Back to Class with Griff II

Meet Griff II, Drake University's new live mascot during a live virtual event.

Griff II (aka George) stepped into the Live Mascot role this summer as Griff I is now happily living the retired life. Griff II is a two-year-old English bulldog, and brings playful energy to his role of recruitment ambassador, campus celebrity, and beloved community figure. Erin Bell, director of the Live Mascot Program, will provide an update on the program and insights into life with Griff II, and answer your questions. (Please submit your questions via the Qualtrics link in your registration confirmation email.)

When: Tuesday, September 29 at 6:30 pm CDT
Where: Blackboard Collaborate (Note: A link to join will be emailed prior to the start of the event. You do not need to download any software or have a web camera.) 

About the Program: Back to Class features speakers from Drake's campus in a virtual setting. Bulldogs are invited to join from wherever they are to learn about unique topics, hear from voices on campus, and connect with the Drake community.
