Bryant Bulldogs - Mascot



The Bulldog logo became the official new logo and mascot of the university after a 1995 campus-wide vote. The school now has a living mascot and a costumed mascot to represent the bulldogs mascot and university athletics. Bryant has also used two bulldog logos as they did during the Indian years; first using a realistic bulldog's head inside a diamond design, followed by the current design in 2004. The change came when Bryant went from being a college to a university.

Ironclad Tupper I, or Tupper for short, is an English bulldog purchased by Bryant University President Ron Machtley and his wife, Kati. The Machtleys gave the dog to the school to honor the class of 2010's senior class gift campaign, which exceeded its goals and set two senior class gift records. Tupper now serves as Bryant University's mascot and attends campus events, as well as performing community service as a therapy dog. He is the first live bulldog mascot in the university's history and received an honorary degree at 2010 commencement for "character and obedience."
