Mac, Immaculata’s mascot, has appeared around the world in recent
months. Enjoy the photos and see where Mac has been!
Mac’s appearance on Immaculata’s campus in September 2007 was a
welcomed sight to our students. A black Scotty dog with a tartan plaid
tam and a kilt, long known to our students as “Mackie,” had not made an
appearance in several years.
With the help of several people, including our president, Sister
Patricia Fadden, IHM, a new “Mac” was designed and created by
Raymond Entertainment Group, the designers of the world-renowned
Phillie Phanatic. How lucky was Immaculata to have a well-known firm
Now a big gray dog, with a positive, outgoing personality, the new
Mac has embraced being part of the campus community. Members of
the “Mac Pack” include performers, whose identities are strictly guarded,
and “spotters” who help Mac during appearances since Mac’s mobility is
hampered by his big feet and his lack of good visibility.
Thank you to all of our alumni and friends for sharing their photos,
but most importantly, for keeping Mac close during your travels.
Included are short remembrances from recent performers and their
attachment to this character.
