oldest college of nursing in Georgia as well as one of only four medical schools in the state. Once every fall, Mercer students make a pilgrimage to the university’s original campus location to hold an outdoor picnic and re-enactment of Mercer’s founding. For students interested in the performing arts, the Mercer campus is home to the Tattnall Square Center for the Arts, a repurposed church that serves as the headquarters of the university’s Theater department.
Mercer University is a great college for students who want academic rigor, professors who know their names, and a place to meet all kinds of people.
