Hi! I’m Jack, the Shimer Office of Admission’s official mascot!
My humans keep threatening to create a Flaming Smelt costume for me to wear on those days I am performing official mascot duties. I’m not all that keen on the idea, but if it helps out my friends at Shimer, I’ll wear it. I only work at Shimer a few days out of the year, but I really love the days I get to spend on campus. Meeting all of the friendly and interesting people at Shimer is my favorite! (Well, next to playing fetch in Humboldt Park.) Hopefully I will get a chance to meet you at Shimer someday!
