Many students, faculty and staff members who knew or worked with her during her time here at Elon showed excitement for her return.

This morning, the Elon University Board of Trustees announced that Connie Book will be stepping into the shoes of Leo Lambert March 1, 2018 as Elon's ninth president. But students are most excited about the fact that Book will be the university's first female president in its 128-year history.
