Reggie's modern facelift

[This article is from the Spring/Summer 2018 issue of InTouch, your alumni magazine]

Many generations of King’s students have cherished their mascot, Reggie the Lion, since he was brought to King’s in 1923. But how do King’s students picture their mascot nowadays?

The original statue of Reggie has been much renovated by King’s engineers over the last 95 years and he stands proudly in the King’s College London Students’ Union (KCLSU) protected by a glass case. A lovable mascot, Reggie remains part of student life in many ways – the student newspaper, Roar, is affectionately named after him, and over 18 KCLSU societies use a Reggie icon in their communications. From the Robotics society to the Ukulele Society, Reggie’s adventurous ways are captured in various forms. We picture just a few of them here.
