Traditions


The Golden Eagle is a prominent figure at Marquette, forever supporting his teams, bringing smiles to young and old, and
continually uplifting all who meet him. The Golden Eagle cheers at home men's and women's soccer games, volleyball games,
and men's and women's basketball games. The Eagle will occasionally travel for away men's or women's basketball games,
including post-season tournaments.


Interested in becoming the Golden Eagle for the 2013-2014 season?

We encourage all undergraduate students and incoming freshman to try-out. We are looking for outgoing and energetic
individuals who have a love for Marquette athletics and feel comfortable performing in front of large crowds. Being the
Marquette Golden Eagle is a paid job and requires a flexible schedule, since the eagle is a popular figure and making
periodic appearances at university sponsored events are a requirement.

Please email Mary Larkin for more information or with any questions you may have.
