Students danced through the night in Alumni Gym as part of Elonthon, a 24-hour dance marathon held annually to raise money for children's cancer research.Starting at 6 p.m. Friday evening, students gathered in Alumni to begin the overnight festivities. Each participant campaigned for donations in the weeks leading up to the event, signing up for a 6-, 12-, or 24-hour dance shift. The money raised through donations will be donated to Duke Children's Hospital in Durham, a nearby member of the Children's Miracle Network, a non-profit organization comprised of 170 hospitals nationwide.As the hours rolled on through the night, students partook in a variety of events to boost morale and energy. Zumba, yoga, a silent disco, ping pong, and a rave hour all kept the party going in the early hours of Saturday morning. Elon's dance marathon was first held in 2003. Last year's event raised over $180,000.

Some costumes may not even seem inappropriate at first, but when looked at critically, clearly have racist, homophobic, transphobic or sexist implications.
Last semester my friend Morgan Bodenarain, executive president of SGA, invited me to the N-Word Forum, an event organized by the Black Student Union. Before she asked me to go, I had seen posters promoting the event around campus and, to be honest, I had no interest in attending. But Bodenarain insisted I attend with her. The second we walked into the room, I noticed that I was in the minority.
