Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring guests?

Absolutely! Each student may bring up to three 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.

Will there be lunch?

Will you provide tickets to an athletic event?

Yes! Athletic events will vary depending on which Saturday Preview event you attend. Check Mercer's athletic calendar to see which events will occur on the day you are planning to visit campus.

Where should I park?

Parking will vary 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 be in orange polos and will direct you to your parking destination.

Will I get to meet faculty?

Yes! The Bear Bazaar academic resource fair is an opportunity for you to meet faculty and staff from various programs and departments around campus.

What will I see on the tour?
