SMU Spirit Squads

Human Peruna Mascot

Human Peruna is the costumed mascot that represents Southern Methodist University and SMUs Athletic Department. The character is an extension of Peruna to be enjoyed by fans -- especially children -- at all SMU athletic contests. Human Peruna features traditional collegiate gear as part of his regular uniforms, but he also don team uniforms for football  and men's and women's basketball games.

Human Peruna is an accessory to our longtime beloved live mascot, Peruna.  Mascots perform at football and basketball games. They are also required to attend community events. There are 2-3 mascots as a part of a program during each season.

During summer break Human Peruna is not available to attend as many events as normal. Thank you for understanding.
