"Working with the Phoenix from concept to completion was a great journey. Each detail, down to the color, shape, and design of the bird's beak, was discussed; the committee wanted to make sure the Phoenix completely embodied Swarthmore's identity. It was such a blast to play with all of the different ideas and put them together to create the character we see today: big, garnet, fluffy, and all fun! I hope generations of Swatties will enjoy the Phoenix for years to come."
