“Hoo” will be the next Oakley?

The search for a new Texas Woman’s University mascot has begun. This opportunity is suggested for anyone who is interested in promoting school spirit and has the dance moves to do so. All candidates selected to be the mascot will be a part of the Spirit Program.

TWU’s mascot is a newly added aspect of student life. Two years ago, TWU selected its very first official athletics mascot, the owl of Minerva, now given the name Oakley the Owl. Since that moment, few individuals have had the opportunity to fill this role.        

There are requirements to audition to be the TWU mascot. To be considered for the position, all candidates must meet certain pre-requisites. First, the candidate has to have applied and been accepted to TWU and be a student at TWU. The applicant must also be in good academic standing as determined by the coach and the university.

Additionally, the candidate must be willing to commit to at least 15 hours a week of practice and events. For this reason, it is also important that the candidate be very flexible with his or her schedule because it is subject to change.

A final requirement is that because the mascot is considered to be a student-athlete, that individual must abide by all the standards of the Spirit program.

The auditions for the mascot will be held on the Denton campus, April 13. The online application required for this position is a google form and must be completed and turned in by April 8.

If interested in this opportunity or for more information, contact the Pioneer Pride Dance Team’s coach and sponsor, Allison Fields, at or (940) 898-2908.

All individuals interested in auditioning must also fill out an application, which can be found at here.
