September 2019: Cuyahoga Community College – Stomp The Triceratops
Stomp the Triceratops
Stomp the Triceratops, the first costumed mascot at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®), stepped onto campus today in a much-anticipated debut. The big entrance took place at Tri-C’s Metropolitan Campus Center.
The “real-life” reveal comes nearly a year after students, alumni and staff selected Triceratops as the school’s new mascot. A second online poll in March named the mascot Stomp.
“A mascot has the power to raise the spirit of the entire College community,” Tri-C President Alex Johnson said. “Stomp is strong, confident and bold — qualities that reflect who we are at Cuyahoga Community College.”
Tri-C worked with Street Characters to bring the three-horned dinosaur to life. The company has created costumed characters for organizations and sports teams, including Chomp for the Cleveland Browns.
Stomp — colored in Tri-C’s trademark teal — seems ideally suited to represent the College. The stout dinosaur was created as a formidable yet likeable creature capable of firing up crowds and stealing hearts.
No other college or university features a dinosaur mascot, making Stomp unique in a crowd of so many bears, lions and eagles.
