Meet Addie

I am the first female mascot! I am a white and brown pooch that has mastered the art of posing for “selfies” with members of the University community, wearing the school colors maroon and grey, and inspiring U of R fans and athletes in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) competitions.

I was adopted from a lovely family in San Bernardino, who had raised me in their home with their children. I was named after the founding first lady of the University and wife to the first President, Jasper Newton Field. My trainer and best friend is Mary Littlejohn '03, '12. I'm her little sidekick! She is the  Assistant Director of Alumni and Community Relations, and our cause is the encouragement of more rescue animal adoptions, especially of bulldogs.
