Governors State University has narrowed its choices for an official mascot down to four: the Bengals, the Prairie Wolves, the Jaguars and the Gladiators. If you haven’t had a chance to vote for one, now is the time to do it by visiting www.govst.edu/mascotmatchup. Voting closes as of midnight April 14.
The university is soliciting the help of students, faculty, staff and the extended community once again for help in making a selection.
The final choice for the GSU mascot will be a combination of the community and university input.
By going to that web address, voters will see the four groups of designs, one for each mascot. Voters will vote for one group in its entirety, not just one image. Be sure to see the story ABC Channel 7’s Theresa Gutierrez did on our mascot search at http://abclocal.go.com/wls/video?id=9498215
Anyone can vote for one of the final four as many times as they want. A combination of the votes tallied and university officials’ input will ultimately determine who the very first GSU mascot is.
The official announcement of the university mascot is scheduled for the first week of May. Prizes will go to those who submitted the four finalists.
