Jerry the Bulldog, campus ambassador at Arkansas Tech University, celebrated his sixth birthday with students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends on Wednesday, July 17.
ATU’s first modern Jerry, whose full name is Jerry Charles Young I, was born on July 17, 2013. He is an English bulldog. He was introduced during a Homecoming Saturday ceremony on Oct. 26, 2013, which was the 103rd anniversary of the first day of classes at Arkansas Tech.
Jerry’s return marked the restoration of a Tech tradition that had been lost for more than 75 years.
