Who is Iggy?

The concept of Iggy was brought to life in 2004 and has since been a fixture on The University of Scranton campus.  Named after St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus, Iggy has served our University well, by being the #1 fan of the Royal athletic teams and by attending various campus and community events throughout the year.
