Welcome to the Elon Family!

Spring semester at Elon University is always an exciting time on campus! From signature events such as Spring Convocation to campus traditions such as Elon Day, it seems that there is always something special happening.

Elon presents a broad offering of academic and special programs every semester. The cultural calendar provides a month-by-month overview of musical and theatrical performances, guest and faculty lectures, religious and ethnic observances, recitals, art exhibitions, special entertainment and more. Take a peek at what is on the cultural calendar for the spring semester!

On March 5, the worldwide Elon community came together for the sixth annual Elon Day. Our community came together and contributed 6,376 gifts and $2,385,629 to support students, scholarships, athletics and faculty and staff. We held 43 events with 3,952 attendees on campus and around the world, and secured six new endowed student scholarships. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Elon is preparing to hold its 129th Commencement ceremonies on Friday, May 24. The day will begin with an outdoor ceremony on Scott Plaza, which will include a processional of students, the student speaker, a Commencement address and the president’s charge to graduates. Following the outdoor ceremony will be two separate diploma-awarding ceremonies for the Class of 2019, both held in Schar Center. To learn more about the Commencement ceremonies, please visit the Commencement website.
