Stony Brook University’s mascot, Wolfie the Seawolf, turned 20 years old this year. Stony Brook Athletics transitioned to Division I in the NCAA in 1994, and the name of the sports teams was changed from Patriots to Seawolves.
Today, Wolfie has a busy schedule. He can be found at anywhere from 300 to 500 events each year, according to Andrea Lebedinski, Coordinator of Annual Giving and Branding for Stony Brook Athletics. Lebedinski, who graduated from Stony Brook University in 2008 as an undergraduate and again in 2010 with a master’s degree, has managed Wolfie for the past five years.
Ten years ago, when Lebedinski began attending Stony Brook, Wolfie had a scarce presence. Wolfie would only make a handful of appearances per year, at major events such as Homecoming or championship games.
“I saw that Wolfie was an under-utilized representation of what we are about here at Stony Brook,” said Lebedinski. “For me that was a big thing. I’ve always been into school spirit.”
