					                        The
Legend
of
the
Elon
University
Phoenix


Throughout
history
there
is
told
the
legend
of
the
rare
and
remarkable
Phoenix,
a
crimson

and
gold
bird
that
lived
500
years.
It
was
sleek,
swift
and
strong
‐
the
most
marvelous
bird

ever
created
by
human
imagination.
At
the
end
of
its
life,
with
death
approaching,
it
built

a
 nest
 in
 an
 oak
 tree
 and
 was
 consumed
 in
 flames
 ignited
 by
 the
 sun.
 From
 the
 ashes

emerged
the
next
Phoenix
‐
reborn
and
renewed,
with
strength
forged
in
fire.



Fire,
 too,
 has
 shaped
 the
 history
 of
 Elon
 University.
 The
 disastrous
 fire
 of
 1923
 all
 but

destroyed
 Elon.
 Gone
 were
 Main
 building,
 college
 records,
 classrooms,
 the
 library
 and

chapel.
 But
 within
 days
 of
 the
 fire,
 Elon
 trustees
 set
 in
 motion
 the
 plan
 for
 Elon
 to
 rise

from
the
ashes,
stronger
than
ever.


The
Phoenix
is
a
powerful
leader
and
an
emblem
of
immortality.
It
is
a
perfect
symbol
for

a
school
that
is
constantly
renewing
and
re‐creating
itself.


The
 Elon
 motto,
 Numen
 Lumen,
 embraces
 intellectual
 and
 spiritual
 light.
 And
 so
 too,

throughout
history,
the
Phoenix
has
served
as
a
symbol
of
light
and
knowledge.



The
 Phoenix
 is
 timeless
 and
 unique.
 It
 perfectly
 describes
 an
 athletics
 program
 and
 an

institution
that
are
rising
to
new
levels
of
excellence.



         There
is
only
one
Phoenix.
There
is
only
one
Elon.

Catch
the
fire!
