The Baylor Mascot could have been the Buffalo, Antelope, Frog, Ferret or Bookworm ... After seventy years without an official mascot, students in 1914 voted to name the bear the official "Patron Saint of all Baylordom." More than two dozen animals were on the ballot; the bruin defeated the buffalo by more than two-to-one margin. The first bear to arrive on campus was a gift from soldiers at Camp MacArthur in Waco in 1917.
