The University of Pittsburgh adopted the Panther as its official animal and mascot in November 1909. This adoption occurred shortly after the university, previously known as the Western University of Pennsylvania, prior to changing its name in 1908 to the University of Pittsburgh. When named the Western University of Pennsylvania, the university had been referred to by the nickname of "Wup" (pronounced Whup) and athletic teams referred to as the "Wups", a play on the school's abbreviation W.U.P. The panther was chosen because it was the most formidable creature once indigenous to the Pittsburgh region. The mascot is generally referred to as the Pittsburgh Panther or Pitt Panther, while the costumed panther mascot is named "Roc".
