Being Mike the Tiger

Mike the Tiger is LSU's biggest fan. He makes is appearance at nearly all sporting events, home and away. Whether men's or women's athletics you are sure to find Mike busy at what he does best: helping with crowd interaction, making people laugh, and maintain a good face for the university. When Mike isn't busy cheering on his fellow Tigers he is around the community at various charity and promotional events, weddings, school events, and birthday parties.

Team Mike is a group of students formed to take care of Mike and his busy schedule. It is necessary to have Mike at every possible event, rain or shine, with the highest regard to spirit. The people in this group are also called to have a high spirit for LSU as they are also at various athletic events. Team Mike is looking for a well-rounded, dedicated individual who is outgoing and can help this program grow.
