What's in a Name? Don't Ask Roary, The Estrella Mountain Lion

EMCC Mascot, Roary the Estrella Mountain Lion

Since 2009, the official mascot of Estrella Mountain Community College has been the “Estrella Mountain Lion.” The name, though, leaves some ambiguity on whether the mascot is the “Lion of Estrella Mountain” or the “Mountain Lion of Estrella.” Since our mascot is never referred to as the “Estrella Mountain Mountain Lion,” there is some inconsistency as a result.


Fine and Performing Arts Week

As part of Fine and Performing Arts Week, Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) held “StoriEstrella”, a storytelling concert where past and current students where able to put their new skills to the test in front of their fellow students, family, and friends of all ages.

One student who got to perform a story was Mariesa Rojas. Rojas told a story entitled “Angelita and the Giants,” which is like Snow White but is a Brazilian tale. One fun fact about her tale is that instead of a poisoned apple, there are poisoned slippers that cause the princess to fall into a deep sleep.
