The Worcester Polytechnic Institute Proud Goat

The Worcester Polytechnic Institute Proud Goat

This proud, standing goat mascot is overlooking the main quad of the campus. In the early days of the college a real goat, affectionately named Gompei after the student who took care of it, lived on campus and was paraded on a leash to the athletic field before games. The Class of 2009 commissioned the creation of the sculpture in 2008. A second goat statue was created in 2014 and can be viewed here.
