Meet Renny the Raven
Renny means "small, but mighty." Renny The Raven was introduced to the Rosemont community in 2013. During the grand naming event, other college mascots came to welcome Renny to the family.
Even the Phillie Phanatic came to welcome Rosemont into the mascot world. Renny can be seen at open houses welcoming families, at sports games cheering on the Ravens, or just strolling around campus getting into trouble.
An Interview with Renny
Q: What goal are you currently trying to achieve?
A: I would like to learn how to fly one day. Kinda embarrassing being a flightless raven . . .
Q: Who or what inspires you?
A: The Rosemont community inspires me. The students who attend every game and cheer on their fellow students. They show more heart and spirit than anywhere I have been.
Q: Where is the furthest place you have traveled?
A: I haven’t gotten many places, but why leave when all my favorite people are located at 1400 Montgomery Ave.?
Q: Favorite college memory?

Q: What advice would you give to your college self?
A: Remember what my name means: “Small, but mighty."
