Request An Appearance

Scotty is available for appearances on campus and in the community. Please be aware that Scotty normally attends large scale events with a broad spectrum of the Carnegie Mellon community represented. Typically, event request should be for groups including no less than 25 people and in a location appropriate for a mascot presence (sit down dinners and many small indoor locations are not suitable requests).

If you would like Scotty to make an appearance at your event, please email Joan Maser at

Mascot Performer Tryouts

Tryouts to be the mascot performer will be held every fall semester. This year, tryouts will be Thursday, October 22 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. in the Skibo Arena room.

We are still accepting applications, so if interested, please contact Joan to sign up for a tryout time. Bring the completed mascot performer application and the signed mascot performer contract to the tryouts. Also, prepare a 2-minute skit that showcases Scotty’s skills and abilities (can be set to music). Props and signs can be used and are encouraged. Be sure to show your creative side and provide the selection committee with an energetic, exciting routine!

Finally, please review the mascot performer requirements prior to attending tryouts.
