How a pot-bellied pig became big man on campus at SDSU

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diego State students love their football and basketball teams, but there's a new face on campus that's becoming a fan favorite.

His name is Melvin the Pig and SDSU students can't keep their hands off the hog.

"It's so cute. You don't usually see pigs on campus,” said one student.

Chris Hudson and his roommates take Melvin everywhere. In fact he’s turned out to be a real Spring Break money maker. Case in point, the students took the lovable swine to Las Vegas and charged people to have their picture taken with him.

As Jeff Zevely explains in the above video, CBS News 8 first learned about Melvin when he unknowingly wandered through Abbie Alford's live shot one night at 11:00 p.m.
