A Day in the Life of the BC Ram
What is it like to be the BC Ram, and what on earth does he do all day?
December 2, 2011
The BC Ram has one goal, to brighten the mood of students and faculty on campus.
Walking around campus in his BC-colored jersey (with the number "1" displayed on the front and back) the Ram does what he can to bring a smile to the students. He’s been known to dance, give out hugs and even pretend to box with people. He’ll even fall to the ground if it means getting a laugh.

If there is an open house or organizational fair going on the Ram will make an appearance. He likes to entertain potential students as well as show them how much fun BC’s campus can be. Recently he passed out cookies in Harman Chapel to homeschooled students interested in attending BC.
In the afternoon and evening the Ram’s favorite place to go is a sporting event. While visiting with people at tailgating events he makes sure to have his fill of dinner to build up his strength for game time. It takes a lot of energy to entertain the crowd.
The Ram likes to bring out school spirit and get the crowd pumped up. He said the crowd’s energy gets him going as well. He stays for the entire game and sometimes longer to keep up the excitement.
One thing he likes to do is dance with the cheerleaders. He doesn’t know any of the moves but improvises as he goes along. He does it for a guaranteed laugh.
The Ram’s favorite sporting event to attend is volleyball. He said it’s the event where he can easily distract the opposing team’s players.
Before last spring semester the Ram wasn’t out and about too much, but now he wants to continue to make more and more appearances around campus. He wants students to look out for him at sporting events, walking around campus, and he may even make an appearance at convocation.
You never know where he might show up next, but he’ll be sure to bring a smile and laughter along with him.
