One thing I wished I knew before Orientation: That it’s okay to be completely yourself! It’s okay to be nervous about making new friends, but if you are just yourself then I promise you’ll find your people!
Why I chose Merrimack: I knew Merrimack was going to be my home away from home the second I stepped on campus. The small size and personalized feel from the start made me confident that I could easily find my place in the Merrimack community.
