You may have noticed three unexplained brick columns being built along sidewalks in a few spots on campus. According to Brad Moore, university architect and director of planning, design and construction management, they are for new signage denoting Elon University’s various residential neighborhoods.

Moore said that they are part of a larger “signage and wayfinding master plan” that is being implemented across campus. That master plan is also responsible for the new maroon signage in front of many residential and academic buildings that was debuted in the fall.
The plan currently includes three new brick signposts, two in the Global Neighborhood and one between the Danieley and Colonnades neighborhoods. Moore indicated that additional signs could be added “as needed”.
