A new exhibit in the EUC connector focuses on the university’s dual personality. Namely, Minerva and the Spartan.
The two part exhibit explains the origins of our patron goddess, Minerva, and how she grew to become the symbol of the university. You’ll also find out why the Spartan was picked as the mascot for our athletic teams (a hint-it happened after we became co-educational!), while showing some of the changes the mascot has undergone through the years. The exhibit will be up through August 30th and we hope it helps with any confusion our SOAR students may be having in reconciling UNCG’s split personalities.
