students playing family feud

Campus Technologies held their 5th annual Connected @Elon event on Monday, August 27th during New Student Orientation. Created to help new students learn about the technology available to them on campus, Campus Technologies staff staged a game of Family Feud, complete with commercials featuring technology services.

Scott Hildebrand (Assistant Director of Teaching and Learning Technologies), Mariah Czap (a senior from Cary, NC), and Sean Walmer (a junior from Hillsboro, NC) engaged first-year student contestants with questions about technology. The students were asked to name the top 5 things they should not do on Facebook, the apps available to them through their Google Apps for Education account, and the ways they can seek technology help.

Students walked away from the show with an understanding of the ways they can stay “Connected @ Elon.” To learn more about ways you can stay “Connected @Elon,” visit our “New to Elon” section on the Technology website.
