HAMMOND, LA (WAFB) - Southeastern Louisiana University's mascot, a lion named Roomie, will undergo a redesign based on an online vote by students, faculty, staff, and fans of the school.

"Periodically, Roomie gets a facelift to keep up with changing trends. It is time for an update, which will be revealed in the fall in time for football season. We're going to Lion Up and change it up a bit," said Erin Cowser, executive director of public and governmental affairs at SLU.

The choices for the redesign have already been narrowed down to two designs. Interested individuals can vote online beginning Wednesday, March 28 at 8 a.m. Voting will continue through Tuesday, April 4. Votes can be cast here.

The winning selection will be announced at a later date.
