Elon University’s Charleston Alumni Chapter presents “Elon 102: What They Didn't Teach You in College”
at the Renaissance Charleston Historic District from 6:30 to 8:30 PM on Wednesday, April 27th.
This year's event will begin with a reception followed by rotating breakout sessions as we discuss topics such as health and fitness, personal finance management, and marketing – all led by your peers! This event will allow to you ask questions of our alumni experts on these important topics in small groups that allow for discussion and conversation.
