There's a big push at Rutgers University for more diversity regarding their mascot, the Scarlet Knight.

On the mascot's Twitter profile he calls himself the best knight in all the land and the face of Rutgers University.

However, the student body says the school is made up of many faces...not just one Caucasian male.

Rutgers University's newspaper says the student assembly is rallying for a team of Scarlet Knights - a more diverse one they say that includes a Latino, Asian and black mascot, a woman and even third gender knight.

Different student organizations would decide which one represents them best.

The Scarlet Knight has been the Rutgers mascot since 1955.
