To commemorate the 40th anniversary of Cuesta College (April 2003), commission the creation of a large bronze cougar sculpture to be placed on the SLO Campus at Cougar Park. 

Dale Evers, Cuesta College Honored Alumnus Class of 1982, and renowned artist, designed and sculpted a life-sized cougar (Cuesta mascot) titled, "The Launch."

Replicas of the bronze sculpture are available for alumni and friends of Cuesta College to acquire.

  • The Study is a beautiful 6 inches of bronze sculpture. Only 100 signed and numbered editions are available each for a gift of $1,000.
  • The Thesis is 16 inches with only 10 signed and numbered editions available for a gift of $5,000 each.

Obtain a cougar now and leave your legacy. Your name will be inscribed on the plaque mounted at the base of the full-scale sculpture located on the SLO Campus in Cougar Park.
