Homecoming 2014

Planning a trip is a lot of fun, and here is a trip you can start planning: Elon Homecoming. See the new buildings. Chat with the old professors. Enjoy seeing former classmates. Homecoming events will begin on Friday, Oct. 17, with a lunch hosted by the communications faculty and the Communications Alumni Network. That afternoon, alumni will share career insights with current students. Class reunion brunches and tailgating will be on Saturday, Oct. 18, preceding the football game. Hope you can plan a return to Elon in the fall!
