Mercer Mingles

Mingles and Tailgates

Mercer Mingles

Mercer Mingles are community alumni events. The Mercer University Alumni Association, as well as hosts and sponsors, organize social and networking events in cities across the United States. Mingles are informal events where alumni can connect with each other, swap stories and learn about what is happening across Mercer's campuses and programs. Generally hosted at a local restaurant, country club or other venue, there is sometimes a small fee to attend and heavy hors d'ouevres and light refreshments are provided. To host or sponsor a Mercer Mingle where you live, email the Alumni Association for more information.
