Elon Alumni Association

Elon College, the College of Arts & Sciences
Distinguished Alumni Award

Elon College, the College of Arts & Sciences, each year honors alumni who have made significant contributions to their profession and brought honor to the School and to Elon. A recipient is selected to represent each of the three branches of the college: Arts & Humanities; Social Sciences; and Math, Computing & Natural Sciences. Recipients are selected by the faculty and invited to campus for a ceremony in their honor and to share their wisdom with current Elon students.
