Elephant Tree 

Campuswide Undergraduate Journal

“The Elephant Tree is the University’s literary journal for the publication of student-created poetry and fiction. Symbolically, the elephant tree has distinct significance. The trees are native to Southern California; they are known to be both rare and resilient, and grow in distinctive, sculptural forms. Their flowers are small but star-shaped, bursting forth in white or cream colors. The tree’s red sap was once thought to be a panacea–a medicine that allegedly cures all disease and prolongs life indefinitely.”
