The Alli Bio
Almost a century ago, in 1931, San Francisco State welcomed Alli Gator into the world. Through the decades, Alli’s energy, charisma, and spirit have made an indelible mark on students, faculty, and staff alike.
In 2023, Alli decided to take a brief hiatus. And guess what? They came back with a dazzling glow-up, complete with brand new, shiny scales! Alli’s heart has always been about inspiring students to invest in themselves, their dreams, and their education.
Alli’s adventures also take them to Oracle Park, where they meet up with their partner-in-crime, Lou Seal (the San Francisco Giants mascot). Together, they love exploring the city, cheering for the Giants, and indulging in some mouth-watering Ghirardelli Sundaes.
And oh, next time you bump into Alli on the SF State campus, take a moment to admire those chic SF State purple nails!
In wrapping up our Alli Gator spotlight, we can confidently say that SF State looks forward to another century of Alli’s charm, bringing vibrancy and representing the amazing world of its diverse student body.
There you have it – a closer look at the life and times of Alli Gator. So the next time you spot them at an SF State game or event, give a wave and share a cheer!
