We’re searching for a new mascot, but our nickname won’t change. We are the Tribe.
Think the Tribe nickname will limit our options? Never fear – there are many examples of great nicknames paired with dissimilar mascots:
- The UNC mascot is a Ram and their nickname is the Tarheels.
- The University of Miami mascot is an Ibis and their nickname is the Hurricanes.
- Navy’s mascot is a Goat and their nickname is the Midshipmen.
So no limits. Perhaps, compared to some, Tribe is easy – consider the Roanoke College Maroons. What’s a maroon? What goes with Maroons? Yeah, that’ll be one to watch.
