Weather Alert

Due to the forecast of strong storms across the region, the University will have an early dismissal today, Monday, May 16, at 3 p.m. at all Kean USA campuses. Offices will close at 3 p.m. No activities will take place after 3 p.m. Essential personnel should report to work as required.

Name that Cougar

Some people call me Roary. Others call me Ken. Most people don’t know what to call me and simply shout, “Hey Cougar!”

As the Kean Cougar mascot, I am full of spirit and love for Kean, but I have no name. Can you help me?

I am inviting all Kean students, alumni, faculty and staff to submit ideas for my new name.

If your submission is chosen, you’ll win a Kean hoodie, a social media story with yours truly and bragging rights to last a lifetime. 

Some things to keep in mind:

  • I represent Kean students, including student-athletes. So my name should be positive and maybe a little bit fun.
  • The Kean cougar mascot bends down to hug a little boy.
    I cheer for men’s and women’s teams so gender-neutral names are a plus.
  • I am a fierce animal, but I also give kids high fives at football games so scary names don’t work.

Submit your suggestions here. The deadline is January 31. A winner will be announced in February.


The Cougar

P.S. Once I get a new name, I’m also getting a makeover so you can make suggestions for my new look on the form too.
