Where in the World is Pete the Panther? Join the Chapman Family in Sharing Pete Around the Globe

After eight months of being stuck at home, life for many has become a little humdrum. Now, students, alumni and other members of the Chapman Family can welcome a familiar face into their homes to liven things up — without having to worry about things like quarantines, virus tests or health screenings. 

“I don’t know about everyone else, but the past few months have been pretty rough,” says Pete the Panther, Chapman University’s mascot and chief cheer officer. “I’m really looking forward to getting to see everyone again.”

Thanks to technological advancements, Pete can now travel anywhere in the world with just the touch of a button. 

“The best thing about it is that it’s 100% safe,” says Pete.
