Would you like Spartie to participate in your on-campus event? The SA&L Office is taking requests for Spartie to appear at university department and student organization events. There is no better way to show Spartan spirit then to have our beloved Spartie interacting with your audience.
Spartie’s friendly façade is perfect for close encounters with students, where a rallying icon is needed. Spartie is able to interact with guests, pull silly pranks, dress appropriately for the event (i.e. wearing purple beads during the Power of Purple kickoff event) and be a comic relief for the guests and program directors.
When Spartie is at a sporting or indoor event, a handler is needed because the mascot needs to take frequent breaks to avoid overheating and exhaustion.
Important Questions to Consider
Spartie has been one of our beloved mascots since the early '90s and has served the program with distinction. Spartie is non-verbal, a bundle of energy and also truly loves CWRU!
- Sporting events and games (where Spartie has room to maneuver)
- Homecoming events or other campus traditions
- Thwing Study Over and student social events
- Parades (a vehicle would need to be available for Spartie)
Spartie’s limitations include small areas, such as banquets or dinners where there is not enough space to maneuver. Spartie’s antics are also not appropriate for more official events, where the university should be represented in a more serious light. Spartie will not operate well outdoors on hot days since breaks will have to be far too frequent to be worthwhile.
Event requests should be made at least 2 weeks before event date.
