    the school's mascot is the gaspar de portola dude who murdered people :rolleyes:
    the people in the magnet have been trying to get the school to change the mascot...unsuccessfully.
    the graduating class has their own mascot that they choose, ours was between an ugly turtle only two people voted for, Tux the Linux mascot that everyone thought was cute and this horse with a lady next to it who looks like trinity from the matrix...
    it was close...but the horse won. guess what our motto is?! :D "Think Different."

    Aztecs.

    Don't get me started on all the crap we've gone through the past couple of years with a Native American mascot.

    Re: what is your school's mascot?

    I have a Santa Cruz banana slug T-shirt. No, I didn't go to school there. But I dropped in once just to see the campus and came home with the shirt.

    Lots of colleges choose ferocious-sounding animals as mascots. Lions and Tigers are popular, although there seem to be more Eagles than anything else. Some of the less-common animals that serve as college mascots are: Anteaters, Armadillos, Bees, Boll Weevils, Frogs, Griffins, Kangaroos, Koalas, Larks, Pelicans, Scorpions, Sea Gulls, Sea Otters, Spiders, Turtles, and Whales. Oregon Tech's mascot is The Hustlin' Owls. Personally, I never see owls hustle, but maybe they only do so at night.

    I'm not sure what these beasts are:

    * College of the Atlantic Blackflies (Maine)

    * Evergreen State College Geoducks (Washington state)

    Best of all: schools with Jaguars as mascots!

    I just graduated from high school, my mascot was a cavemen and cavegirl. This is because we obviously have the Carlsbad caverns :p

    At my college, New Mexico Tech, I'm going to become a Miner (New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology :p)

    My high schools mascot was a billie goat. We were the Pleasant Hill Billies. Anyone notice the Hill Billy part? Well when the school originaly started in the 1800's it was the Pleasant Hill Hill Billies. They were the first official public school in Oregon.

    in highschool and all previous schools, we were the Warriors, but in college, were the Corsairs (pirates) Our logos and stuff are pretty lame looking, but i think it could potential if designed correctly.

    some pretty emberassing mascots

    i went to 2 high schools everyday. i had one bad ass mascot (The Taylor Alderdice Dragons) and one inexcusably pansy mascott (The CAPA Unicorns)...

    in college i was a Pioneer and a Tartan. Neither school had much going athletically, so it really didn't matter.

    While we may now associate the unicorn with pansy and put it in the category with pretend tea parties. In it's day it was supposed to be a mythical beast of immense power.

    "The Blazers"
    The Rebels vs The Sports Jacket. :eek: :p ;)
