The Mascot

The Eutectic is a gremlin-looking creature holding a mortar and pestle ( [ see Mascot page] ). "The 'Eutectic' describes the scientific process of two solids being combined to form a liquid. A common term in pharmacy, it is the perfect metaphor for the St. Louis College of Pharmacy’s intercollegiate athletic program— combining athletics and a demanding academic program. The Eutectic is depicted in its very own lab coat, with a fierce expression ready for the competition." The Eutectic was once recognized as the most esoteric mascot in the country by ESPN [cite news | first=David | last=Lloyd | coauthors= | title=Eagles, Tigers and Gorloks, oh my! | date= | publisher= | url = | work's Page 2 | pages = | accessdate = 2007-05-02 | language = ] .
