Sammy the Eagle, Kirkwood Community College’s mascot turned 43 on Nov. 6.

This year Sammy got a makeover, a brand new costume that would dramatically change his appearance.

Since his creation in 1976, he has gone through many changes. This new look is more modern and vivid than previous iterations.

Student Life celebrated his birthday with cake in Iowa Hall where he made his debut with his new look. Students can expect to see Sammy out and about at Kirkwood events in 2020.
