There’s a place where catching sight of a cape-wearing bulldog is an ordinary event. Where a certain rock is ambushed by one group on a regular basis, only to be vigorously defended by another. Where you can wake up to the sounds of “dayump dayadee yahoo” just outside your window.

That place is the University of Redlands. And these are just some of our traditions.

The time-honored customs we celebrate don’t just set us apart from other institutions—they enrich the Redlands experience for everyone. Whether you’re taking a selfie with our bulldog mascot, reciting the “Och Tamale” chant after a touchdown or singing the alma mater in the Quad, you’re not just connecting to the University—you’re connecting with one another.
