Summer Welcome Events

Summer Welcome Events serve as an opportunity for incoming students and parents to meet and connect with one another prior to arriving on campus for Move-In Weekend. Events are hosted by Elon families across the nation and run from mid-July through mid-August.

The Office of Parent Engagement is excited for the return of in-person Summer Welcome Events. We continue to value the health and safety for our Elon families and that’s why we encourage Summer Welcome Event guests to have received the COVID-19 vaccine.

Those who are not vaccinated are required to wear masks indoors. In accordance with new guidance from the CDC, in areas of substantial and high transmission, we recommend that all people wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status.
