    New Student Orientation

    On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students of Mercer University, I would like to welcome you to our family! The mission of Mercer University is “To Teach, To Learn, To Create, To Discover, To Inspire, To Empower, and To Serve.” We hope that as a student at Mercer, you will make tremendous gains personally and professionally by engaging in every aspect of our mission.  
    To assist you as a new student, you must attend New Student Orientation prior to your enrollment. You will meet with your academic advisor to register for your courses, if you have not registered prior. You will also have the opportunity to meet with the Office of Financial Planning to discuss your financial aid package. Please refrain from bringing guests to orientation.

    Douglas County Regional Academic Center located at
    975 Blairs Bridge Road, Lithia Springs, GA 30122
    Orientation will begin at 4:00 p.m.


    NOTE: Education majors must attend a 5:00 p.m. orientation in addition to the 4:00 p.m. general orientation.

    Again, welcome to the Mercer University family!
