Outside the Classroom

Explore the world of Mathematics

The Mercer University Mathematics program has incredible opportunities for you to strengthen your personal and professional life. Through our preceptor program, you will work side-by-side with a professor conducting research and sharpening your skills. This includes intensive training that allows you to learn how to explain topics to different audiences.

Additionally, we offer opportunities outside of the Mathematics program for you to grow. We want you to take part in community outreaches, attend conferences, tackle competitions at other institutions, and more. These opportunities enable you to use math in your everyday life, and not just within the traditional classroom setting.

Our professors have seen students transform into not only stronger mathematicians but stronger students and people overall. Taking part in opportunities outside of the classroom enables you to discover how mathematics and the world are intertwined. We firmly believe that your experience at Mercer will exceed your expectations when you allow yourself to learn outside the classroom walls.

Get rewarded for your hard work

We believe that hard work and dedication should be rewarded. That’s why we host an Honors Day each spring. Honors Day serves to honor our best students and encourage others to continue striving to do their best.
