Stiles students have reason to rejoice: Shamoose! No, it’s not a new cheer; rather, master’s aides have finally selected this name from over 160 submissions for the new goldfish in the master and dean’s office.
In an e-mail to students, Master Stephen Pitti said that “Nemo” was one of the most common names suggested, with one student flipping the name to make “Omen.” Some of our favorite names included Admiral Ackbar (‘It’s a trap!’), Nostradamus and, of course, James Franco.
Students are invited to visit Shamoose in Swing Space and call it anything (“It’ll never know,” Pitti said).
Allen David ’13, who suggested Shamoose, will enjoy a “nice, celebratory seafood dinner” courtesy of Ezra Stiles.
