Presentation College Saints Have New Mascot
College President Margaret Huber says officials at the Aberdeen school have been talking about the move for more than a year. She says it's an opportunity to create a new symbol for the college.
Administrators say the St. Bernard breed is known for being people-oriented, strong and friendly, and will symbolize qualities of the college.
The mascot will appear at athletic events, parades, student orientations and special events. The college is holding a contest to name the female dog.
