CAPA IRM Stacy Meets Mascots Aubie and Dawg

Jan 23, 2015 1:19:00 PM / by Stephanie Sadler

Words by Stacy Benjamin Wood, a CAPA International Education Institutional Relations Manager. Read more about Stacy in our earlier interview.

For this blog post I’ve been asked to share an unexpected discovery from the road. I’d like to talk about meeting one of the most famous people in the Southeast, the region where I represent CAPA's study abroad programs.

When he arrives, you feel privileged to be there. The energy in the room lifts with his presence. As his website reads, “It is often said women love him, children adore him, and men want to be him.”

I’m speaking of Auburn University’s tiger mascot – Aubie.

My alma matter had a mascot as well, but since we lost most of our games, the Brown University bear would usually just shuffle about in a somewhat forlorn fashion. But Aubie is a rockstar. When I saw him at Auburn’s study abroad fair, he hugged strangers (like me!), played with children, flirted, danced, and generally boosted the spirits of everyone there. I was thoroughly impressed.

If you think that all you need to do is don a furry suit and jump around a bit, you’re underestimating the skill it takes to entertain folks for hours with nonverbal gestures on the fly. It takes a ton of creativity and hard work to do the job well. Have a look at this video from the Auburn University website. If you don’t instantly fall in love with him, you’ve got a heart made of stone (or perhaps you support a rival of Auburn)!
