Goucher’s old mascot design

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.”
