What you should know about inviting Spartie to events

Spartie’s faceless 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.

Ideal Events for Spartie
  • Sporting events and games (where Spartie has room to maneuver)
  • Homecoming events or other campus traditions
  • Thwing Study Over and student social events
  • Tailgates
  • Parades (a vehicle would need to be available for Spartie)
Spartie's Limitations

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. Spartie will not operate well outdoors on hot days since breaks will have to be far too frequent to be worth-while.
