Founders’ Day began in 1891, 20 years after the University moved from Penfield to Macon, as a celebration centered on Jesse Mercer’s birthday. Mercer’s two competing literary societies, Phi Delta and Ciceronian, each brought in a speaker to honor the heritage of Mercer and its founder. Founders' Day remained a significant annual event for Mercer for the next 40 to 50 years and had different formats, ranging from political events attended by state governors to all-day historic celebrations. Interest began to fade in the 1950s, and the event had been removed from the University calendar by the late 1960s. The Student Government Association revived Founders’ Day in the mid-1990s. Now, a prominent Mercerian is invited back to the University each year to share how Mercer has influenced his or her life.

Mercer professors Dr. Carol Bokros and Dr. Jeff Hugdahl read a holiday story in front of decorated Christmas trees during the Christmas tree lighting event at Willingham Hall in 2018.
