Mercer University - Be the Bear


Resources for Parents

Mercer puts your student's needs first - academically, physically, and emotionally.

During this important time of transition for the family, many parents put their own feelings and reactions on hold while helping their son or daughter prepare for university life. Attending to your own emotional needs, however, as well as your student's, will go a long way toward helping everyone feel comfortable with the challenges that going to college represents.
