We are going back into the blog vault to pull a previous post about on-campus events! Wanting to visit campus but wondering which experience will best fit what you’re looking for? We have broken down (again) each of our events and what you can expect to be covered.
Traditional Campus Visit (Information Session & Tour)
When: Monday-Friday (morning and afternoon times available), most Saturdays (9am, 10am, 11am)
Who: All are welcome!
What: A 30 minute information session with an admission counselor, followed by a student-led tour of the main portions of campus. Families also have the option of taking a self-guided driving tour afterwards to see other parts of campus not included in the campus visit. Families unable to register for a tour are welcome to take a self-guided walking tour of campus and utilize our admissions counselor on duty to answer any questions they may have. If participating in this visit option, please plan your visit to Elon to last 2 hours. Seniors (only) also have the option of sitting in on a class. (Note: class visits must be arranged at least 2 weeks prior to coming to campus.)
How: Families are urged to register for their campus visit prior to coming to campus. March and April are our busiest months and campus visits will almost certainly fill up. You can schedule a campus visit here: http://www.elon.edu/e-web/admissions/visit.xhtml
Phoenix Fridays and Maroon Mondays (NEW)
When: February 20, April 13, and April 17
Who: Admitted students
What: If you’ve been admitted to Elon, we invite you to spend a day on campus, and see what it’s like to be an Elon student. Students will attend a class, have lunch with a current Elon student in one of our dining halls, and take a campus or residence hall tour. Students and families can expect to learn more about residence life, academic programs, as well as student life on campus. Phoenix Fridays are capped in order to allow for a personal experience with current Elon students, faculty and staff so please sign up in advance.
How: Students can register for Phoenix Fridays via their Application status page.
