Athletic Team Name

When Mississippi Woman's College became co-educational and started competitive athletic team names, the name "Crusader" was chosen. In modern parlance, a crusader is one who is dedicated to a worthy cause, who is committed to achieving a goal, and upholds the highest standards of integrity and character. Should a military image be involved, it is a spiritual one as described in Eph. 6:10-17- truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation, and the Word of God.
