Serve others and reconnect with Mercer through the Mercer On Mission experience for alumni! In 2007, Mercer began to offer students this unique study abroad option, which is a culmination of service learning and travel abroad. Service learning is a pillar of Mercer's foundation; therefore, it is only fitting to offer our alumni the same opportunity. On this inaugural trip, with the assistance of the Fuller Center – Global Builders, alumni will travel to Peru to assist with the building of homes for the Peruvian people.
This trip has very limited availability. The cost of the trip is $800 plus airfare. Registration deadline is Friday, May 30. To learn more, visit the website of the Fuller Center, one of our Mercer On Mission program partners.

Home to Ulysses’ mythical sirens, the Amalfi Coast still calls out to visitors with its incredible beauty.
