There are very few options and most of them are unhealthy. The alternative dining sites are the same, and we are no able to have more than $25 built into our meal plan, which is not very much. Hours for the dining hall are terrible. The food is awful. There is nothing good about it in any way.

There isn't a large drug scene, but there is a lot of alcohol usage, and the worst part is there really is no attempt to control any of it.

There are lots of eating options, but a lot of them are chain restaurants or fast food. Plus you need to drive there if you want to go, and it gets really pricey really fast.

Cedar Rapids is a city with no culture, full of chain restaurants and fast food, with nothing to do unless you want to spend money.

The facilities on our campus are beautiful on the outside and inside. It is a great atmosphere. Outside on campus is absolutely beautiful no matter the season which is why I really fell in love with the University. There are many tasteful attractions on the small campus.

I really enjoy the Criminal Justice program I am in at Mount Mercy. The professors are great to work with on a personal level when missing class for athletic events or just other life activities. They are very caring and understanding. I also am a part of the business program and they also have great professors. A few are very bubbly which make their class so much better!

A lot of the University's population are involved with athletics whether they participate or attend the events. We have several teams or members of teams that attend nationals every year in certain sports. Although not all sports teams are as successful as others.

FAFSA is very important to fill out and the sooner the better. However, you have to be sure all of your forms get turned in on time to be efficient. The Financial Aid office will send you a letter with all of your missing paperwork if the case presents itself.

Because of Mount Mercy's small campus , diverse majors, and the ability Mount Mercy gives you to succeed in what you choose to major in in their college. The special study options and help, and ability to take night classes helps every kind of student eventually reach their goals at their own pace. The professors and curriculum are helpful and understanding and the curriculum is not at all way to difficult to keep up in and to do quality work in. The course work can be heavy at times but at like every other college their are crunch times and fun times and Mount Mercy has a great balance between both.

In Cedar Rapids you can get any type of food you would want. There are food chains that the cost is average. There are also many fancier spots in the area that are not to expensive for price.

Athletics are not a very big thing around campus, but right now the boys basketball team is doing really well so they draw bigger attendances to the games. We do have school spirit days which are pretty popular, all you have to do is wear school colors and then you can get discounts at the books store, coffee shop, and Hilltop.

I have lived off campus for years so it just depends on your preference
College Sophomore 2013-02-15T14:48:00Z
There are lots of options, but they close fairly early for night classes. Hilltop grill is open later, but is not close to the accelerated classrooms.

It's Iowa, so be prepared for anything! The parking lots are kept very clear from the snow and I have not had any ice issues yet.

I don't know any Greeks. I'm not a traditional student.

Instructors enforce general policy, but are willing to make exceptions in special circumstances and help you keep your grades up.
College Senior 2013-02-12T02:37:50Z
It is pretty decent, for the size of the college, you cannot expect much more.
College Senior 2013-02-12T02:30:59Z
I really love Mount Mercy University. I have been to 3 colleges prior, and nothing beats the small classroom atmosphere, with the thoughtful teachers that fill campus

The upper classmen dorms and great and the freshmen dorms are not bad at all they are just getting older and require some patients in the winter they get a little warm.

I love where Mt Mercy is located in a residential area so i always feel safe here. We are far enough away from the big highways and streets that its quite at night and traffic is not too heavy in the area. We are maybe ten minutes from the mall and walmart so every thing a student could need is within reach.

It is Iowa, where we can experience snow and rain within 12 hours ans weather changes frequently and cause potential dangerous travel conditions. Mt Mercy recognizes that a portion of students and faculty commute and classes are cancelled if conditions are treacherous. However, commuting students and faculty use discretion and judgement in the event that classes are not cancelled.

Mt Mercy University is nestled in the north Cedar Rapids residential community and is close to interstate 380. Restaurants and shopping centers are in close proximity and hospital and health facilities such as St Luke's and Mercy Medical Center.

Health & Safety:
Small class size and campus security is present but environment is safe and there is a safe comfort level on campus.
College Junior 2013-01-22T04:06:24Z
There is usually something to do on campus so you dont have to worry about transportation if you live on campus. I dont really get bored
College Junior 2013-01-22T04:02:46Z
The food at mount mercy can sometime get old, but thats going to happen anywhere. There are late night options during the week for those late night study sessions and the dining hall isopen at convinient hours.
