To me, the mural stands for community. We chose to feature icons of Valpo, like the Victory Bell, but also of the campus’ nature, like Merlin, and surrounding communities, like Valpo’s love of popcorn. – Zion Clifford ’25

Beacon (left) and Blaze (right) made their debut appearance at the Sept. 3 home football game, cheering the team to an exciting win. Shown here with the family of Charles Small, Ed.D, our new director of athletics, the two colorful mascots brought a new level of energy to the gameday environment. Whether it’s at athletic events or around the community, Beacon and Blaze are excited to represent the Brown and Gold.

The students, faculty, staff, and surrounding community members have always been enthusiastic about coming together to join the Homecoming celebrations at Valparaiso University. Whether they’re rocking the Brown and Gold, bringing nautical visions to life, or simply greeting the crowds and representing their fraternities with a smile, students throughout the decades have pulled out all the stops to make each year a memorable event.
