In honor of Valentine’s Day and the 2011 mascot, we wanted to send a special message from our staff to you:
2005 was the first year iGosia had a mascot - the year of the Armadillo.
2010 was the year of the Moose and also a great Jimmy year!
Finally, it’s here. The moment you’ve all been waiting for. The unveiling of the 2011 mascot. Drumroll, please…..Ta-Da!
2011 is the year of the OWL!
Now, for iGo Alumns, you know that each year students get an awesome team shirt which features the mascot. This year, we’re doing something a little different! A CONTEST!
That’s right. We want YOU to design the coolest looking team shirt that features an owl and our slogan “Make Him Famous.” (Due to the locations our teams go, please do not include any sort of spiritual reference or “iGo Global” in your design.) The people of iGosia will review the designs and we’ll post our favorites online and let you vote for your favorite t-shirt design! The winning design will become the 2011 team shirt!
Hurry! Designs are due by February 14! Submit your designs to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include your full name in the email!
At iGosia we celebrate the 12 days of Christmas. Check out this sweet video!

From iGosia to you - “We hope you have top of sweet celebration with families this season of holiday!”
As many of you know, iGosia brings with it many interesting features - most notably, its people. Below we’ve highlighted four of our favorites (check out the bios underneath the pictures) and we want you to vote for YOUR favorite iGosian! You may very well have encountered this very iGosian at Base Camp this summer. If so, be sure to leave a comment about your experience.
1. The Fake Bus Pass Salesperson If you’re looking for the “bus to iGosia” you’ve come to the wrong place. Despite any promises she may make, her ticket will only grant you access to a “bus tour iGosia” As if selling you a worthless bus pass was not enough, she refuses to negotiate pricing with anyone. Offering anything less than 5 iGo will result in a verbal reprimanding with such intensity that it may bring you to tears.
2. Almost a Security Guard After being rejected as a real security guard and being denied the official black shirt, she has made it her ambition to prove herself by enforcing food laws during the culture meal. Note the baggy clothes and intense facial expression as she tries to look bigger and tougher than she actually is. She doesn’t necessarily enjoy inflicting pain on American thieves and stooges, but she is willing to do whatever it takes to prove herself in order to become a real iGosian security guard.
3. The Non-Salesman Most iGosians at the market will go to great lengths to get you to buy their products, but not him. He has made it his sole priority to remind foreign customers at the market that certain products are “No for Sale.” Regardless of whether or not you try to purchase an item from him, you will certainly know before the closing of the market that his items cannot be purchased.
4. Silent Salesperson This mysterious woman is known for the unexplainable swings in her pricing of certain items and the fact that she never talks…ever. Several theories have arisen as to why nobody as ever heard her speak. It could be: 1. The result of a physical condition. 2 Insecurity due to her inadequate English. 3. An attempt to make herself seem even more mysterious. 4. An extra means of evasiveness to prevent people from trying to negotiate pricing.
