Spalding University is changing mascots from the pelican to the golden eagle.

"The pelican will remain on the school's official seal and will be used in non-athletic areas, Spalding said in a news release.

According to the release, the pelican represents "peace, justice, service and spiritual values," and the golden eagle embodies "strength, courage and strong vision."

The eagle was selected by a committee including members of the school's alumni board and athletics advisory board, along with input from students."

(At least they didn't pick The Gold.)

Charity is described as "the act or feeling of benevolence, good will, or affection; God's benevolence toward people."

This benevolence is depicted in the Spalding University seal. Inside the seal, is a representation of a mother pelican, pecking her breast to draw blood to feed her young.

This is a representation of Christ's sacrifice for His people. The pelican, also used as Spalding's mascot, symbolizes the height of charity -the willingness to give of oneself for the benefit of others.

The mother pelican is willing to give anything for her young to thrive and grow.
