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.
