What to Expect

The New Student Orientation and Residence Life staffs work together to provide all the information that you will need.  As a part of your check-in, you will receive a schedule of the events for the first few days and information on becoming part of the Elon community.

Rest assured, we will not leave you floundering! Every member of our team will be able to answer your questions and/or direct you to someone who can address any concerns you may have.  For example, you'll meet Orientation Leaders, current students who will guide you through important information, answer questions and help get you acclimated to Elon.  You will have the opportunity to break into small orientation groups led by an Orientation leader to get to know one another and the campus.

Convocation
The Elon University New Student Convocation is your first official function as a college student.  At Convocation, students, parents and faculty are introduced to each other as a community.  Because this is such an important event in your college career, appropriate dress is required.  Neat sport clothes (sundresses, slacks and button-down shirts) will do just fine.

The New Student Orientation office is here to get all of your questions answered, so please call us at the Orientation Office (336) 278-7777 or e-mail us at compass@elon.edu.
