Meet Adelaide, our Mascot-in-Training."Addie" has been adopted and we are pleased to announce that for the first time in our history, it’s a girl! She was named for the founding first lady of the University and wife to the first President, Jasper Newton Field.
She will be in training with Thurber throughout the 2017-18 academic year, then 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 '03, '12, Assistant Director of Alumni and Community Relations, has selected the encouragement of more rescue animal adoptions, especially of bulldogs as her platform.
Addie is a popular gal so put your request in early!
Who doesn't want to color their very own Thurber and Addie?
