Faculty, staff and families celebrate seniors at graduate receptions 

The one-hour school receptions allowed students to introduce parents to faculty mentors, laugh with friends and celebrate personal transformation.  

On their last full day as Elon seniors, students in the university’s four undergraduate schools took some time to mix and mingle with parents, faculty and other graduating students before Saturday's Commencement ceremony.

Parents were introduced to favorite professors as students shared hugs and laughs over cookies and lemonade.

For many graduates, Saturday's ceremony is an accomplishment shared by many within the Elon community – professors, parents, siblings and peers. 

As students celebrated, their parents reflected on the ways in which they’ve watched their children transform since enrolling at Elon four years ago. View the video below to learn more.
