The Dakota State University Trojans are beginning the academic year with a new mascot, named General Cyber, or General Cy. He was introduced to the university and Madison communities at events this week.
The campaign to bring in a new mascot began after the university rebranded in 2019. Students were asked to vote on a name for the new character, and out of four options and a number of write-in suggestions, General Cyber won.
General Cyber will represent all facets of DSU, from its technology-centric programs to its athletics teams, and its students, employees, and alumni.
General Cyber will be at university and community events in the future, and on DSU’s social media.
