Bear Fair

Bear Fair TableBear Fair occurs the Monday before classes begin each August in the University Center from 4-6pm.

Bear Fair is an annual event at Mercer University designed to introduce our newest Mercerians to the campus, organizations, and the Macon area.

Organizations must be renewed for the 2018/2019 school year to register for a table.

The link to register for student organizations will be sent to all renewed organization presidents in June.

If you are a volunteer organization or non-profit please DO NOT REGISTER for Bear Fair. Please see the Volunteer Fair website to register for that event.

Completion of a form does not guarantee registration. You will receive an email confirmation or email notifying you of your status on a wait list. Please allow a week to receive the confirmation email.

Please note that table space is limited, and organizations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Non-renewed organizations will not be allowed to participate. Please see the student organization web page and follow the link to the renewal document.

 As a Bear Fair participant, you will be have one covered (plastic table covering) 6 ft. or 8 ft. table (length of table is dependent on availability). Chairs will be available on a first come, first serve basis. You are encouraged to bring as much flair for your table as possible.  In the past, some organizations have attracted students with food, drinks, giveaways (pens, notepads, trinkets, etc.), and prize drawings. Please keep in mind that electrical sources will be limited so we may not be able to grant requests for electricity. Also, please be aware that your table display cannot promote drugs and/or alcohol, or contain offensive materials.
