Introducing Gulliver: California Coast University’s New Official Mascot

When California Coast University decided to create a mascot, we had to think about who or what we wanted it to be. We thought “California Coast” “coastline” “ocean” something that would relate to our name and the coast. In our logo, there was a seagull and we thought let's choose the seagull for our mascot.

Next, our seagull needed to have a name. We launched a competition at the University for faculty and staff to name the “gull.” After the votes were counted, the winning name was “Gulliver.” We thought the name was perfect because Gulliver, as in Gulliver’s Travels, would be traveling around the country with different staff members to events and meeting the public.

As we are still putting the finishing touches on Gulliver, we will keep you posted on his launch date. Also, watch for Gulliver’s Facebook page where he will keep our students and graduates updated on his travels.

For more information on Gulliver’s creator, please read this article on Angela Cenina, California Coast University Registrar, faculty member, and artist.
