School of Communication


Halls of color and history

In August 2000, the School of Communications moved into a beautifully renovated building with stately white columns on the outside and state-of-the-art computer labs and TV studios inside.

We're in McEwen Communications Building, named for long-time Elon trustee Iris Holt McEwen. Built in 1968, McEwen served as the campus library until Belk Library was completed in 2000. McEwen then underwent a dramatic transformation in becoming the new home for the School of Communications.

We like a splash of color, so our main-floor hallway features carpet and walls in the primary colors of red, green and blue, the basic colors that create television pictures. Each classroom also features a wall in one of the three primary colors.

The graduate program and Sport & Event Management are located in historic Powell Building, home to the President's Office.
