Bobcat Statue

Bobcat Statue

The Bobcat statue, located between the Taylor-Murphy Building and the Psychology Building, was installed in October 2008. The bronze statue was commissioned by the Associated Student Government and created by noted sculptor Matthew Palmer of Friday Harbor, Washington.

The university adopted the Bobcat as its mascot in 1921. The Bobcat, known for its fierceness and courage, was recommended by a committee formed to raise school spirit.
