UIS May Change Mascot, Team Names
UIS May Change Mascot, Team Names

What is a Cosmo? What is a Prairie Star?  It seems many people don’t know what the UIS’s mascot or team names mean so the Student Government Association is running a survey to possibly change the names.  SGA President Aaron Mulvey says 75-percent of the respondents to a previous survey wanted a change.

“The survey gave us the results that people wanted a change and so that’s why we created a task force to take up the issue” says Mulvey.

Six names are in the running.  Three informational public forums will be held for students and the community.  More information can be found on the schools website  (uis.edu)
