Application for Isabella Cannon International Studies Pavilion

Download the 2004-2005 application here.

There's a new living/learning opportunity at Elon -- the Isabella Cannon International Studies Pavilion in the Academic Village. This facility provides a unique opportunity to further Elon's commitment to integrating learning in and out of the classroom.

Residents of the International Pavilion (IP) will:
  1. live, study and socialize in a facility that creates, cultivates and sustains an atmosphere for international learning while living in a multicultural environment;
  2. create an atmosphere that encourages study abroad for its residents and promotes study abroad and cultural understanding to the larger campus community;
  3. encourage conversational use of the languages taught and studied on campus for the residents and for the larger community.
Who will live in the International Pavilion?
International students and students majoring in International Studies, International Business or foreign languages may apply to reside in the International Pavilion. There is also a faculty member in residence.

What is the facility like? What about meal plans?
The IP, which is located just east of Mooney and Duke, consists of a two-bedroom apartment (for the resident faculty member), a classroom, a seminar room, a student lounge/kitchen and eleven double-occupancy rooms for students. This physical arrangement allows for classes and other educational and social events to be held in the pavilion.

Please note that while the IP has a kitchen, it cannot be used as the primary food preparation facility. You will have access to the kitchen for snacks, occasional meals and community events, however.

Juniors and seniors residing in the pavilion will be required to have a minimum 5 meal per week meal plan; freshmen and sophomores must have a 15, 19 or the unlimited meal plan. Residents will pay the regular room rates and be billed in the same manner as all residence hall students on campus.

Students may rent microfridges from the Office of Residence Life for their individual rooms. Students in the Academic Village are subject to all campus rules and regulations. No pets besides fish are allowed in the pavilions due to health codes.

I'm really interested! How do I apply?
First, download the application form in Word format. Please submit the completed application form and the required essay to Ms. Hiromi Sumiyoshi at 2375 Campus Box, Elon, NC 27244 or fax it to (336) 278-6692 to be considered for residency in the facility.

We will accept residents on a rolling basis until the pavilion is full. If you have further questions about applying, please contact Ms. Sumiyoshi (advisor) at (336) 278-6700 or sumiyosh@elon.edu and/or Dr. Sandy Seidel (faculty-in-residence) at sseidel@elon.edu.
