The list of mascots for the new Middle Georgia State College has been whittled down to three.
The decision now rests in students’ hands as to whether they will be known as the Knights, Thrashers or Thunderbirds.
Students at all campuses of Macon State College and Middle Georgia College will vote Sept. 17-21 on the mascot for the consolidated college.
Originally, a group of community and college representatives was going to make the decision, but Macon State interim President John Black said the decision needed to be made by students, according to a post on the consolidation website.
After the mascot is chosen, it will be given to a graphic design firm that will present at least three sets of color combinations. Students then will vote on the colors as well, the website states.
