Lee: By the time I started visiting college campuses, I already knew Mercer pretty well, and even though I visited other schools, I knew that Mercer was the right fit for me. Having Grace on campus helped me feel right at home from day one. Joining a fraternity also helped me feel at home. It’s given me a network of friends and opportunities that I’ll have for the rest of my life.
Grace: Mercer was the first college that I visited, and it was also the last. The students I met there were the type of people I hoped I would be in college. Becoming very involved from the beginning, I served as a writing preceptor, worked the Admissions Office, was inducted into numerous honor societies, and joined a sorority. I was extremely excited to find out that Lee was going to be a Bear, and I loved sharing my Mercer experience with him.
