CELEBRATE! is Elon's annual, weeklong celebration of student achievements in academics and the arts.
CELEBRATE! 2013 will be held April 22-April 27, 2013. Please see the links to the left to find the schedule of events. We will also be adding links below of coverage of the many CELEBRATE! events.
The Spring Undergraduate Research Forum (SURF) has been an Elon tradition since 1993. The annual Awards Day Ceremony sponsored by Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) has been a spring tradition recognizing exemplary achievements in academics and service since 1979. Since 2006, CELEBRATE! has brought together SURF, ODK and other events in a weeklong celebration.
Each year, hundreds of Elon University students are involved in activities during CELEBRATE! The week includes seminars, presentations, art exhibitions, plays, student showcases, dance and music performances, and much, much more. CELEBRATE! 2012 brings together the stimulation of academic inquiry and scholarly pursuit with the exhilaration of creative expression.
Beginning in 2008, an event honoring faculty scholarship joined the CELEBRATE! schedule of events. During this event, which occurs on the morning of SURF Day, faculty members from academic departments across campus will engage you with presentations related to their scholarly work. This year, we celebrate the breadth of scholarly activity through a Celebrate! Faculty Scholarship Poster session in McKinnon Hall. Faculty will share their scholarly research from disciplines all across the campus. This event is from 9 – 10 a.m. on Tuesday morning. Student SURF presentations will also take place in McKinnon; students will be available to discuss their posters starting at 9 a.m.
Mark your calendars, support the work of your peers and colleagues, learn, engage, enjoy...celebrate!
