History: The WLC mascot project has been on the mind of students for many years. In 2015, after new branding and updated facilities, a group of dedicated students on the Student Senate decided it was time to formally move the project forward.
Purpose: The presence of the WLC Warriors mascot on campus will help promote "The Warrior Way" by boosting crowd spirit, showing support at events, and by serving as a representative of the college.
Why Warriors? Wisconsin Lutheran College is represented as the Warriors to reinforce the Scripture passage from Ephesians that reminds us all to bear God's armor. Ephesians 6: 11 & 17: "Put on the full armor of God ... take up the shield of faith ... the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit."
