The Boston College athletic department must be a big fan of children’s books — particularly the “Flat Stanley” and “Where’s Waldo?” series. Flat Stanley is a popular elementary reader in which the main character, Stanley Lambchop, is a flat young boy who travels the world. To get kids interested in reading, parents and teachers have children print off a copy of their own Flat Stanley and take pictures with him everywhere they go.

Boston College decided it could create its own version of Flat Stanley, although its name resembles Where’s Waldo instead. Either way, fans can now print off their own Baldwin the Eagle mascot to spread their Boston College fandom around the world.

It appears that Baldwin has already taken a trip to Disney — how far will that eagle fly?
