Mascot Name: LIONS

History: The “Lions” became the mascot for The College of New Jersey back in 1928 when they were known as Normal School (later to become Trenton State College). Basketball coach Earl H. Dean exhorted his squad to act like lions in the second half of a game in which they trailed. The press picked up the nickname and the “Lions” became the unofficial mascot until former athletic director Roy VanNess began a drive to make the lion a vital part of the school’s athletic picture.
