Governors State University campus expands, mascot needed

April 9, 2014 (UNIVERSITY PARK, Ill.)

The school received more than 400 suggestions, but says the next mascot will be the Bengals, the Prairie Wolves, the Jaguars or the Gladiators. The one that's chosen will be the school's first mascot.

Community members can vote for their favorite designs. Voting starts online at www.govst.edu/mascotmatchup on Monday and ends on April 14.

The final choice will be a combination of university input and community opinion. It will be unveiled May 6.

The University is expanding its campus building the school's first student residence hall. GSU has also renovated its gym, which includes a competitive level floor in anticipation of its mascot and athletic teams.
