Elon Hillel Family Fall: Live, Love, Laugh, Light
We are very proud to announce Elon Hillel Family Fall: Live, Love, Laugh, Light – a series of interactive and enlightening zoom events designed to engage students and bring together families at this time when connection and community matter more than ever.
Family Weekend is traditionally a time for families to explore campus alongside their students, connect with faculty, staff and other Elon families and get an insider view of the life on campus. Instead of coming to campus, we are bringing the Elon Hillel experience to you, with a rich and engaging series of fun virtual events that celebrate our joyful and welcoming Jewish community. All events are presented in partnership with the Office of Parent Engagement, and are a part of our Elon University Family Fall. These events are also open and free to students from other campuses joining us through Hillel@Home, and your friends, family, and colleagues.
Your generous support of these events provides safe and innovative programming for our students.
