Message From the President

The New York City Alumni Chapter aims to keep alumni, parents, current students, faculty and staff connected through the Elon Network  and attending events throughout the year. As you may notice, there have made some changes to our Board and the Office of Alumni Engagement since last year, they've grown! Our Alumni Chapter has more Board members and will continue to create more opportunities for alumni to get more involved and to provide helpful resources to alumni in the area.

I encourage your participation, your feedback and your support in what will be the best year yet! We hope to see you and your friends and/or family at the next event, because that's where we bELONg."
