Summer is here! We had a wonderful Commencement under the oaks in May with our graduates of the class of 2015 and graduate programs. As we welcomed the class of 2015 to the alumni ranks, we began preparing to welcome the class of 2019 to campus in August.

New families, keep an eye on our Summer Welcome Event page. Here you'll find the schedule of events for our new families that are hosted by current families from all over the country. If you live near one of these events, you’ll be receiving an invitation in the mail soon. Summer Welcome Events are a great way to get to know other Elon families in your area. There will be current students and parents on hand to answer any questions you might have about starting college, coming to Elon, and more.

Want to stay in the know during your student’s first year at Elon? Bookmark the New Parents section of our website for information about Elon happenings, serives and programs offered, details about new student orientation, and other information. Additionally, please complete the New Family Information Form to help us get to know you better! 

I invite you to like our recently launched Elon Parents Facebook page! We hope that this platform will provide helpful information about being a college parent, as well as to provide some insight into the daily Elon experience.

We look forward to seeing all our Elon families on campus in August! 

Best regards,
Jozi Snowberger '07
Director of Parent Engagement
