What does Big Red mean to you?
Big Red, Western Kentucky University’s athletic mascot, was born in the fall of 1979 and celebrates its birthday on December 1st. Big Red can be best described as the Spirit of Western! Big Red has become a big hit with fans of all ages throughout the state and the nation. Big Red’s signature moves are the belly slide and belly shake.
The ultimate fan and supporter of all WKU’s intercollegiate sports, Big Red makes hundreds of appearance around the community each year from wedding receptions, to ribbon cuttings and birthday parties.
We need your help to keep Big Red looking like the furry, lovable creature that we all love. Please make your gift today.
