Over 100 academic programs

Values that last a lifetime
Founded by the Order of St. Augustine in 1947, Merrimack continues to uphold the Catholic Augustinian values of social justice, scholarship, and service. Merrimack is committed to providing students with opportunities to develop intellectually, spiritually, socially, and ethically. Students perform more than 50,000 service hours every year through organizations such as MerrimAction, Alternative Spring Break, and Relay For Life.

From college to career
The O’Brien Center for Career Development provides one-on-one career advice; access to “best-fit” internships, co-ops, and jobs; and a chance to take part in our two-day Professional Development Retreat for juniors and seniors. Within nine months of graduation, 97% of our 2015 graduates were employed, in graduate school, or completing a year of service.

Small-town community, big-city access
Merrimack’s expansive 220-acre campus is located in a picturesque suburban community 25 miles from Boston. Recent additions to campus include two new residential villages; Writers House; Bloomberg-equipped
markets lab; state-of-the-art health science, physics, and engineering labs; and a world-class athletic training facility.

“At merrimack you don’t just mean something to a single person. you mean something to many people. what we have at merrimack is special. We are family.”
