About this Event: In recent weeks, students have participated in a naming contest. The list has been narrowed and a name has been selected.
The big question around campus is, will it be “Eugene” the Eutectic, “Mortimer” the Eutectic, “Pestel Pete” the Eutectic, “Rex” the Eutectic, or “Thumper” the Eutectic?
In August, the College unveiled a newly designed Eutectic, which has the dubious distinction of being among the nation’s worst team names, according to Time.com. So, just what is a Eutectic? It describes the scientific process of two solids being combined to form a liquid.
The College has five sports teams and is a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).
About St. Louis College of Pharmacy: Founded in 1864, St. Louis College of Pharmacy is one of the oldest and largest colleges of pharmacy in America.
