Bear Connections is an opportunity to learn how financial aid works at Mercer University, understand classroom expectations and the student-faculty relationship, and to acquire the skills to navigate Canvas, Mercer’s online course system for students. During the program you will begin to build a network of resources that will help you start your Mercer journey on the right path. At Bear Connections, you will find out more about:
- Financial aid and scholarships
- Canvas and MyMercer
- Academic writing and Math Enhancement Sessions
- And many other resources!
We strongly recommend that you take advantage of this opportunity to work with Mercer staff before your classes begin.
