Students win honors in Model UN simulation

The Elon University Model United Nations Society participated over the weekend in a crisis simulation organized by the Princeton University International Relations Club.

The Feb. 27 - March 1 contest focused on Eastern Europe. Bobby Chamberlain won an award as the undersecretary of the National Intelligence Organization for Turkey; Kyle Perren won an award as the governor of the National Bank for Albania; and Cedric Pulliam’s committee, Macedonia, was recognized as the best committee in the conference.

Twelve Elon Model UN students attended the simulation. Elon competed with such schools as the United States Military Academy at West Point, Duke University, the University of Virginia and institutions from around the world, including teams from Canada, China and Germany.

Elon’s MUN will organize its own crisis simulation focused on the Middle East for International Relations classes on April 4-5 and a Security Council simulation for Global Experience classes on April 26-27.
