3.65 Average Rating

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.

What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
Wonderful, intimate setting. Challenging, but it is easy to receive help in your classes. Always something to do, from sports to clubs to food!
Kia from Mableton, GA
Attending Mercer University is one of the best decisions you can ever make. The environment is nice, friendly and there are many fun things to do around campus. The price is really expensive but it is not unexpected considering it is a private university.
