Stanford student suspended from serving as Tree mascot

The person who serves as the Stanford Tree’s mascot was suspended after unfurling a banner that read “Stanford hates fun” during the Cardinal’s football game against Arizona State on Oct. 22.

It was first announced by the Stanford Tree’s Twitter account on Sunday night.

A spokesman for Stanford’s athletic department confirmed the suspension, stating, “The students that make up the Executive Committee of LSJUMB have suspended the Tree mascot for a violation of the band’s policies and processes.”

A person who previously served as the tree will assume mascot duties during the suspension.

It’s unclear how long the lockdown will last. Messages to those associated with the tree and the marching band were not immediately returned.

The banner was unveiled during halftime of the football game with the help of the Arizona State Sun Devils mascot and came in response to perceptions among students that the university was suppressing “social opportunities,” according to the Stanford Daily — Stanford’s school newspaper. on the campus.

The Stanford Tree and Marching Band both have histories of suspensions. In 2016, the band was suspended for bullying, sexual harassment and alcohol abuse. In 2006, two students who served as Tree’s mascot were suspended: one after being ejected for dancing in an undesignated area during an NCAA women’s basketball tournament game; the other after her blood alcohol level measured 0.157 during a men’s basketball game against Cal.
