Blue Demon Day is just weeks away on Saturday, Feb. 2, so this month we’re quizzing you on your knowledge of our school mascot instead of asking you to guess a certain mystery place! Soon after St. Vincent’s College became DePaul University, athletes wore uniforms with large ‘D’s printed on the front. During a game, an announcer referred to the players as the “D-men,” a name that stuck and transformed into Blue Demons. In what decade did DePaul first get the nickname that led to our current team name?
Happy guessing! And remember these trivia rules:
