Marquette Athletics is introducing "Iggy" as the name for the official golden eagle mascot, the department announced Monday morning.

Named after St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus, Iggy will continue to represent Marquette at competitions and various campus events in a manner in line with the Jesuit traditions and ideals of the university.

Other institutions with the same mascot name include Loyola Marymount (Lion), University of Scranton (Wolf) and Loyola Maryland (Greyhound).

Imagery Usage
  • The only change being made to the golden eagle costume will be the addition of "Iggy" to the back of any jerseys worn at athletic competitions by the mascot.
  • To begin, the updated mascot graphics will be utilized in licensing through the Marquette Spirit Shop and by the athletics marketing department in support of Kid's Club programming.
  • In the future, the graphics may be utilized by the department's varsity programs and across campus as an athletics secondary mark.  The MU monogram will continue to be the department's primary logo.
