Okie dokie Artie chokie

Not many dolls can say this, but Momma is once again a proud artichoke!

Scottsdale Community College is a two-year college located on the eastern boundary of the city of Scottsdale, Ariz., on land belonging to the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. The lease was taken out in 1970 and will expire in 2069. The school is part of the Maricopa County Community College District.

An important part of the College’s history is encapsulated in its mascot – the Artichoke. Born during a period of student unrest in the early '70s, Artie the Artichoke was adopted as the school’s mascot to express a difference of opinion concerning budget priorities.

Originally intended to be a source of embarrassment, Artie has been embraced by students, athletes, staff, and the community as a beloved character.

The school's colors used to be a rebellious pink and white but are now becoming artichoke shades of green and gold.
