As you probably noticed, our newsletter has received a facelift and a new name!
The hippo is the official mascot of New College Franklin chosen as a play on the name of one of the early church fathers: Saint Augustine of Hippo. Expanding on this, our Hippo’s name is Augie! Augie the Hippo!
Hippos are magnificent creations, and even with an average weight of 3,000 lbs, they can run almost 20 mph! They are considered highly aggressive and unpredictable, and therefore are considered among the most dangerous animals in the world. Yet, in their habitat, they are beautiful creatures and speak to the awesome power of our Creator.
Through The Hippo Report, we will keep you up-to-date with events on campus, faculty and alumni updates, and links to articles that we hope will challenge you. Please feel free to contact us, send us articles you have found, make suggestions, and join us in our mission!
