According to a March 2008 edition of the Voyager, UWF will have a fight song once SGA decides through voting.

Mascot

UWF's official mascot is the Argonaut, a mythical group of Greek sailors, who accompanied Jason to Colchis in his quest for the Golden Fleece. However, the official logo of the institution is the Chambered Nautilus; because of this, students jokingly refer to themselves as the UWF "Fighting Seashells."cite web |url=http://www.ricksblog.biz/?p=2599 |title=UWF Article |accessdate=2008-05-24 |publisher=Ricksblog |date=2008-05-23]
