Consideration of changing the UC Davis mascot from the mustang to a cow
Cow4Mascot aims to promote a change in UC Davis’s official mascot, Gunrock the Mustang, to a cow. It does not aim to change the student body or athletics’ name of “Aggies”. In 1993 and 1997, elections were held considering other ballot measures regarding the mascot. There is a clear historical precedent at UC Davis for students to periodically hold ballot measures to express their will over the mascot that represents them. Having another such election in 2022 aligns with that same precedent.
