Thurber: Official Mascot

Thurber

The current and official mascot of the University of Redlands is Thurber. He is known as a very active and friendly mascot, and is the subject of a blog called “Thurb’s Blurbs.” HeĀ attends sporting events when possible and is known to give “high fives.”

Thurber is a favorite subject of University photographers and seems to enjoy the considerable attention he receives from the campus community.

When not occupied with their mascot duties, Thurber and sometimes his grandpa, Duke, typically can be found in their kennel at the Willis Center.
