Happy Wednesday everyone!
So you may be wondering about the title of my email, but truly there are some unique and innovative events and activities that are going on at Elon these days – it truly makes me want to be an undergraduate student at Elon University again!
To give you a sampling of some of these events and activities
- On Thursday, October 16th, Republican vice-presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin will be speaking on Elon’s campus. Whether you are supporting the McCain/Palin ticket or the Obama/Biden ticket, it surely promises to be an amazing opportunity! Click here to check out some of the details of her visit to campus. By the way, Elon also hosted former President Bill Clinton earlier this past spring when he was campaigning on behalf of his wife, Senator Hilary Clinton.
- While we are on the topic of speakers at Elon, former U.S. Secretary of State, Madeline Albright, and current CNN news anchor, Anderson Cooper, will be speaking at Elon University this spring. Former U.S. Sec. of State Madeline Albright will be the speaker at Elon’s Spring Convocation for Honors in March and Anderson Cooper will be doing a special lecture in April.
- In about two weeks, Elon University’s Musical Theater department will put on its fall musical, “Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street“. I have never seen the movie, but I am waiting to watch it until AFTER I see Elon’s production!
- Interested in skiing in Colorado? Elon Outdoors is taking students out to Colorado to go skiing in December after exams are over – not a bad way to relax after the stress of exams!
- Looking for something to do THIS Saturday night? Why not watch a *FREE* showing of the latest Batman film, “The Dark Knight” on the lawn sponsored by our Student Union Board. By the way, did I mentioned this was free? 🙂
- Elon University is making significant steps in “going green”! You can check out our new Sustainability website here and see that we’re not just saying that we are “green”, but we are actually making it happen!
And this is just a sampling of some of the exciting and innovative events that are occuring at Elon this year….
It definitely makes me want to be a student at Elon again!
