Happy (belated) Birthday Elon!

Yesterday marked Elon’s 125th birthday. “A Day for Elon” was celebrated with a special Founders Day College Coffee with special guests, J. Earl Danieley, J. Fred Young and Leo M. Lambert, the three living presidents of the University.

Elon Student’s gathered around the Phi Beta Kappa plaza, decked out in their maroon and gold, to wish Elon a Happy Birthday as well as to grab some delicious birthday cake. (What birthday is complete without a cake?)

During the celebration, Twisted Measure, one of Elon’s a capella groups, sang Happy Birthday to our school and a tree was planted by the 3 presidents as a special Founder’s day tradition.
