Mizzou's Tiger Mascot

Truman the Tiger-so named for famed Missourian, U.S. President Harry S. Truman-leads UM Tiger fans at sporting events like football and basketball games. He also shows up at other types of non-sports functions where school spirit is called for. He's often on hand as a morale booster at hospitals and community events. If you go to a Mizzou game and want to blend in, wear the school colors of gold and black-like a Bengal tiger.
