Residence Life



The Communications Floor, located on the first floor of Sloan, connects communications students, including those majoring or intending to major in communications. Students have an opportunity to get to know communications faculty on a more personal level, learn from others on the floor who share common academic and extracurricular interests, participate in field trips to media organizations, and host speakers on communication-related topics. Students on this floor represent the various concentrations and majors in the School of Communications including journalism, broadcast and new media, corporate communications and cinema. Sloan is convenient to McEwen, and the newly contructed Schar Hall, where most communications, student media, and editing suites are housed. Students benefit from the proximity to Turner Theatre, a brand new state of the art film venue, and the amenities of the town of Elon's shops, cafe's and restaurants. 


  • Trips to regional media centers, including to major cities within 6 hours of drive time
  • Visits to communication sites (TV, newspapers, production studios, etc.)
  • Involvement in planning of events for the floor
  • Involvement in the communication student organizations
