Mascot Program

Meet Jinx, Jawz, and Jazzy

Indiana University Indianapolis Jaguar Mascots appear at campus and community events throughout the year to enhance school spirit, promote Jaguar pride, and generate excitement for all.

The Jaguar became IU Indianapolis' official mascot in 1998, coinciding with the campus's move to NCAA Division I Athletics. The Jaguar was chosen because it reflects the energy of our urban campus and represents the spirit of IU Indianapolis: powerful, swift, and confident.
