Stone engraved plaque for Jesse Mercer

Every year, a new group of undergraduate students embarks on a “Pilgrimage to Penfield” to see Mercer University‘s origins in Penfield, Georgia. Normally, they travel by bus to the University’s first home for a day of history and celebration, but this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students participated in the following virtual tour from Five Star Stadium.
