Rocky the Red Hawk is proud to introduce to the campus community his new pupscot (a puppy mascot): Pebbles. Just like Rocky, Pebbles, a mini labradoodle, is here to spread Red Hawk Pride to one and all. Keep a sharp lookout for Pebbles at campus activities or just taking a stroll wagging her tail with joy every time she meets a fellow Red Hawk. Many students have shared stories of how much they miss their four-legged friends and what joy it brings them when they see a puppy on campus. We often have dogs at the University for stress management programming once or twice a semester, so why not have that kind of emotional support all-year-round?! Make sure to follow Pebbles on her brand new Instagram @pebblesredhawk and be sure to tag her in any photos you get with her on campus! Woof Woof!
