Fun Facts

  • There are two mascots at Bowling Green State University: Freddie and Frieda the Falcons! Freddie came about in 1950, and Frieda joined in 1966 as Mrs. Freddie Falcon, but re-emerged in 1980 as Freddie's little sister sidekick.
  • Shhh! There is a secret society of just 6 chosen students at Bowling Green State University. Since 1946, 2 sophomores, 2 juniors, and 2 seniors each year join SIC SIC. They wear masks and overalls, never revealing themselves but boosting the spirit of the student body through signs and appearing at athletic events. And if anyone's identity is revealed, they're instantly replaced!
