Timeline & Selection

Timeline and Selection Process

The nominating process for mascot suggestions begins Wednesday, March 15 and will close on Sunday, April 2, 2017. Alumni, students, faculty and staff may make suggestions.

The Mascot Committee will winnow down the many suggestions received to no more than three semifinalists and present to OC Nation for final comments.

After receiving feedback from various constituent groups, the Mascot Committee will bring a recommendation to the Olivet College Cabinet for consideration.

The new Olivet College Athletics brand identity will be revealed Wednesday, April 19.


Submissions will be evaluated on the following criteria. The new mascot should:

  • represent positive qualities, ideals or associations around which people can rally;
  • be broadly relevant across the Olivet College community, the student body and generations of alumni;
  • work equally well for women’s and men’s sports teams; and
  • have the potential to translate in a visually pleasing manner.

Any questions about the submission/selection process should be directed to mascot@olivetcollege.edu.
