About Arvee

Arvee made his debut in late 2013 with his first public appearance taking place at CherryVale Mall around Christmas time. Arvee even had a chance to visit with Santa!

The name Arvee was chosen as part of a "Name the Mascot" contest that took place in January 2014. Over 350 entries were received and 10 finalists were invited to a special ceremony where the winning name was revealed at halftime of the RVC men's basketball game on February 5, 2014. The winning name of Arvee was submitted by Cristina Szterensus, who in addition to receiving a great prize package, also has bragging rights for life for naming Arvee for Rock Valley College!
