School of Communications hosts Fellows finalists

Seventy high school students who hail from Maine to Florida to Oklahoma came with family members to the Elon campus on March 1-2 for Fellows Weekend at the School of Communications.

They were finalists from among 165 applicants for the 20 Journalism and Communication Fellows positions for the incoming freshmen class. The new Fellows class will be selected based on high school grades, quality of coursework, SAT scores, an on-campus essay and an individual interview.

This will be the third Fellows class in the School of Communications.

Three Communications faculty members led Saturday morning seminars attended by students interested not only in being Communication Fellows but also Honors, Leadership, Teaching, Science and Business Fellows. Dean Paul Parsons spoke on "Freedom, Law, Ethics: The Greatest of the Three." Assistant professor Connie Book spoke on "America's Digital Revolution," and assistant professor Tom Nelson talked about "Common Currency."

Faculty members Jessica Gisclair, George Padgett, David Copeland and Gerald Gibson presented Saturday afternoon question-and-answer sessions for Fellows candidates and their parents. The faculty members were assisted by a number of Elon's current Communications Fellows.

The evening before, Communications faculty hosted a reception for the Fellows finalists and their families.
