The University of New Mexico is celebrating 131 years of bringing higher education to the Land of Enchantment. Lobo Day is UNM’s annual birthday party– an opportunity to reflect on our history as an institution and celebrate all the contributions UNM has made to the community.

“Lobo day is an incredible event," said ASUNM President Adam Biederwolf. "Not only do we celebrate the 131st birthday of a great institution but we also get to celebrate the current and past generations of being a Lobo for 100 years.”

This year is also the 100-year anniversary of the Lobo being adopted as the UNM Mascot. To honor the occasion, Lobos can enjoy a throwback 8-bit video game available on both desktop and mobile. Help Lobo Louie dodge tumbleweeds and pinõn trees to get a high score!

Students, staff, faculty and alumni are invited to attend the birthday celebration in the SUB Atrium from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with arcade games, a photobooth and cake.

There will also be free t-shirts for UNM students with a Lobo ID (limited quantity available). At noon, a photographer will take the annual birthday celebration photo, which will hang in the SUB.

This event is co-sponsored by UNM Communications and Marketing and the ASUNM Lobo Spirit Committee.
