Founder's Day Athletic History

In 1918-19, the Bison was adopted as the school mascot. In an article in the new student newspaper, named The Bison, a student writer said, “The Bison, a native of this section of the country, is a hardy animal capable of putting up a great fight, rather slow to anger, but when aroused is very active and strong willed. These are some of the qualities it is hoped the ‘Bisons’ will acquire. The teams, whether athletic or debating, must be strong, good natured, but willing and ready to put their full strength into combat when the test comes.”
