Pride and Traditions

Montclair State is home to the Red Hawks and with the help of our mascot, Rocky the Red Hawk, we bleed Red Hawk Pride! We also have our beautiful, 12-foot-high, bronze Red Hawk statue, which was installed on campus in 2015. For students, it’s the perfect place to take your first picture on campus when you get accepted and your last when you graduate. Dress the Red Hawk up at different times of the year and don’t forget to rub the beak for good luck during finals and on game days!


On Fridays We Wear Red!
