Yavapai College welcomed a new costumed mascot, “’Ol’ Ruff,” at the start of fall semester. The original, endearing character on a white horse was created in the fall of 1973 by then-student artist Yvonne Johnson. Earlier this year, the college reimagined Ruff, debuting his updated persona in both graphic and costumed-human form.
The college is celebrating Ruff’s 45th birthday at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19, during the YC home volleyball match in Walraven Gymnasium on the Prescott campus after rain canceled the first celebration on Saturday, October 13th.
