Celebration time

First came ideas to meet the needs of a growing School of Communications. Then came architects, 43 major gifts, the arrival of construction crews, and finally the students themselves. And now we celebrate. The dedication of our new and renovated school facilities will take place at 3:30 p.m. Friday, March 31, in the Snow Family Grand Atrium that connects a state-of-the-art McEwen with the new Schar Hall. You are invited to this special event. If March 31 doesn’t work for you, then come whenever you can. You will find former teachers and current students enthusiastic to welcome you back to campus and walk you through the familiar spaces in McEwen and the new ones elsewhere. You may leave Elon, but Elon will never leave you.
