Favorite thing about Merrimack: My favorite thing about Merrimack is the people here. Walking anywhere on campus most likely I’ll see a familiar face and that’s part of what makes this campus feel like home. There are so many ways to get involved which has allowed me to meet great people and participate in things I’m passionate about.
Why did you choose Merrimack: I will never forget the first time I came to Merrimack for Admitted Students Day and instantly wanted to be a part of this community. Deciding where to go to college during a pandemic was discouraging in many ways and Merrimack and the feeling I got the first time I came here gave me hope. I applied to 10 nursing programs; none felt like home quite like Merrimack nursing. The amazing faculty, state of the art facility, and endless potential to grow and cultivate a one of a kind community. It was undoubtedly what I wanted to be part of and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.
