Benny the Hawk
Benny the Hawk

October 29, 2016

"Benny the Hawk," Susquehanna's new mascot, has arrived!

He took to Amos Alonzo Stagg Field Saturday, Oct. 29, just before the River Hawks football team took on the Franklin & Marshall Diplomats as part of Family Weekend festivities.

Benny, chosen by students through a vote, is a nod to Susquehanna's founder Benjamin Kurtz. His name has been tied to a number of campus spaces and organizations, including the Benjamin Kurtz Society and the former Benny's campus snack bar, now The Hawk's Nest. Kurtz served as president from the university's founding in 1858 until 1865.
