Meet Adelaide Our Mascot-in-Trianing

Our new mascot-in-training has been adopted and we are pleased to announce that, for the first time in our history, it’s a girl!

She will be in training with Thurber throughout the 2017-18 academic year, following which time Thurber will become our mascot emeritus. He and his handler, Professor Beth Doolittle, will continue to make appearances at campus events.

Our mascot-in-training, whose handler is Mary Littlejohn, assistant director of alumni and community relations, has selected as her “platform,” the encouragement of more rescue animal adoptions, especially of bulldogs. More information will be provided in the coming weeks.
