School of Education helps promote early interest in college among local third graders
In an effort to promote early interest in college for young students, 119 third graders from Hillcrest Elementary School participated in tours and simulations at the Cable School, a restored schoolhouse located behind Rhodes Stadium.
During their visit, the students learned what school and learning was like in the 1850s. The third graders interacted with student-athletes in the Alumni Field House by participating in a Q & A session. In addition, Elon University Odyssey scholars, staff from the Center for Access and Success, faculty, and students from the School of Education lead students in tours around campus.
