Elon University plans 125th birthday celebration

Posted: Updated:

ELON, N.C. (AP) - Elon University has some big plans for its 125th birthday.

The school is marking the event on Tuesday with "A Day for Elon," which is described as a chance for members of the Elon family to support the university during the anniversary regardless of where they are.

Anyone associated with the school is being urged to wear Elon gear and take photos to share either on social media or by email.

The goal is to make "A Day for Elon" the greatest day of giving in the university's history. Gifts of all sizes and designations will count toward the total given during the campaign, and will support a range of areas within the university including the Phoenix Club, academic departments and student scholarships.
