The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley announced the aesthetics of a 3D mascot Wednesday, which were voted on and designed by students.

A committee of faculty, staff and students have discussed the details of a mascot since 2015, Cindy Mata, director of UTRGV Student Activities, said in a news release Wednesday.

“Student designers from the theater department helped design the outfit the mascot will wear,” Mata stated. “They based the look on our region and did research about real vaqueros. All the costume pieces were designed by our students. And our students also voted for the symbols included on the outfit.”

More than 2,800 students voted on two options for the Vaquero last year.

A student will portray a costumed Vaquero in the fall as an “ambassador and entertainer at campus and off-campus community events,” according to the release.
