Numen Lumen: A Thursday Inspiration

Numen Lumen Theme 2020-21: Bridging to Hope

Hear members of our Elon community share pieces of their stories, enjoy live music and artistic expression, and share in coffee and refreshments.

Numen Lumen is an Elon moment to take a break, breathe, relax, and enjoy the community around us.

Numen Lumen is currently online with new videos posted every Thursday on the Truitt Center Blog.
