At the end of 2020, the University of Tartu mascot contest attracted a total of 97 submitted designs. The university family selected “Tiksu” by Lennart Rikk as the winning design. The design has now been developed further and Tiksu is ready to meet the university family at the end of August.
The use of the mascot is organised by a team of volunteers led by the university’s Marketing Unit. All students and staff of the University of Tartu are welcome to apply to become part of this team of volunteers. If you would like to try what it is like to be inside a mascot or to lead a team of volunteers, write to the Marketing Unit of the university at turundus [ät] ut.ee.
