What are Mercy College Biology graduates saying about the program?
My experience at Mercy was great! I could talk to my professors very openly, they were always looking to help in any way possible. Also, Mercy jump started my career since Mercy is articulated with Logan College of Chiropractics, this allowed me to get to my dream faster of becoming a chiropractor. Everything finally fell into place thanks to Mercy College. - Adam Black, Mercy College Biology Graduate
Choosing to attend Mercy College was one of the best decisions of my life and it is nearly impossible to list every aspect that made it the right academic choice for me!
Being a biology major in a small class setting, offered a unique experience. The students and faculty quickly formed a close cohort where communication and interacting is a key component in achieving success. Mercy College is constantly implementing ways to make the learning experience up-to-date and innovative for each health major. The professors and facilities are definite assets in making this happen; however, the caring advisors, knowledgeable financial aid office, and other diverse departments have helped promote the positive atmosphere that it is.
Mercy College is truly the place to be! There is no other place that believes in you the way they do!
