MU Voice -- Online Voting Begins on Nickname
Posted by Christine Hurt

As promised, the Marquette Nickname Advisory Committee has released a list of 10 nickname candidates, and online voting begins tomorrow.  Details on the vote is at

The 10 options are:  Blue and Gold; Explorers; Golden Avalanche; Golden Eagles; Golden Knights; Hilltoppers; Saints; Spirit; Voyagers; and Wolves.  Most of these options have some historical significance, and athletic teams at Marquette have been known as many of these over the years.  Voters also have the option of writing in an alternative nickname.  I received an email from a reader who proposed "Rangers," in honor of Marquette's extensive Tolkien collection. 

I, of course, will be writing in "Muskies."
