Fun Facts

  • New students at Elon University receive an acorn, and after graduating they receive an oak sapling. These woodsy gifts celebrate the beginning of their college careers and subsequent growth, respectively.
  • Furman Moseley, an Elon University alum, inspired the school's tradition of giving each graduate a sapling after he gave the graduating class of 1991 a redwood sapling, commemorating their future growth—as well as his career in timber.
