Among the 1,500 undergraduate students graduating from this year, one student has been more involved in campus activities and events than his classmates probably ever suspected.

Senior Mahir Khan will be the only Rocky graduating this year. Khan said that his experience as Rocky the Yellowjacket has not only allowed him to channel his school spirit but also to better his experience at UR.

“For four years, I’ve been blessed and honored with the opportunity to be Rocky the Yellowjacket,” Khan told the Campus Times. “Between all the sports games, community events, admissions events, and especially Mel Weekend and D-Day, I always knew my energy and school spirit were best channeled into the symbol Rocky is for the University of Rochester. I’ll forever cherish the small moments with students, faculty, staff, alumni, families, and community members that made each experience under the suit so much more worth it. It’s been an amazing ride being Rocky, and I know I’ll always look back at every experience as one that made my time at Rochester ever better.”
