Backstory: The marauder was destined from birth to do one thing: marauder. “To marauder” means to roam around, always looking for new quests and treasure. While, y’know, occasionally setting some things on fire.
What does it all mean?So now that you’ve got the gist of what a marauder is, now what? With all this info you were just bombarded with, you could write a small children’s book. But in all seriousness, why would we want a Scottish pirate known for so many unsavory things to represent our very non-unsavory school? Why don’t we have the MAC Moose or some other “normal” mascot?
Well, when it comes to sports, academics, or arts, we dominate. The idea is that—just like the marauder—we conquer and destroy, (metaphorically) burning other schools’ teams down in our quest to be the best. Rather than pillaging for goods and money, we fight to bring glory and achievement to the student body and to the school. Whether it be the highest academic standings, a great Cappies review, or a shiny new trophy for basketball, we aim for the highest bar. At the end of the day, we’re always hungry for a new quest and for new achievements, just like the audacious marauder.
