Meet Our Proud Mercy Mavs
Adolescence Education, '23
"I thought that a big school was what I really wanted, but when I was there I didn't feel like an individual. At Mercy, I'm seen as Gaya and not just another student in the class."
Physician Assistant Studies, '23
"I really liked that Mercy was affordable, it was smaller, you're really not just a number here. You can have that connection with your professors which I found was very important for me."
Business Administration, '26
"Mercy makes me feel at home. I feel like I've opened up a new chapter here where I'm able to rise up as an adult and be myself."
Veterinary Technology, '16
"No matter where you come from, no matter your past, no matter your obstacles in front of you, you're able to do anything in this life, as long as you believe in yourself, and people believe in you, and that's what Mercy did for me."
