That’s right, our mascot is Peter the Anteater, based on the anteater in the Johnny Hart comic strip, “B.C.” Every time the anteater feasted upon an ant in the comic, his tongue made the “zot!” sound effect.
Zot culture permeates the campus. At athletic events, students chant “Zot! Zot! Zot!” We even have a special ‘Anteater’ hand signal to show campus spirit – simply touch the tips of your two middle fingers with your thumb, slide the thumb back, and raise your pinky and index fingers. The middle fingers represent the anteater’s snout and the other two fingers make the ears. Watch a video tutorial.
Hey, when we said we liked differences, we meant it. Once you become an Anteater, you will be part of a supportive, tight-knit family for the rest of your life. And you will feel that as soon as you step on campus.
