Buster Bronco

KALAMAZOO--Did you know Buster Bronco doesn't speak? Did you know both men and women have served as Buster Bronco?

Western Michigan University is looking for an outgoing and energetic student to be the next Buster Bronco.

The deadline to apply is Monday, April 30.

The University's mascot attends every football game and most home contests for other varsity sports. Buster also represents WMU at a variety of campus and community events.

Since Buster never speaks, applicants must be physically expressive, as well as physically fit and kid-friendly. They must be dedicated students, able to manage their time effectively and have the flexibility to meet the schedule required of Buster Bronco.

Western changed its nickname to the Broncos in 1939, but it wasn't until 1988 that Buster Bronco was adopted as the school mascot.

For more information or to apply, contact Shelly Tansley in athletic community relations at shelly.e.tansley@wmich.edu or (269) 387-3615.
