Meet Buzz

Buzz is the official Yellowjacket Mascot of the University of Wisconsin-Superior. Buzz loves to socialize, although he does not speak, and is always ready to have his picture taken with fans. He often attends a variety of events on the UW-Superior campus and in the Twin Ports community.

Request an Appearance

Buzz is available for appearances at campus and community functions to provide a fun atmosphere and share Yellowjacket pride. He is busy, so requests should be submitted at least seven (7) days prior to the event. Appearances are on a first-come, first served basis and dependent on mascot availability. Keep in mind that Buzz may not be available during academic breaks and summer due to school being out of session.

Buzz can be requested by submitting the request form. The mascot team coordinator will contact you regarding your request and Buzz’s availability for your event. Completion of a request form does not guarantee an appearance.

Guidelines for Appearances:

  • A free parking space close to the event or a ride to the event (if needed).
  • A dedicated helper to serve as a liaison between the mascot and the event staff and to accompany Buzz for the duration of the appearance.
  • A private and secure changing area.
  • Bottled water.
  • A 15-minute break every 45 minutes – due to safety reasons, Buzz may not be in the costume for more than 45 consecutive minutes during the appearance.
  • Accurate directions, location, on-site contact and on-site phone number provided.
  • The safety of Buzz is of utmost importance. The mascot may be excused from any event due to inclement weather or if they feel their safety is comprised.
