Our new Owl mascot has a name, and it is Orbis! Why Orbis? It was picked because it is both non-specific and somewhat universal.
- First, Orbis means "world" in latin.
- Second, it is non-denominational.
- Third, since latin is a dead language, it's not widely spoken in any country that is around today.
- It is an added bonus that there are several languages that use latin words in its roots, so it does have universal appeal.
Orbis will be making an appearance at the Food Festival! Selfies anyone?
