Opportunity Scholars

WELCOME INCOMING FRESHMEN!

The Opportunity Scholars Pre-Orientation Activity begins before the normal Fall Orientation and will give you a head start on your Mercer career.  Through mock college courses, Mercer faculty and staff members will teach you the skills you will need to be a successful Mercer student.  Specific workshops, such as study tips, time management, and stress management, as well as academic assessments will be presented. The last part of the program consists of getting to know others, learning your way around campus, and meeting other Mercer students. You will receive one hour of academic credit for participating in the program.
