Rocky Needs a New Suit!

This campaign ends on March 31 at 12:59AM EDT

It's a lot of work being the top dog at Western Illinois University!

With hundreds of events and personal appearances each year, from sporting events to classroom visits and community functions, our beloved Rocky, the heart and soul of Western, is one of the hardest working mascots around. With that comes considerable wear and tear on Rocky’s duds!

You can show your love for Rocky in a big way by contributing to the purchase of a new suit for the big guy!

A typical mascot suit has a lifespan of approximately two years, and while there is no danger of our Rocky going away, it’s time to get our favorite mascot something new to wear - that’s where you can help!

Funds raised through this campaign will help to fund the purchase of a new suit to keep the big guy looking sharp both on and off campus.

Additional funds raised above and beyond the goal amount will go towards a protective case for Rocky’s gear to keep him looking great for years to come!

Your name on our donor wall shows your love for Rocky! Please make your gift today!

Go Leathernecks!!!
