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.
