Where did the mascot for the Fighting Squirrels come from?
Mary Baldwin University
Among the very first students of Mary Baldwin University, then Augusta Female Seminary, was Mary Julia Baldwin. She was a pioneer and leader of her time that led the school through a very tumultuous era in American history, the Civil War. Mary Julia Baldwin's family crest, the fighting squirrel, is represented around the University and is proudly MBU's mascot, as it is a symbol and reminder of Mary Baldwin's legacy.
