Peacock Mascot

The Peacock, Our Mascot

By definition, a mascot is a person or thing that is supposed to bring good luck or that is used to symbolize a particular event or organization. Fr. Robert Gannon, S.J. selected the peacock as the mascot for Saint Peter’s University as a symbol of rebirth after it reopened in 1930. Considering the area was founded by Michael Reyniersz Pauw, whose surname means peacock, it was a fitting symbol for our university. 

Our Project

The peacock mascot is used at open houses to encourage and engage prospective students to consider Saint Peter’s and at campus​,​ athletic ​and alumni ​events to promote spirit and pride in ​the University.This causes a lot of wear and tear on the ​costume. The current peacock mascot costume needs to be replaced.

Why give?

The peacock embodies spirit at Saint Peter's. We need your support to help the Saint Peter's peacock maintain the tradition of promoting pride. We are reaching out to students, alumni and friends to help us reach our goal of $6,000 for a new costume for our mascot. 

In support of our students' fundraising efforts, Dr. Eileen Poiani, special assistant to the president, has offered to match the first $2,000 toward the $6,000 goal for this project!
