Hofstra University is one of a few Universities throughout the country that uniquely features two mascots: Kate and Willie Pride, a lion and lioness. The two mascots are named after the University's benefactors William Hofstra and his wife Kate Davidson.

In summer 2001, a team of university officials under the direction of President Emeritus James M. Shuart developed and designed what is today known as Kate Pride and Willie Pride.
