Hey, Alexander!

Last week, the Student Assembly conducted what it hoped would be its final student survey for the Dartmouth mascot. Yet, the poll results still did not seem to give SA a mandate to establish any campus symbol. While the moose captured 35.4% of the vote, 24.9% of people surveyed said that they were not satisfied with any of the mascot suggestions (14.0% wanted a Dr. Seuss character, 11.2% wanted the Yeti, 9.1% wanted the Salty Dog, and 4.5% wanted the Foresters).

In this final poll, it is important to note that some people seem unclear about the mascot search. No matter what the outcome, our official team nickname WILL remain the Big Green (not the moose). Our intention has never been to replace our nickname or our rallying cry.

This mascot project started with you, the student body. Now you have to decide whether you want the moose or whether Dartmouth should remain without a mascot. In this last phase of student polling, we would like to hear where you now stand. Whether or not we adopt a mascot, we will remain the Dartmouth Big Green (our official nickname).

WOULD YOU BE SATISFIED WITH THE MOOSE AS DARTMOUTH’S MASCOT?
