Mascot Info- The Fighting Hawk
A recent arrival to our Grand Forks campus has North Dakota school spirit soaring sky high. Our Fighting Hawk was migrating north when it spied the perfect perch on top of The Ralph. Scanning the locale, the bright green hawk was instantly impressed by the determination and resiliency of University of North Dakota students and athletic teams. Raptors use that same intense determination when stalking their prey and so The Fighting Hawk developed an instant bond with everything North Dakota… and forever pledging lifelong loyalty to our alma mater. Just like the North Dakota faithful, this is one tough and hard-working bird who is ready to team up with all of us to continue building our championship legacy. So, whether on the ice, court or field… the new mascot is prepared to cheer our student-athletes onto victory and see to it that we soar above each and every opponent! More about me!
