Mascots

 

That first year of classes, choosing a mascot took a backseat as the first Student Government began to organize. After elections were held in March 1969 the student newspaper, FuTUre began to discuss the choice of the mascot. On April 24, 1969 an editorial was entitled, “Are We Doomed to be Citronauts Forever?” and again in October, an editorial warned that the Citronaut might become permanently associated with the University.
