Mercer University's Atlanta campus can be easily located in the Chamblee-Dunwoody area of Atlanta, just north of the city and slightly inside the I-285 perimeter. The campus houses several schools including the Southern School of Pharmacy, the Mercer business school, the school of nursing, etc. When you visit you'll find a campus that initially is a bit disappointing and actually failry unappealing to the eye. Reminiscent of a small community college campus, Mercer's Atlanta branch would be an utter disappointment if it weren't for the quality of the academic programs and the friendliness of the people. Ranking in the top 30 in several of their graduate programs, you'll find an strong academic arena located almost within metropolitan Atlanta. Barely a 10-15 minute drive in to downtown, Mercer's location allows it's students to participate in an abundance of opportunities that Atlanta offers from food to culture to sporting events and concerts. For those that are more familiar with Mercer's main campus in Macon, GA, the Atlanta campus is certainly worth a visit and for those looking at universities should definitely be on your list.
