Mercer Society

Multiple Dates

In fall 2018, St. Louis College of Pharmacy and its Alumni Association created an affinity chapter for senior alumni to create more opportunities for them to become, and stay, engaged with friends, the College, its students and health care.

The Mercer Society Senior Alumni Chapter will be geared towards our alumni ages 65 and older and focus on unique life-long learning, service and travel. The chapter will allow us to build upon what our alumni enjoyed about the Gold Alumni Chapter. As with each of our affinity chapters, programming is open to all and Mercer Society members are also encouraged to attend other Alumni Association events.

Upcoming Programming

Parking will be available for all on-campus events in the Children's Place Garage. Update your email address to stay up to date on events and news from the College.
