Mascot Makeover

Bucky, Barry’s beloved mascot, is feeling good these days. The University’s half-parrot, halfpirate mascot took a sabbatical after he literally “lost his head” and has returned with a muchneeded makeover, which was unveiled to excited students, faculty and staff at Moonlight Madness on November 6. It was the first time Barry’s freshmen and sophomore classes had even seen Bucky! Now he’s back and better than ever, boasting a more elaborate pirate wardrobe with bright accents of red, blue and green. The mascot first debuted 17 years ago at a women’s volleyball game at the Health & Sports Center. At the debut in 1996, Bucky had not been named. Students were asked to suggest names and the moniker was announced a few weeks later. Since then, Bucky has been cheering on Barry and will continue to do so for years to come!
