Hosted each spring, Elon's "Destination ..." events provide current students a peek into life after college in several major cities from the perspective of Elon's young alumni. Graduates contribute to a panel discussion about the city they live in and answer questions from current students.

If you're interested in participating in an upcoming "Destination..." event, please contact the alumni engagement office.
