Coffee Klatch

The Coffee Klatch is an great opportunity for the intellectual engagement for all Elon students. Each semester, students gather after select campus events for coffee, dessert and stimulating conversation. Until there is a website to publicize these events, the Honors Progam wants to make sure interested students know about these opportunities.

Blogs

Istanbul has been a cultural crossroads for millennia. This Honors Fellows course open to first year students uses the city of Istanbul itself as a classroom, encouraging students to explore the city as a site of historical and religious significance and to investigate the contemporary relevance of this city to East and West. Read the recent student blogs for a glimpse into what past students have learned  about Turkey and sites such as the Hagia Sophia, the Sultan’s Palace, the Blue Mosque, ancient cisterns, the Grand Bazaar, Theodosian Walls, and the ruins of Ephesus.
