Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring guests?

Absolutely! Each student may bring two guests. If another high school student is planning to attend with you, we ask that they register as well.

What should I wear?

You will be walking around campus throughout the day, so we recommend comfortable shoes and casual clothes. Since you will be inside and outside, check the weather before you come.

Where should I park?

Parking varies for each event, so check your email leading up to the event for detailed parking information. Also, when you arrive on campus, our student staff will direct you to your parking destination.

What will I see on the tour?

The campus tour gives you a student’s perspective on life at Mercer. You’ll see everything from our dining facilities to the fitness center, our historic Quad, Mercer Village, Cruz Plaza, and the new science center.
