Eutectic the Mascot
The mascot of STLCOP is the Eutectic, a gremlin-looking creature holding a mortar and pestle. "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 voted the fourth most unique mascot in the country by ESPN.
