Goose Gaggle

Friday, February 25 | 5:00 p.m. | COE Atrium

At the first annual Goose Gaggle, we will unveil our college identity and flock together at this party of sorts! We have been taking naming suggestions for our new mascot throughout the week, and now is the time to reveal their name!

Make sure to participate in the Goose Scavenger Hunt (hosted by SELB), earlier in the day to win prizes.

Inaugural Wild Goose Chase

Saturday, February 26 | 9:00 a.m. | COE Main Entrance (facing golf course, near bus loop)

It’s a walk, it’s a waddle, it’s a run and it’s FUN! Join us for some fun with friends & family on the E-School campus. Design your WILDEST outfit and run or walk this ~1-mile event to support the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. We will award prizes for the quickest, but also the funniest competitors, including: 

  • Wildest outfit (remember, it’s a family/community event!)
  • Fastest time
  • Best group (3+) theme/costume
  • Best couples theme/costume

After the race, peruse the open-house-style STEM fair inside the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering building—interesting for all ages.

The first 100 registrants get a race tee onsite, and there will be food and drinks at the end for everyone. Register NOW to reserve your spot in the gaggle. 


This E-Week, we are proud to unveil our new college mascot!

At the end of 2020, FAMU-FSU College of Engineering announced a college-wide mascot contest open to all FAMU-FSU Engineering students to represent the spirit and pride of our unique college. Submissions were collected until the end of Engineers Week in February 2021. An appointed Mascot Committee comprised of faculty and staff from FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, along with representatives from both Florida State University and Florida A&M University Communications, selected the top entries from the submission pool. The top entries moved on to the college's Administrative Council to determine the winning design that would be selected as the primary inspiration for our new mascot. The winning design, created by Nehemiah Fields (class of 2021), was then transformed into an athletic-style logo by Marc Thomas (Assistant Director of Creative ServicesFSU Communications) to create the official mascot design.

The goose is a favorite character among students, faculty and staff alike, and many of us have memories of our notorious “goose- episodes” on our campus. The FAMU-FSU Engineering “Geese” speaks to the fierceness, dedication and community that defines the our college! All Rattlers and Noles can now be called “Geese” as well. After 40 years we finally have our own identity.

Welcome to the gaggle!
