Freshman painting 17-foot phoenix
One Big Bird

It took one survey firm — Mau and Associates — 20 gallons of paint, about 20 rollers and hundreds of students, but the Big (17’ by 17’) Phoenix is now a semi-permanent fixture between the University Union and Mary Ann Cofrin Hall. FOCUS organizers hope to make the painting of the Phoenix an annual rite of passage for new freshmen.
