2000/2001 Common Data Set
This document is a standard response to college guides and other surveys requesting information about Mercer University. It provides a quick and easy way to find out basic information about Mercer. The document follows the format of the Common Data Set (CDS) which was developed based on cooperation between publishers (College Board, Wintergreen/Orchard House, Peterson's and U.S. News and World Report) and colleges. The CDS format has been modified where necessary to fit Mercer's unique organizational characteristics. Supplemental information is included to answer other commonly asked questions.
Mercer University was founded in 1833 and is the second largest Baptist-affiliated institution in the world. Programs at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level are offered. Mercer's main campus is located in Macon, a city of 120,000 residents that serves as the educational, medical, cultural and commercial hub of Central Georgia. Atlanta is the home of Mercer's Cecil B. Day Campus. Five off-campus centers located in the Atlanta and Central Georgia areas offer degree tracks for non-traditional students. Some sections of the CDS are focused on Mercer's traditional, undergraduate, Macon campus student population only and are so noted.
