BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Streamers have been hung, windows have been painted, and the football
team is ready. Titan pride is in the air for Homecoming 2009 on the campus of Illinois
Even the mascot, Tommy the Titan, is seen around campus and taking part in the festivities
as students participate in “Where is Tommy,” a competition to promote school spirit
and highlight the University’s mascot.
During the week of Oct. 5th through the 8th clues to Tommy’s whereabouts have been
posted on his Facebook status. Monday through Thursday the mascot made an appearance
at different locations during lunch and dinner as part of the hide-and-seek game.
Students were on search for Tommy in places such as the Hansen Student Center T.V.
lounge, the Minor Myers, jr. Welcome Center, and other locations.
In order to participate in the competition, students representing registered student
organization teams were requested to take a picture with both Tommy and two members
of the organization, post it in their Facebook photo album, and tag the photo. Points
are awarded per picture and participants will be entered into a raffle.
