One Thing You Wished You Knew Before Orientation

One thing I wish I knew before attending Orientation is that the people I would meet would become some of my first friends here at Merrimack. Meeting new incoming students was so easy because everyone wanted to get to know each other and leave with valuable friendships. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone, you’ll be thankful you did!

Why I Chose Merrimack

 I chose Merrimack because I heard the word “Community” a lot and that’s exactly what made it feel like home. I couldn’t think of a better word to describe our campus culture, it truly is a tight-knit community unlike many other colleges. Whether it’s seeing a friendly face at an athletic game or someone holding the door for you on your way to class, you are sure to feel the sense of community here at Merrimack.
