DePauw Showing Off a "New" Bell

DePauw Showing Off a "New" Bell

May 18, 2001

May 18, 2001, Greencastle, Ind. - For generations, the phrase “winning the bell” at DePauw University meant besting Wabash College in the annual Monon Bell football classic. But this year, DePauw has two bells in its possession: the Monon, and the Southern Athletic Collegiate Conference's (SCAC) President's Trophy. The trophy, which is a 300-pound railroad bell, is on proud display in DePauw's Memorial Student Union Building through Monday, May 21.

DePauw won the prize by accumulating more points than any other SCAC school. In fact, DePauw finished with the highest all-sports trophy point total in league history with 800 points, and had conference championships in seven sports. You can learn more by clicking here

The President's Trophy is currently positioned on the balcony overlooking the food court. Its permanent location has yet to be determined.
