UConn Home University Spirit, Pride, Tradition!

Jonathan the Husky

The University of Connecticut Husky Mascot has been a tradition for decades. From parading about the stands at sporting events, leading parades, and greeting youngsters, to making appearances across the country and ESPN commercials, Jonathan is one of the most recognized and photographed symbols of the pride and spirit of being a Husky. The identities of the student leaders selected to wear the costume remain a secret, even on campus. However, their energy, and fierce but friendly pride shines through!
