Bradley University announced last month that the gargoyle was selected as our new mascot. After a two-year process of surveys and focus groups, our students, faculty, staff, alumni and supporters had given a clear and strong desire to have a mascot.
The more than 3,200 survey responses showed overwhelming support for a mascot with the favored choice being the gargoyle. Based on robust response and institutional tradition the “Braves” nickname will remain.
We are engaging the wider Bradley community in an effort to identify a name for the gargoyle mascot. Please submit your ideas for a mascot name at Bradley.edu/NameOurMascot. You will be able to enter three name choices (serious submissions only, please). The survey will be closed at 5 p.m. CSTFriday, November 22.
Stay tuned for results of our naming survey, the official launch and unveiling of the mascot. We appreciate your participation and support throughout the process.
