About Gnarls

Whether he’s showing off hs mediocre-at-best athletic abilities or randomly dancing at new friends, Gnarls likes to socialize.  Narwhals by nature do – so he’s happiest when he is with groups of fellow students. Find out more about who he is  on his bio page.


You might catch him greeting newbies at Oritentation Week, cheering on athletes at weekly intramural games or helping his recreation team members at various events.  Wherever he might be, you can easily track him using the hashtag #wheresgnarls on social media.


Gnarls knows that when we support each other on campus our pride and spirit grows, which is why he makes it a priority to attend TNS events. Would you like to see Gnarls at your next event?  Please fill out the form here to kick off that appearance process.
