Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring guests?

Absolutely! Each student may bring up to 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.

Will there be lunch?

Yes! We will provide a complimentary lunch for you and your guest.

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.

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.
