Meet Our Mascot: JEGOS
During summer 2011, Tohono O’odham Community College asked for mascot suggestions from the community and then held open voting for the top choices. The new mascot was announced on Thursday, July 21, 2011, at the TOCC Basketball Tipoff at the Baboquivari High School Gymnasium, when the Men’s Basketball Team was introduced.

Jegos is the windy dust storm that comes before the monsoon rain. Powerful wind kicks up the dust, bends trees, and sweeps across the land before the rain pours down. Jegos represents the powerful Tohono O’odham Community College athletes coming your way.

Jegos is a Tohono O’odham word pronounced something like jug’ ohs with emphasis on the first syllable. The e makes a short ŭ or schwa ə sound; the o is a long ō.
