INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — It's official.

Butler University mascot Blue III, better known as Trip, will be calling it quits this month.

Trip's twitter account posted that the young Blue is picking things up quickly.

"I’m feeling good about passing the collar off to him. In fact, let’s say we do that on 2/29 at Hinkle Fieldhouse...see you then!" the post reads.

All fans are encouraged to wear white and the first 800 students will get free T-shirts.

Trip proudly represented Butler University for the last eight years.
