Most impressive! When my wife and I visited for one of their prospective student activities, we were pleasantly surprised with how well spoken the student guides were, and how knowledgeable they were about the campus history. It didn't take long for us to be won over, and our child - who was planning on attending another university - quickly realized Mercer was the place they wanted to be. Two years into this operation and we are all still convinced Mercer is the perfect choice!

In fairness, my review will be purely in light of the facts. So, what are the facts? Let me begin with the white privilege issues at Mercer. On the one hand, mercer is a western institution, and I understand that. So, teaching Plato is not necessarily a bad thing. On the other hand, the humanities at Mercer are so skewed towards the west that it borders on elitism. What is the basis of this elitism? It is not the subtle, but still elitist, writings of Plato and Hegel, which undoubtedly lift the western tradition above other traditions because of their emphasis on reason. Historically, even this subtle elitism has been used to justify western domination of the world; a tradition that says western culture is the more rational one, and that whites are the most civilized race. Of course, moderns have found ways to undermine this elitism. Plato can be read in more inclusive terms. Despite his crap about white supremacy, Hegel's ideals of freedom might be applied to all cultures. Such things are the basis of a subtle form of elitism in western universities today. No, the true elitism emerges when a Eurocentric culture attempts to supplant another culture with its own values, while overtly ignoring the essential aspects of the nonwestern culture. Moreover, it is when a Eurocentric culture goes out of its way to put another culture beneath itself; when it actively causes indignity; when white privilege is written into the fabric of the institution. Such is the state of affairs at mercer today. This is when the Christianity department has 9 full time members, and the Africana studies department is given inferior status, made up of white faculty members from other departments. This is when the philosophy department has 7 western philosophers, but finds it ok to relegate eastern philosophy to the spare time and incompetence of one of them. And, this is all the while the university in general FORCES everyone into useless, boring classes that speak only to white ppl and the western humanities. Perhaps, I would not mind this elitism if not for the substandard education of this institution. In one class, a professor simply texted on his cellphone for the entire hour. In another the professor put me into my teaching program three weeks late. (one professor physically intimidated me for talking in class, and then, since I was getting even and agitating about the unfair treatment of Asians, decided to make another innocent asian girl get on her knees and beg to drive home the point of how mercer works). (i dont blame him though. The injustice of Mercer is part of the injustice of the world, which is in me as well. I needed to experience such racism in my life.) Another professor just stopped coming to class when she felt like it. They dont teach. They hide knowledge instead of sharing it. College should be taught in such a way that the second a freshman comes into school, they have a organized database of knowledge, books organized by discipline and subdiscipline. I just wrote my first book. (Amazon. com. Search God, Nonduality, and Utopia) My second book is on the future World Education, and results from the subtle racial bias, corruption, and extortion of Mercer over students who know no better. Just google Mercer university and racism. But honestly, they're not completely to blame. Most of their racism is unconscious, I'm pretty sure. Alright alright, lets be completely fair, most parts of their education are average. most mercerians (barring those in power) try hard to be inclusive and are good human beings, but I just happened to land the crappy, racist teachers.

If I had to sum up my experience and suggestion about Mercer University, I would just say: run away. If you are a bad person and want to try an expensive trial of what hell will be like, enroll for something in Mercer. First of all, terrible weather and the city is the worst. When I say it, I really mean it. Macon is considered the worst city to live in the United States. There is nothing happening, it's dangerous and people are super disrespectful. Second, employees (not faculty) are super rude. The people who work in the cafeteria act like they don't want to be there and make you feel unwelcome. Food is not good (worst than average for university cafeterias), dirty, cockroaches and rats everywhere, including dorms. If you want to turn your good years of university in a bad experience, you know the place.

...when choosing a college or university one should do indepth research and visit the campus. The website of Mercer portrays an unique college experience where all can matriculate and thrive. I smile... knowing now, that it was all a great Marketing Campaign! Some may reference it as the "Ivy League" University of the South, but I dare to differ. Offering courses that do not align with standards for higher education, faculty that are tardy or absent from classes, poor dormitory living condtions, over priced, and a flawed admissions process is subpar.

When visiting this campus I felt a feeling of peace. The facilities are well kept and clean. A friendly environment and staff was helpful and welcoming.

As an alumnae of Mercer, I can't say enough good things about my experience as a student. Every professor I had was easy to talk to and accessible any time I needed help with a class. My advisers did a fantastic job of helping me stay on track and graduate with my two degrees. Every staff member I met from the professors to the Registar's office to the UC Food Court employees was friendly and helpful. The school spirit at Mercer is top notch and welcomes every student with open arms. I lived on campus every year and never had a problem with housing or the food served in the caf. When I left Mercer, I felt prepared and had obtained a job to work in my chosen industry. Being a part of such a tight knit community made me never want to go home - Mercer was my home.

Simply put, Mercer will not just give you a degree--you will earn it. Along with those hours of studying and hardwork, the university's focus on helping others will grow you into a better person than you were when you first arrived. With all the perks of a huge state school with none of the negatives--it is the best option for students looking to grow intellectually as well as socially. It is the best.

Mercer University is quickly becoming the premiere educational institution in the South. With a gorgeous campus full of history as well as modern touches, Mercer is exploding with unique features and its own vibrant culture. As a Stamps Scholar at Mercer University, I can confidently say that this school is incredibly challenging regardless of the field of study one chooses. Professors have one-on-one relationships with students that allow them to receive individualized assistance. I have yet to have a professor that did not take an active role in my education both on and off campus. The faculty is one of a kind. We have a top rate athletic community and are best known for beating Duke on 2014--a high note in Mercer's 120 year sports history. The newly built football stadium has also changed the culture on campus and placed Mercer University on the map. I have met lifelong friends and brothers at this university, and I am forever grateful for the impact that Macon, Georgia has left on my life. If you make the wise choice and submit your admissions deposit for this illustrious institution, know that you are following in the footsteps of thousands of men and women who came before you and changed the world for the better. Mercerians are Movers and Shakers! If you want to make a difference in the lives of others and graduate in a position of prestige, this is the school for you. GO BEARS!
