Iowa Private College Week provides glimpse of life at MMU

Mount Mercy University invites high school students and their families to visit campus during Iowa Private College Week, August 3-7. Prospective students will have the opportunity to tour campus, meet with professors, coaches and current students, and learn about the university’s exciting academics and campus life. Sessions are available at 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. each day of the week.

IPCW is the perfect opportunity for college-interested students to tour one of two Iowa colleges to receive a top 150 spot on Money magazine’s “Best Colleges” list. The Time-affiliated magazine ranked Mount Mercy 147 out of 1,500 four-year colleges, beating out every other Iowa school in the list’s value-added category. The university was also named one of “The 50 Best Colleges That You Can Actually Get Into."

“Iowa Private College Week provides prospective students an inside look at life at Mount Mercy University,” said Terri Crumley, dean of admissions. “Visiting campus gives students a great opportunity to see if MMU is a good fit for their educational goals, explore our beautiful campus, and meet with our wonderful students, faculty, and staff. Even more, they’ll have the chance to get a glimpse of why the university was ranked so high on Money’s ‘Best Colleges’ list!”

All IPCW visitors will receive a free t-shirt and have the chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card. Lunch will be provided for those in the morning session and snacks will be offered for those attending the afternoon block.

To help cover travel costs during the week, Casey’s General Stores will provide 5-cent per gallon fuel discount coupons at each campus. In addition, students who visit at least three schools and mail in an entry form are entered for a chance to win a $500 bookstore voucher.

Mount Mercy offers over 35 majors and minors that promise the outstanding education needed to build strong careers. With residence halls, suites and apartments nestled on a green hilltop, Mount Mercy presents a vibrant community for on-campus living. The university hosts six graduate programs in addition to traditional, accelerated and online undergraduate coursework.
