Golden Eagle mascot gets a makeover

Cal State L.A.’s Eddie to debut new look, cheers Sept. 23

Picture of new Golden Eagle mascot.

Looking dapper in new wingtips and faux feathers, Cal State L.A.’s mascot—Eddie the Golden Eagle—will debut his new look and present new cheers as Cal State L.A.’s soccer teams host Dominguez Hills in a Sept. 23 doubleheader.

The men’s soccer match will begin 4:30 p.m., followed by the women’s at 7 p.m.—both at the University’s Jesse Owens Track and Field.

The new Golden Eagle costume—with its traditional gold and black—will bear Cal State L.A.’s current athletics logo and represent the University’s competitive spirit. Cal State L.A.’s original Golden Eagle mascot was introduced in 1981.

The new costume is created by Carol Flemming Mascot Costume Design Studio in consultation with Cal State L.A.’s Division of Intercollegiate Athletics, and has been described as being “more comfortable” and “easier to move around in.”

Eddie the Golden Eagle often appears on campus to promote Cal State L.A. pride and to raise students’ interest in Golden Eagle athletic games.

In 2007 and 2008, the “old” Golden Eagle appeared on national television with fellow mascots in an ad campaign to promote responsibility.
