Indiana University Fort Wayne asks community to help choose mascot

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - Indiana University is on the hunt for a campus mascot and is asking the community for ideas.

Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) split in 2018, leaving Purdue Fort Wayne with IPWF's old Mastodon mascot.

IUFW is now ready to name a mascot that encompasses the school's history and will be a source of identity for students.

“As IU Fort Wayne continues to grow and establish ourselves within the Fort Wayne community, we are now looking to identify a mascot that not only provides an identity for our campus staff and students, but also unites us with the Greater Fort Wayne community,” said Jake Huffman, Assistant Director of Student Engagement, Success and Retention at IU Fort Wayne.
