is an anonymous pep squad
for Bowling Green State University
SICSIC was formed on October 5
by then University President Frank J. Prout as a secret, anonymous booster organization to promote more campus spirit. President Prout selected the first six members from The Key
, Bowling Green's annual yearbook, and invited them to meet him in his office at 12:45am and told the students to not tell anyone where they were going. The six undergraduates met with the President in his office and agreed to join the secret organization which they called SICSIC. Currently, SICSIC is composed of six undergraduates (two sophomores, two juniors, and two seniors). New members are chosen during the end of their freshman year in order to replace that year's graduating seniors.
The SICSIC members adorn halloween masks, jumpsuits and gloves. As of the 2008-2009 school year, the masks are of George Washington
, Donald Trump
, Queen Elizabeth
, Michael Jackson
, Abe Lincoln
, and Darth Vader
. SICSIC members travel around the field and stands during athletic events distributing candy and taking pictures with fans. SICSIC members are always masked and their identities are not revealed until the last home basketball game of their senior year, where they are unmasked in front of the student body.
