Natchioches, LA (KMSS) — Northwestern State University’s 90-year-old mascot Vic the Demon is getting a facelift. The new Vic will be introduced to the public during the first home football game against Southern University on Saturday, Sept. 7.
In anticipation of the new Vic’s appearance, Northwestern State’s Office of Marketing and Branding created a video on the history of the mascot and how Vic’s look evolved over the decades. “Vic – The Next Generation” can be viewed on Northwestern State’s youtube channel, at youtube.com/northwesternstate.
The Demon was selected as the school’s mascot by student vote in 1923 and acquired the name Vic – short for Victory – in 1984.
