Fellows candidates visit
Selection process now under way

 

Ninety students from across the United States were guests at Elon's School of Communications Fellows Weekend March 7 and 8. The students and their parents were treated to campus tours and special activities during their stay.

The School of Communications hosted a social event the evening of March 7 at which prospective fellows planning to enter Elon in the fall of 2003 were given the opportunity to meet faculty members, talk with current Communications Fellows and visit with representatives of campus media organizations such as WSOE, The Pendulum and ESTV.

March 8 was a workday for the fellows candidates, as they took part in individual interview sessions with Elon faculty members and each attended a class and wrote about it. Twenty fellows will be selected from the 90 applicants. These sessions, in addition to the students' high school records, participation in media-oriented activities and test scores, help determine who those 20 fellows will be.

A number of the fellows, but not all of them, receive a Fellows Scholarship. Communications Fellows are expected to be leaders in the classroom and are required to be active in campus media and Journalism/Communications organizations. They begin their studies in a common Elon 101 course and in honors sections of Communications in a Global Society and Digital Media Convergence. They are expected to participate in the university's study abroad program, and they are awarded a travel grant. Fellows are also enrolled in a special section of the capstone Senior Seminar course and are expected to complete an undergraduate research project in that course.
