Live the Maroon Life by wearing your Elon gear every Monday. Participate and you could win a prize! On randomly selected Mondays Student Alumni Council members will be in the Moseley Student Center handing out prizes to students on campus who are wearing Elon apparel. Student organization shirts, maroon and gold socks, an Elon hoodie or hat, facepaint - it doesn't matter what you wear, as long as it shows your Elon spirit!

Are you thinking about moving to a new city for a post-graduation job or a summer internship? Each spring, the Elon Alumni Association collaborates with young alumni living and working in several major cities to provide insights about their "hometowns." Receive tips about where to look for work, what area of town to live in, entertainment and night life, and cost of living. This also is a great opportunity to develop relationships with alumni and fellow students to grow your professional network.
Your tuition and fees only cover about 81 percent of your Elon education. Elon...Pass It On! marks the day of the academic year when a student's education is no longer paid by tuition and fees but rather gifts from alumni, parents, friends, grandparents, corporations and foundations.
Compete in the block party cornhole tournament, enjoy hot dogs and other ballpark refreshments and cheer on the Phoenix baseball team! Hosted by the Student Alumni Council, this event takes place each spring and offers a great chance to get out and enjoy beautiful spring weather while spending time with friends and showing your Elon pride.
We all know how to send an email, Tweet a message, post to a Facebook wall, text a friend or connect on LinkedIn, but have we forgotten how to talk to one another face-to-face? This student-organized event gives you the opportunity to hone your in-person networking skills while developing valuable connections. Speak with fellow students who have completed an internship, landed a job or been accepted to a graduate program in an area you're interested in and learn about how they did it.
If your'e doing a summer internship, you won't want to miss this event. Enjoy refreshments and pick up your "Internship Survival Kit" courtesy of the Student Alumni Council.
