We are the Saxons!
Alfred University's athletic mascot was selected in 1929 by the student body. Since that time, we have had several versions of unofficial mascots. That changed in 2013. Students and alumni asked us to explore the idea of an official mascot so we selected a mascot committee of AU staff with input from alumni, students, faculty and staff beginning in the spring semester 2013. A warrior design was selected. A naming contest was held with the winning nominations being Alfred the Great and his trusty steed Alden (an Anglo-Saxon name meaning defender) and our costumed mascot - Li'l Alf.
Li'l Alf, Alfred the Great and his steed Alden can be seen at a variety of campus events across campus. Li'l Alf is out and about campus almost every Friday looking for the person showing the most Saxon Spirit!
Would you like Li'l Alf to attend your campus event?
