Elon experiences

Elon has always been known as a place where students "experience" learning, and this sometimes involves travel. This past Winter Term, 18 School of Communications faculty and staff members traveled with students in Study Abroad courses (Austria, France, Germany, Australia, England and Barbados), M.A. in Interactive Media fly-ins (Cuba, Portugal and Costa Rica), and Study USA courses (Hawai'i, Florida and the Sundance Film Festival in Utah). When you’re ready to travel, please keep Elon, N.C., as an ideal destination. We so enjoy seeing alumni, and if you give your former professors a heads-up, they may ask you to be a guest speaker in a class.
