In an effort to promote continued community building during a time of social distancing, Elon will offer a variety of virtual events and opportunities for students, faculty and staff to stay connected.
Each virtual community building event is meant to create weekly opportunities for Elon students, faculty and staff to stay connected while away from campus. These opportunities will allow the community to continue to enjoy scheduled events and continue campus traditions, connecting the community back to campus in ways that are not labor-intensive and include wellness, music, spirituality, levity, ideas and more.
