Texas A&M-San Antonio asking city to decide mascot, colors

Texas A&M University-San Antonio is asking the local community to help decide the new campus’ official mascot and school colors.

The university is in the process of developing its first full-fledged campus in South San Antonio, culminating years worth of work by local leaders to gain the first four-year institution of higher learning on the South Side.

The university has set up two Web sites (Vote for the future mascot of Texas A&M University-San Antonio, Vote for the future colors of Texas A&M University-San Antonio) to accept online votes. Voting is open until Sept. 8. Students, faculty and staff participated in a selection process to narrow down 2,000 suggestions for a mascot and school colors. The community is asked to choose from the Defenders, the Lobos, Toros and the Jaguars. The school color choices are black, dark blue and maroon.

The Texas Legislature in 2009 voted to establish the Texas A&M San Antonio campus as a separate, stand-alone university. It previously functioned as an extension campus of Texas A&M-Kingsville.

Texas A&M University-San Antonio will unveil the winning selections at an official ceremony later this fall.
