Reviews for Mercyhurst University
The faculty at Mercyhurst are the most incredible adults I've ever dealt with. Each of my professors seems to really care how successful I become and want to help me achieve my dreams. That is extremely important to me. The students also seem very nice and welcoming. I am a transfer student, and I live off campus, yet I still feel pretty connected to the school through my major departments. The campus is beautiful and the perfect size if you want personalized attention. In comparison to the school I transferred from, getting information is much easier and the staff are MUCH more pleasant to interact with. I most enjoy my classes because my professors make them interesting, but I have yet to really experience campus life because I live off campus and have an off campus job that consumes most of my time. However, I have attended a few hockey games, which are pretty exciting.
Mercyhurst allows a "contract major which is perfect for students looking to study in two or three different areas. This option is allowing me to combine the aspects of music and business into one degree, tailoring my degree requirements to what I think will be best suited for my career path. When I came to Mercyhurst, my original major did not require as many in-class hours. The average student takes 3-4 classes a term. Classes are longer than most schools (about 1.5 hours MWF and about 2 hours and 10 minutes TTH), and because of the trimesters, there are only 10 weeks instead of 15. Classes are pretty intensified, but not too overwhelming because most students do not take many classes at one time. For anyone interested in the music department, we have to take many more classes each term plus rehearsals and performances. The workload is about average for a college, although because it is a small school, the professors get to know the students, become mentors, and therefore do hold high expectations, which (in my opinion) provides for a better education. Class sizes are small--about 50 students maximum in an intro level lecture style class, and much smaller, more intimate classes within the majors themselves.
Because I do not live on campus and am relatively new to the school, I haven't really experienced much of the nightlife or weekend activities, other than a few hockey games or spending some time with a few of my closer friends. However, the students do seem to be very friendly and the campus is pretty safe.
I like the class size and it is a small college compared to a large college, very nice atmosphere and livelyhood.
They have nice programs such as associates degree, bachelor degree and certificate
Everyone is very social and friendly and has excellent and trusted atmosphere.
