Incoming students visit campus for Rising Phoenix Weekend

You might have passed a new classmate any time between Friday and Saturday, March 14 and 15. Elon's incoming students got their first taste of college life this past weekend at "Rising Phoenix Weekend," formerly known as Spring Orientation. The Class of 2018 came from all over the country with relatives and friends to tour the campus and prepare for their college careers. Assistant Director of Admissions, Scott Christopherson, organized the event and gave 7-minute introduction sessions before every tour. "This gives the incoming students a chance to see what it would be like to be a student on campus," Christopherson said. Students were given tours of the campus and were able to sit attend informational sessions about Elon Experiences and academics. More incoming students from the Class of 2018 will visit campus later in April for an additional Rising Phoenix Weekend event.
