  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families.

Falcons get new feathers

The University falcon mascots revealed their new costumes at the football game this past weekend.

The new costumes are more cartoon-like, with the falcons smiling and Frieda donning a ponytail.

“We were looking for something that was a completely new look,” said Michael Ginsberg, adviser to Freddie and Frieda.

The old falcon costumes had been used for the last 15 years. Ginsberg said now was a good time to replace them, because they had become old and worn.

A majority of the money used to pay for the new costumes was from private donations and former mascots.

According to Ginsberg, the money that came from former mascots was a sign of unity within the organization.

“I think it obviously shows we connected to them as students and they wanted to help further a tradition they were involved in,” he said.

Freddie and Frieda’s former duds will be placed in University archives.
