Siggi - The Mascot
Our mascot Siggi is an European bison. Since these animals were released into the wild of the Rothaar mountains in 2010, they have become symbolic for Siegen-Wittgenstein. This is why the bison was chosen as the University of Siegen's mascot. It underlines the close links between the university and the region. Siggi keyrings are available from the university shop. The large-format Siggi is only used for publicity purposes and is not on sale. Meet also Siggi’s relatives in the Wisent-Welt.
In 2021 Siggi was drawn by students in a drawing competition. Our student Annika Köster took first place with her drawings. Congratulations!
