Global and Historic residents and visitors all gather for dinner and compete as teams for prizes!
On Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2019, Global and Historic Neighborhoods hosted their first collaborative dinner of the year. As more than 60 students entered Upstairs Lakeside, they were greeted and welcomed with pub-inspired food including hot wings, chips and salsa, pretzels and cheese, chicken nuggets, and rainbow cupcakes to begin the night.
Hosting the event, Martin Beckelhymer ‘22, introduced himself and the trivia procedures. The students, faculty and staff in attendance divided themselves into teams and quickly began answering the trivia questions via Kahoot. The four categories covered Halloween, Elon and Elon History, Pop Culture, and Name that Flag. Each member of the winning team won a $20 Visa gift card.
Halfway through the night, a raffle took place where Barnes & Noble Elon Gear was given away. Three winners went home with a pennant, Elon cup or an Elon T-shirt.
The Global Neighborhood’s next two events will be their neighborhood dinner on Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019 at 5:45 p.m. discussing “Native North Carolina: A (G)local conversation about the Nations that surround us” and a hosted film from their film series “Homeland (Ne quelque Parte),” a French film tackling topics on National identity , immigration, integration and language and culture. This film will be shown on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019 at 7 p.m.
