Loy Center Neighborhood Courtyard
The Loy Center was given to Elon by Mr. Bill Loy in loving memory of his wife, Lib Apple Loy, a 1947 graduate of Elon. The Apple family gave Elon the land for the Loy Center courtyard at the formal dedication ceremony on November 1987. Since its inception in 1987, the university-owned Loy Neighborhood has tripled in size and now houses 19 chapter facilities.
Loy Center Neighborhood Spirit Rock
The Loy Neighborhood Spirit Rock has been a part of Elon University Greek Life since the dedication of the Loy Neighborhood in 1987. It symbolizes the pride, spirit, and unity of the chapters that make up the Greek Community.
The rock is used by the community during sorority and fraternity recruitment, Homecoming, and other special activities such as philanthropy and service events to celebrate and show pride in the Greek Community.
NPHC Memorial Garden
The NPHC Garden is a space for all members of the Elon community to appreciate the history of the National Pan-Hellenic Council and its member organizations. The NPHC Garden was designed after an extensive planning process involving many stakeholders. The monuments are beautiful, and while they are not traditional plots, we believe that they represent the Elon NPHC very well and provide a permanent place for NPHC organizations at Elon University.
In September of 2001, a university task force was created to consider the proposal and complete research as to what other institutions were installing in the plot tradition. In October of 2003, members of the administration traveled to several different institutions and developed a final proposal indicating that the location for a permanent memorial for Elon’s NPHC groups should be behind the Moseley Center at the top of the Loy Neighborhood, and that each chapter would be commemorated with a stone monument. In the Fall of 2004, Elon decided to design with the garden concept based on their research from other institutions. Elon and the NPHC members agreed this space should be preserved forever and treated with the respect and care that it deserves. The NPHC Garden will be a space for all members of the Elon community to appreciate the history of the National Pan-Hellenic Council and its member organizations. No permanent alterations will be made to the garden in order to protect its beauty for years to come.
