Baxter's Bench

In early 2018, we decided we needed someone to greet visitors whenever The Union is open (which is most of the time). Our mascot was the logical choice but he has a full schedule with games, events and celebrity mixers. So, we had him cloned... well, we went to Icon Poly and got a stand-in for Baxter. He arrived just in time for Family Weekend and has been a popular fixture and Instagram celebrity since. Come visit him, second floor of University Union West, right outside the Bookstore. #baxtersbench
