The Return of the H.I. Mascots

Last April as part of our now defunct Fun Blog, the Hopkins Interactive students experimented with what became know as “Mascot Blogs.” The admittedly silly entries had one of the H.I. students selecting from three adopted (purchased) stuffed mascots. Then in a traveling gnome style series, the students and mascot went on mini-vacations or campus excursions that were documented in blog form. We all admit that ridiculous nature of these entries, but also feel they were a neat way to give everyone out there a feel for Hopkins, Baltimore, and the worldly experiences of our students.


Well, the mascots will be back. And to get you all excited we though during this holiday week we would provide re-caps of the mascot travels this past spring and summer.

ENJOY and stay tuned!!!
