Besides combining soccer, studies, and English, the personal relationships I made here are the most valuable experience. I’ve grown as an athlete and as a person, and I will always be thankful for the opportunity to study at Mount Mercy.

Attending Mount Mercy turned out to be one of the best decisions I've made thus far. Aside from the wonderful classroom atmosphere, social activities, and diverse campus, MMU helped me realize my passion for service too.
