Regardless of the roles they play in BU games, Bishop’s students, friends and alumni are all Gaiters.

Athletics

“The Gaiters” moniker was chosen as the nickname for the Bishop’s University football team in 1947. This nickname was adopted to help fire up the enthusiasm of fans – and clearly, it worked.

Today, decades later, Gaiter Pride continues to run deep and strong, not only on the BU campus in Lennoxville but also throughout the world. The Bishop’s University Gaiters have become more than just a football team – what was once just a name for a sports team is now an identity that transcends sports disciplines and athletic inclination.
