Last semester, in Fall 2016, Goucher College announced that they were re-designing the school’s mascot. The new mascot is a stylized blue and yellow gopher, however the full design has not yet been released. In a statement released to The Goucher Eye, Director of Athletics Geoffrey Miller said, due to the changes made there was “a desire to have a completely fresh start with the name, look and design.”
On February 16, the Athletic Department surprised the school by announcing that they were planning to re-name the mascot as well. Mortimer, the Goucher gopher will end up with one of these four monikers based on student votes.
