UW-L Eagle graphic

Let's try naming the UW-L Eagle one more time.

Earlier this year a name was chosen for our UW-L Eagle mascot. Unfortunately, Eddie the Eagle also happens to be the name of the mascot for the National Rifle Association. The NRA will not allow UW-L to use Eddie the Eagle for the name of our mascot. Therefore, we are asking for your help to Name the Eagle one more time.

The first five names below are the mascot name finalists (those other than Eddie) from our original mascot naming contest. The name Colbert has been added to the pool of names via a student petition campaign. There is also the option when voting online to write in a mascot name of your choice.

  • Baldy
  • Edgar
  • Ernie
  • Screech
  • Talon
  • Colbert
Vote Online Now

Voting is now open and will run until midnight, Friday, May 8th.

Anyone with a current UW-L email address can vote online for one of the above nominated names or write in a name. Only one vote will be allowed per email address.

So, go ahead and cast your vote. Our campus now has one more opportunity to Name the Eagle.
