About Our Mascot

What's his name?
R.B. Bbhoggawact is the official name of the ACC Riverbat. Bbhoggawact is an acronym (minus the vowels) for the college's eight-county service area - Bastrop, Blanco, Hays, Gillespie, Gonzales, Williamson, Caldwell, and Travis.

R.B. Bbhoggawact is quite a mouthful, so you can just call him R.B.

Wait a second. What's a Riverbat?
A Riverbat is ACC's very own kind of bat. The "River" component speaks to the many rivers that run throughout our region, and bats are synonymous with Central Texas. They're intelligent and resourceful; bats also provide important services to the community and have the ability to soar high, just like our students and graduates.

Who/what does he represent?
R.B. Bbhoggawact represents the essence of the ACC mission and values. He's the symbol that unifies all of our campuses, people, and communities. He's a symbol of inspiration, pride, tradition, and resolve. He is ACC!
