The Ibero has sport facilities to be used by its students. The University takes parts in various competitions in some of Mexico's most popular college sports. The mascot of the campus is the Wild Goose. The legend says that a cloudy afternoon a flock of geese passed while migrating south. One of them, flying wounded, landed to rest in the lake of the Ibero Puebla accompanied by two of his companions. It was then that a Jesuit priest fond of birds observed this behavior and decided to find out more about these animals, finding that they are intelligent animals and working as a team.
