Interesting. I have always had a 'thing' for oaks and now I have learned even more. My youngest attends Elon Univ. in NC. I believe their name means oak. When the students enter Elon, they receive an acorn to symbolize the beginning of their college careers. When students graduate they each receive a Shumond oak sapling symbolizing the growth students have experienced during their time at Elon as well as the growth that they are sure to experience in years to come. Everything at Elon is about oaks and acorns. It is wonderful! Thank you for sharing.
