Cosmo: The Evolution of a Cougar

Cosmo Cougar made his debut in 1953, and in 2016 he’s in better shape than ever before. This entertaining photo exhibition highlights changes in Cosmo’s costume over the last six decades, showing the evolution of the mascot’s outfit.

Attentive visitors are invited to identify the subtle differences from year to year and to evaluate the physical appearance of the university’s famous feline. There’s a possibility that a few lucky visitors may even have a photo opportunity with Cosmo on home football game days.
