How Western got their nickname…
  • The Bronco’s nickname dates back to 1939 and was submitted by a WMU alumnus John Gill.
  • Before the name Broncos came along, the nickname Hill Toppers was used reflecting the college’s original Prospect Hill campus.
  • The name Hill Topper was changed due to other institutions having a similar name.
  • Later in 1988, “Buster Bronco” became Western’s mascot and is well known by everyone still today.
