"We'd Love to Party With You"
Mr. and/or Ms. Wuf may be available to appear at your next event. They love to socialize (although they do not speak or even howl) and are always ready to have their pictures taken with fans. Of course, they have very busy schedules so you need to SUBMIT YOUR REQUEST AT LEAST TWO WEEKS BEFORE YOUR EVENT. Keep in mind that they may not be available during scheduled academic breaks, during exam week, or on days when there is a game (especially football or basketball). Also, they are very busy at the beginning of semesters and are more likely to be available in the evenings and on weekends.
Mascot Appearance Policies:
At the event, mascots will need a mature, full-time escort/handler who can ensure the mascots have:
Appearances default to one hour. Exceptions must be approved by the Athletics Department in advance.
Athletics Department Fees:
The current rates for each mascot are:
You will be charged for the hours and number of mascots assigned at the applicable rate. You will be charged an hour for any portion of an hour over 15 minutes. Any changes to hours or number of mascots will result in a new invoice being issued for the additional services provided.
All payments must be made by check or university IDT.
When your request is confirmed, your confirmation email will include an invoice.
We use the current government rate of $0.565 per mile for mileage reimbursement.
Your invoice will include reimbursement for round-trip mileage from NC State University (2500 Warren Carroll Drive, Raleigh) to the event. Reimbursement is not required for round-trips of fewer than ten miles.
If two mascots are covering an event during the academic year, they are required to travel together. During a university break or holiday, if their travel originates from different places, you may be charged for each mascot's mileage.
Make a request:
By submitting the Mascot Appearance Request form on the next page, you acknowledge your agreement with and acceptance of our policies. Please complete all of the required fields on the request form. You will receive an automatic confirmation that your request has been received. We will then forward your request to the mascots and will let you know as soon as possible whether or not we can fulfill your request.
When mascots are assigned we will send an email to you with their names and cell numbers, the name and phone number of the mascot coordinator, and the name and phone number of the mascot's emergency contact. We will attach your invoice to the email.
If there are problems in fulfilling your request we will work with you to see if a date or time change is possible. We may also be able to offer a substitute in mascots (Ms. instead of Mr. or one instead of both).
