What do you think about Manhattan College’s search for a mascot?

I think it’s pretty cool but I just hope they pick the right mascot for the school.

What do you think the right mascot for the school would be?

I think the right mascot for this school would be a student, dressed up like a brother and he has a cross which he could hold up to the student section and everyone just shuts up and he yells “J-A-S-P-E-R-S” and everyone yells “JASPERS” and just goes back to cheering.

So you think that would pump everyone up at a game?

Oh yeah! That’s also what a Jasper is; he was a Brother, so it only makes sense.

What do you not want to see as a mascot?

I don’t want to see a squirrel as a mascot at all. I might transfer my senior year if I see a squirrel as a mascot.

What do you think about Manhattan College’s search for a mascot?

I like it. I know we had Brother Jasper before but I think it might be time to move on. I really like the squirrel idea; squirrels are all around MC and I think it’d be a great mascot.

How do you think the atmosphere of games would change if we have a mascot?

I go to a lot of games, I think it’s a great idea. If it were a squirrel mascot, we could have a sign that says “Go Nuts” and I think everyone would actually go nuts.

How do you feel about the fact that Manhattan College is looking for a mascot?

I feel like it’s kinda out of the blue – a little strange, but cute.

Do you think having a mascot that isn’t Brother Jasper will take away from what it means to be a Jasper?

Maybe yes, maybe no. It’s one of those things that we’ll have to see how it goes.

One thought on “Students React to the Mascot Search

  1. We used to be called the Billy Goats because of the constant running up an down the hill to go to class.

    The brother was another one. A bit disrespectful. The Jasper’s don’t need a clown running around. We have a great pep team. We are different. We are Jaspers
