Senior year is full of memories that you will cherish for the rest of your life. It’s a time to remember how the past four years have impacted your life. It’s an opportunity to thank those who have shaped your character—your family, friends, teachers, coaches, and other loved ones. It’s a season to plan for the future.
Your senior year might look a little different than you thought it would, but the future is bright. For our graduating Mercerians, the next step might be starting graduate school, completing an internship, or landing their dream job. For you, it’s becoming a Mercer Bear. Mercer is a place for you to grow, thrive, and discover your potential. To meet new people. To challenge yourself to be the best you can be. Get ready…because the next four years are going to be your most transformative yet.
