APPEARANCES BY CLASH

Clash, the official mascot of UW-Oshkosh athletics, is available to entertain fans of all ages. Clash's appearances are on a first-come, first-served basis and completion of a request form does not guarantee a visit.

Clash loves to socialize and often attends a variety of events on the UW-Oshkosh campus and in the Oshkosh community. Clash will also make private appearances such as charity events, birthday parties, banquets and weddings.

Clash is very busy and requests must be made with at least two weeks notice. If Clash is available, a representative of the UW-Oshkosh athletics office will contact you and further guidelines, such as the appearance fee, will be explained. Payment must be paid in full one week prior to your event.

WHO IS CLASH?

The UW-Oshkosh administration turned to its students, faculty and staff and the citizens of Oshkosh for recommendations on the new name for the mascot of the school's athletic teams.

Through an online survey, the campus community submitted suggestions, which then were whittled down to the top four. Then, in order to engage the Oshkosh community, polls of the final four choices were conducted. Polls were placed on both the university and The Oshkosh Northwestern websites so that anyone could vote for a mascot name that would enhance UW-Oshkosh's sub-branding efforts and regional partnerships.

After the voting period ended, Clash proved to be the most popular choice. Clash was born and given the name by Chancellor Richard Wells at UW-Oshkosh's homecoming football game against UW-Stevens Point on Oct. 17, 2009.

"Clash complements the experience at UW-Oshkosh sporting events through characterization and energetic performances," said UW-Oshkosh sports information director Kennan Timm. "Mascots like Clash draw attention to the brand they represent. In this case, the brand is UW-Oshkosh and the 21 teams affiliated with the school's athletics department. Our goal is to have Clash create attention, boost team and community spirit and build a lasting connection between UW-Oshkosh and children, our future Titans.

With the name in place, the image of Clash has cemented itself as the face of UW-Oshkosh athletics.
