Elon Celebrates its 125th Anniversary

Saluting Our Past. Building Our Future.

Quasqui -- what? The 2013-2014 academic year is Elon's 125th anniversary, otherwise known as its quasquicentennial year. Throughout the year, the campus community is enjoying special events and celebrations to mark the university's remarktable history. 

This 125th anniversary exhibit is organized around three themes that distinguish Elon: resilience, innovation and community. These themes have sustained our university and provide a solid foundation for the bright days ahead.

We invite you to join us on campus for our yearlong celebration. And most importantly, they have relied on the power of the community ties that bind the generations of people who love Elon.
