Evening for Elon events offer alumni, parents and friends the chance to reconnect with the university*****
The Elon University Alumni Association is once again hosting a series of Evening for Elon events in various cities to give local alumni, parents and friends the chance to reconnect with each other and the university. These events include an update on the university’s strategic plan, The Elon Commitment, given by President Lambert or another member of university staff.
The most recent Evening for Elon was held at The Metropolitan Club in New York City on Thursday, September 20, 2012. Elon trustee Ed Doherty and wife Joan Doherty sponsored the event. The Evening for Elon in New York City started with two Pathways sessions, formatted as panel discussions between Elon faculty, alumni, students and parents. One session, moderated by Raghu Tadepalli, the new dean of Elon’s Love School of Business, covered the global economy and preparing students for success. Kirby Wahl, associate professor of performing arts, led the other session on the topic of the business of Broadway and the arts in New York City.
The evening included various alumni performances, including a new arrangement of the alma mater and renditions of two songs from Broadway musicals composed by Elon alumni.
Events in other regions are scheduled for the coming months. Trustee Dr. William Herbert ’68 and wife Marsha Herbert will host an Evening for Elon at their home in Charlottesville, VA on Tuesday, October 9, 2012. An Evening for Elon will also be held in Boston in November 2012.
