Fresno State Mascot: TimeOut
As the Spirit Squad's most beloved member, Fresno State mascot TimeOut has become not only a symbol of the Athletics Department but also one of the University's top ambassadors within the community. Since his introduction to the Red Wave in 1981, TimeOut has become an integral part of the overall fan experience at athletic events. Bulldog fans young and old have been entertained by the lovable figure's skits and mischievous antics as he roams the sidelines and stands at athletic events each year. In addition to athletic events, TimeOut has been known to frequent various campus and community events throughout the year while representing the Athletics Department and the University in a positive manner. The students performing as TimeOut are eligible for the Bulldog Pride Fund: TimeOut Spirit Award, a $2,000 annual scholarship established by the Bulldog Pride Fund, which was founded under the auspices of the Fresno State Alumni Association.
