Dear Elon Parents,
On behalf of the Parents Council, we would like to welcome the parents of the Class of 2018 and new transfer students to Elon! You have become members of a very special family. Elon is a unique place where students, faculty and staff work together to further students’ education, personal growth and success.
Parents also play a key role in this special learning community and, likewise, in Elon’s overall growth and transformation. Recognizing this importance, the Elon University Parents Council represents parents to the university administration and provides parents with a means to share observations, suggestions or concerns about university programs and student life. Please feel free to contact us or any member of the Council through the Office of Parent Engagement at 336.278.7470 for assistance.
We also encourage parents to stay connected with the university. Elon asks alumni to be Partners, Advocates and Investors and parents can also play a role in this. We hope you’ll partner by following Elon on social media and reading This Week @ Elon to stay informed about the great things happening on campus. You can advocate by telling others about Elon or referring potential students.
Finally, please consider investing in the future of the university and the students by supporting the Parents & Grandparents Fund, or another designation of importance to you or your student in any amount. Your annual gift to Elon provides a very important source of funding to the university for improving and maintaining the high quality programs and facilities enjoyed by our students.
We wish you and your students a most successful year at Elon!
