Photo of the Day: The Emory Eagle

For most of its 160-year history, Emory has been without an official mascot. In 1960, The Wheel's sports editor, David Kross 62C, decided it was high time for the University's varsity sports teams to have some kind of identity, eventually settling on the eagle (also known as "Swoop") because "it was easy to say, and eagles can be reasonably hostile." The statue above--which does, indeed, look resonably hostile--lives between Cannon Chapel and White Hall.
