The Student Government Association entertained the idea of starting a new tradition with “Legacy,” also known as the Coyote Statue, at its regular meeting
A dedication ceremony for the statue will be held Oct. 5 at 11 a.m., in conjunction with Dakota Days festivities. Before then, SGA wants to begin a campus-wide tradition such as rubbing the coyote’s nose for good luck before a test or even patting its back.
“Something silly,” SGA President Alissa VanMeeteren said. “But most traditions are silly when they start out.”
Another suggested tradition was to have the student body camp out around the statue the night before its dedication.
SGA Senator Shiloh Day agreed that it would be a good idea to help protect the statue before it is officially unveiled.
“It could be a tradition that started with us,” VanMeeteren said. “When we dedicate this statue, that is going to be tradition from that day on.”
Ideas that were thrown around for the Coyote Statue campout included games, a movie or even possibly a bonfire and fireworks.
