You may be wondering about the golden frog sitting in the lotus pose, popping up here and there on campus. It's SHAWN, our mascot/mentor at Student Success.

SHAWN is a multi-racial, unisex, multi-cultural being. S-he uses ancient and modern wisdom to help us promote and educate the UWT community about various health and wellness topics.

When SHAWN is not busy touring, s-he is usually meditating on the front desk in the SHAW office at MAT354.

Please stop by and say 'hi' to SHAWN!
