Elon 101 class of first-year Journalism and Communications Fellows
culminated with a November dinner at the home of Dean Paul Parsons.
Elon 101 is
an orientation class for first-year students. Led by Parsons and
teaching assistant Amy Jo Jenkins, the new Fellows class enjoyed
a number of special activities during and outside of their weekly
Thursday morning class sessions. They toured the offices of Elon
University student-media organizations, reviewed the Elon curriculum,
analyzed the distinction between media law and media ethics, participated
in an outdoor challenge course, analyzed their own Myers-Briggs
test results, visited with eight School of Communications faculty
members, toured each others' residence-hall rooms, had individual
advising sessions with the dean, and traveled on a three-day study
tour to media sites in Atlanta.
the 19 Fellows, plus teaching assistant Amy Jo Jenkins, visited
the dean's home for pizza, games and conversation. Two of the Fellows
were participating that evening in the Model United Nations program,
and another was in a hockey game.
