Celebrate Elon’s heritage

Published by

Celebrate Elon’s heritage at Homecoming this weekend (Oct. 22-24) and join alumni, faculty, staff, current students, and other friends of Elon University in all the festivities planned!

In 1895, 11 of Elon College’s first graduates united to establish the Elon College Alumni Association, which strove to keep “the memory of college days among the alumni, and to keep their support united for the good of the college.” To meet those goals, the association sponsored reunions to bring graduates back to campus. One such reunion, an annual October/November event called “Homecoming Days,” is mentioned in Elon communications dating to the early 20th century. Though the specifics of the celebration have changed considerably over the past 100 years, the spirit remains the same, bringing to the forefront the indelible link between Elon’s past and present.
