In the spring of 2003, the Purdue North Central athletic mascot was officially named "Pounce."

Pounce can be seen roaming around during athletic events, orientation, and various campus activities, greeting students and visitors and spreading PNC pride.

Pounce the Panther replaced our previous mascot, the Centaur, a name that was adopted in 1967 for the new campus.
