Events and Community

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.

Honors Peer Mentors of the Year

Every year, students nominate their peers for Honors Peer Mentor of the Year to recognize the "veteran" Honors student who has gone above and beyond in mentoring their first year student. Past award winners are:

  • 2015: Mary Rouse and Nicholas Massey
  • 2014: Michelle Reissig and Claire Mayo


Both Turkey and Italy have been cultural crossroads for millennia. This Honors Fellows course open to first year students uses city and landscape as classroom, encouraging students to explore one of these two countries as a site of historical and religious significance and to investigate the contemporary relevance of the region to East and West. Read the recent student blogs for a glimpse into what past students have learned at sites such as the Hagia Sophia, ancient cisterns, the Grand Bazaar, Theodosian Walls, the ruins of Ephesus in Turkey, and St. Peters Basilica and the Vatican, the Roman Coliseum, The Valley of Temples in Sicily, and the canals of Venice in Italy.
