Narrative:
The Lane College bell symbolizes triumph over the many challenges confronting the College over the years since its founding. It was incorporated into the emblem on official college stationery in the mid-1990s. The bell was originally rung to signal changing of classes, meals, and the call to chapel; now it is largely ceremonial and rung only on occasions of the highest significance in the life of the college.
