The search for the new Converse mascot began in earnest September 24, 2007, with the opening of online suggestions. Since then, hundreds of ideas have been made. Among the more interesting suggestions made thus far are:
- Purple Warriors
You can make as many suggestions as you like. We will continue to take suggestions until October 5. From Oct. 8-14, in classic “American Idol” form, Converse will then hold the first round of unlimited online votes for unlimited number of mascot suggestions.
The final round of online voting will be conducted from Oct. 15-21. The new Converse mascot will then be unveiled Oct. 23 during the home volleyball match against Limestone College with a dinner celebration on the campus back lawn. Thus far, the search for a new mascot has certainly captured the imagination of those in the media.
