New UTRGV mascot making in person appearances


RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – The new UTRGV mascot announced earlier this summer is making its first round of in-person appearances.

According to university officials, the design of the mascot’s outfit was created entirely by student designers from the theater department. A committee made up of students and staff began working on the mascot in 2015.

The mascot serves as an ambassador for the university and can be expected to be found at both campuses and off-campus community events.
