Mercer Firsts

Starting the first year of college is an exciting accomplishment for all Mercerians, but for first-generation (FG) college students this experience can be especially meaningful. Mercer recognizes that you will face unique experiences as you begin this journey, and we look forward to supporting you!

The Mercer Firsts Program is a community of FG freshmen committed to attaining success at Mercer.  The program connects each participant with an experienced mentor, a community of support, and guidance throughout the first year of college.
