Why MSU-Moorhead's mascot, Scorch, will be on the sidelines on occasion


Minnesota State University – Moorhead

Serious studiers

First St. Cloud State President Earl Potter rolled out  his school’s new branding campaign.

Now Minnesota State University – Moorhead takes its own shot at getting a new look, The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead reports.


When it promotes its academics, the school will no longer use its Dragon mascot, Scorch, but instead use the recently developed one above. (Apparently, no one recognized the dragon outside the region.)

Scorch need not fear, however. He’ll still be used for sports. (You can check him out on a mast here.)
