|D.M.U. Students. The Tiger (1928)|
|H.P.C Students. The Piper (1918)|
Mascots at colleges, universes and even professional sports have long histories. Highland Park College and Des Moines University each had mascots. The Piper and The Tiger were both the names of their mascots and the titles of their yearbooks (a tiger is also the favcon for this website too in honor of D.M.U.).
