Norm in the Oak Grove

IUP’s official mascot, the Crimson Hawk, is named Norm! Norm gets his name from IUP’s roots. IUP was initially named “Indiana Normal School” in 1875, then changing to “Indiana State College” in 1959, and finally “Indiana University of Pennsylvania” in 1965 after achieving university status.

You can find Norm at most varsity athletic games, as well as around the Oak Grove at a variety of IUP events. Are you interested in having Norm appear at your office’s event? Contact Eric McCabe at for more information.  Go Hawks!
