Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring guests?

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

Should my guest be my parent/guardian?

As you’re preparing for college, your parents/guardians may have a lot of questions. This could be a good opportunity for those questions to be answered. But we’ll leave that up to you.

If I haven’t 100% decided to attend Mercer yet, can I still come?

Yes! In fact, we encourage it. Attending Make It Mercer! may help you make your final college decision.

What should I wear?

If you’re choosing between functionality or fashion, definitely go for functionality! Bonus points if you can achieve both.

What will I be doing all day?

Making new friends. Having fun. Walking all over campus.

Will there be lunch?

Yes – we know Bears get hungry, so we’ve got your back, even if you’re an herbivore. You and your guest will enjoy a Taste of Macon lunch, where you can experience food from local Macon restaurants.

What’s the difference between Make It Mercer! and Summer Orientation?

Make It Mercer! is more celebratory in nature, while Summer Orientation provides information to make sure you’re fully prepared for Opening Day in August. (In short, you’ll receive your course schedule at Summer Orientation.)

Where should I park?

Check your email on the week of the event for detailed parking information. Also, when you get to campus, look for the orange polos. They’ll direct you to your parking destination.
