Charlie Coyote photo

Charlie Coyote is the face of the University of South Dakota. We are committed to creating an exciting and interactive experience with both the student body and the Vermillion community. You will often see Charlie at community events, athletic events and charity events. If you do see him, be sure you give him a high five and get a picture with him. Don't forget to #YoteLife!

If you want Charlie to attend your event, please complete the Appearance Request Form. There is an hourly charge to have Charlie Coyote at your event. That amount will be included when we contact you to confirm your event.
