Monte 2.0

Monte’s had a makeover! Niagara’s symbol of school spirit has a fresh look, complete with streamlined wings, taloned feet, his very own basketball uniform, and a “fierce” expression sure to intimidate rivals at the Gallagher Center and the Dwyer Arena. But this new Monte has a softer side, too, and can be seen greeting students and visitors at numerous NU events. Introduced at the Valentine’s Day basketball match between NU and Canisius, the updated eagle is the collaborative effort of Athletics, Campus Activities, and Student Government. Look for him the next time you’re on Monteagle Ridge.
