This week I’ve been working on an article about religion and diversity on our campus. Something I was interested in learning about while exploring this topic is what things stand in the way of creating an entirely accepting and diverse environment on a college campus. It surprised me that both Chaplain Jan Fuller and Lynn Huber, associate professor of religious studies, had the same answer to this question.
While losing a loved one is never easy, it can present a particular set of challenges to college students who must learn to cope with their grief while facing social and academic pressures.
For this week’s article I am writing about HEART, a little known, but in my opinion very important organization.
Incoming students have yet to see the university from which they will graduate.
The Office of Sustainability's series of Earth Week events made practicing an eco-friendly lifestyle accessible by narrowing the focus of the global movement to Elon students specifically.
For one night only, Belk Pavilion was transformed into a game show set for an environmental-themed trivia event. Students from across campus gathered to participate in Environmental Jeopardy, a trivia game with the goal of raising awareness about environmental issues.
Before attending Environmental Jeopardy in Belk Pavilion last night, I had no idea where on campus the community garden was located. I’d never heard of Elon’s ride-sharing initiative, Zimrides, and I couldn’t name the dining locations that were designated for composting. After attending this event, I feel like I’ve gained so much more of an understanding about the ways that environmental issues are being addressed at my school.
It’s difficult to ignore the construction going on around campus. I walk past the future site of the Numen Lumen Multi-Faith Center twice a week on my way to class. I drive past the Station at Mill Point whenever I leave my apartment. And where my freshman dorm once stood, there is now the steel bones of what will become the Global Residential Neighborhood.
Members of SPECTRUM, Elon University’s queer-straight alliance, gathered to discuss the commonalities that bind individuals within their community together at this year’s Southeast Regional Unity Conference.
The Elon University School of Law has a goal for its students that extends beyond finding success in the legal field. The professors and administrators also hope to prepare students to act as leaders in their respective communities after graduation.
Have you ever tried to have a conversation about a person you know without using gender pronouns? It’s harder than you might think. Making a call home to update your parents on interactions with your roommates, friends and professors could prove especially challenging if the words “he” and “she” were off-limits.
The world’s largest ball of paint, baby clowns and airplane passenger safety cards all appear in Ander Monson’s nonfiction works.
When I wrote last week’s blog, I was in the beginning stages of writing my article on Impact Day. I hadn’t yet had the opportunity to speak with Brittany Walker, the Elon senior responsible for organizing the event. My interview with Brittany was a really great experience, and it left me truly impressed with her drive to give back to the community.
Members of many Elon organizations gathered in Harden Clubhouse 9 a.m. Saturday, March 3 to benefit a cause they said they felt was well worth waking up early for.
This week I’m writing about Impact Day, an event taking place on Saturday devoted to getting organizations and individuals involved in community service. Covering this story has gotten me thinking about my own Elon community service experiences, which have been more minimal than I would like.
Elon senior Lauren Stranahan hopes to make an impact this spring at the annual Posters on the Hill event in Washington, D.C., where she will express to Congress the importance of funding undergraduate research.
Today I made my first trip to McMichael since my freshman year. As a creative writing major, I find reasons to visit the science building are few and far between. But today I found myself headed there for an interview with Dr. Niedziela, to talk about the research that scored her academic advisee, Lauren Stranahan, an invite to the prestigious Posters on the Hill event in Washington D.C.
This year, the French Club will celebrate Mardi Gras with festivities for a cause close to its members’ hearts.
This week I was originally assigned a story on the Tournees Festival, a series of French films being shown in McEwen this month. However, when I contacted the faculty advisor to the French Club, the organization responsible for the Festival, I was led to a whole new story idea.
Tony Campolo, founder of the Evangelical Association for the Promotion of Education, discussed accomplishing social change with the Elon community Wednesday night in McCrary Theater.
