SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Three public forums will be held on possibly changing the University of Illinois-Springfield mascot and nickname from the Prairie Stars.

The school says in a news release that its Student government Association will hold the sessions Monday and Tuesday. The association is looking for feedback from students, faculty, staff, alumni and the community.

The school says the student association and UIS Student Affairs will present six possibilities for the new mascot and nickname. Two of them include the Stars and the Prairie Stars. The other four haven’t been revealed.

The State Journal-Register reports ( the Prairie Stars name dates to 1977 when the school was called Sangamon State University.
