Description

While RIT students have donned tiger costumes fo over a half-century, "RITchie" is a fairly recent idea. His origins date to 1989, when third-year College of Liberal Arts student Rick Mislan submitted the name in a contest held by the College Activities board. Over the past thirty years, RITchie's costume has been refreshed several times.

This book, RITchie Finds His Stripes, includes a visual timeline of RIT's animal mascots, including the various versions of RITchie. The book was written and illustrated by Rick Mislan and Rachel Bentley respectively, with help from Mislan's daughters, Emelia and Mackenzie.
