The Phoenix Pal Program pairs currently enrolled Elon students (U.S. and/or foreign) with newly admitted international students.
The way Elon University defines international students is broad and includes overseas U.S. American students, foreign students, dual citizens, and legal permanent-resident students because of cultural, linguistic, and social experiences each student brings from living and studying in different countries.
This program is part of Elon University's mission to train global citizens.
The objectives of the Phoenix Pal Program fall under the following goals:
Assist newly admitted students in getting to know Elon University by answering questions and providing helpful information for adjusting to their new environment
Encourage cultural and learning exchange among participants
Promote mutual understanding and respect among all parties involved
Promote and develop a lifelong friendship between current students and incoming new international students
