Monty the Mountaineer

Monty the Mountaineer

In the spring of 2007, an EOU mascot committee was formed representing various campus groups including student government, student clubs, the EOU Alumni Association, and athletics to bring forth a recommendation to university leadership regarding the revival of a mascot tradition for the campus. The committee also received input from EOU’s Office of Multicultural Affairs.

A symbol of the region and the university nickname, Monty the Mountaineer is used to increase fan engagement and excitment at athletic events, create memorable experiences at student recruitment and alumni receptions, and provide EOU with an exciting new face at parades and other public events.

Monty made its public debut at the EOU vs. Warner Pacific College basketball games on January 25, 2008.
