From Frosty I... to Dubs II
Curious about Husky Mascot history? GoHuskies has you covered.
2022 marks 100 years since our first husky mascot! Frosty I, appointed in 1922, was adopted by the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and lived with his fraternity brothers. #TBT to Frosty I and all of his cuteness. pic.twitter.com/16Ovlin3sH— University of Washington (@UW) January 7, 2022
