Masks are required as the campus is at red status.

Bears as UCA Mascot!

The black bear that recently visited a residence near campus reminded me how fortunate we are that the black bear is UCA’s mascot.  As many of you know, UCA did not have a mascot until 1920.  Before then, sports writers referred to our athletic teams as, Tutors, Teachers, Normalites, The Normal Eleven, Pea Pickers and Pedagogues.

Below you will find an article that was written when sports writers called us The Pedagogues.

GO BEARS, sounds much more appropriate than GO PEDAGOGUES!!
