ABOUT OUR MASCOT
Dating back to Greek mythology, the phoenix is a bird capable of being born again from its own ashes. Brilliantly colored with feathers like an eagle or peacock, the phoenix also represented the sun. The phoenix is a metaphor for starting again, overcoming life's obstacles.
A large group of phoenixes is called an odyssey, which (besides the famous poem) is also defined as an intellectual or spiritual quest.
