THE AZTEC WARRIOR

The Aztec Warrior, San Diego State University's new mascot, made his first public appearance Monday, February 23, 2004 at the SDSU men's basketball game against Colorado State at Cox Arena.

"This marks the beginning of an exciting new tradition for the entire SDSU community," said SDSU President Stephen L. Weber. "It also marks the conclusion of a long, thoughtful, democratic process that has produced a historically accurate and appropriate mascot that enjoys strong support by students, alumni and athletic boosters."

SDSU alumni, faculty and students overwhelmingly approved the Aztec Warrior mascot concept in separate referendums held in December 2003. Nearly 10,000 students voted, setting a new SDSU record for a student referendum and endorsing the proposed mascot by more than a 3:1 ratio. More than 4,700 Alumni Association and Aztec Athletic Foundation members voted in their referendum, with more than 88 percent of voters backing the mascot.
