Meet Cocky

One of the most revered university traditions is Cocky, our beloved mascot. Cocky embodies our school and community spirit. When he's not on the sidelines beak-flapping on behalf of athletics, he's traveling across the state sharing the joys of reading to elementary school students as part of Cocky's Reading Express.
