ECU Mascot - Ernie the Emu

Meet Ernie, the resident ECU Mascot

Inaugurated in 2012, Ernie is the featheriest member of the ECU team and is at the heart of many student events. Aside from being ECU’s number 1 supporter of university sport, Ernie is also the embodiment of fun, social engagement and campus life here at ECU!

Ernie can often be seen roaming the grounds at student events, so be sure to say hello to him when you do spot this big bird around campus.
