In ways great and small, the identity of any given university is guided through history by the mascot with which they are associated. Some schools go fierce: Columbia Lions, Clemson Tigers and Baylor Golden Bears—oh my! Some schools go regional, such as the Ohio State Buckeyes, the Florida Gators (double dipping in ferocity as well) and the Nebraska Cornhuskers. So, when I first heard about Life University, I wondered what their mascot was. After I heard it was the Running Eagles, I have to be honest that I still wondered what their mascot was.
