Why I Chose Mercer

Each person’s Mercer story is unique, but we all chose Mercer for one reason—to make a difference. Students, faculty members, and alumni have all been deeply impacted by Mercer’s mission.

“I went to Mercer On Mission Vietnam last summer and it was an amazing experience. Nothing beats helping someone walk for the first time—seeing how happy they are and knowing that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. Learning how to do it hands-on really does change your education experience.”

Stephanie Howard

Deputy Director of Mercer Innovation Center and Adjunct Professor

“I chose Mercer because I was at a point in my career where I was looking for a place where I could have an impact and I wanted to come to a place where I could directly work with young people and future marketing leaders and have an impact on their career growth.

“I chose Mercer because I really liked the small class size and individualized attention. I think the most unique thing about the Mercer experience is you get to participate in a large campus environment and you have the opportunity to be a student leader which helps you develop in ways that you might not get to experience otherwise.”
