CELEBRATE! 2015 will be held April 27 - May 2, 2015. Please see the links to the left to find the schedule of events. We will also be adding links below of coverage of the many CELEBRATE! events.
The Spring Undergraduate Research Forum (SURF) has been an Elon tradition since 1993. The annual Awards Day Ceremony sponsored by Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) has been a spring tradition recognizing exemplary achievements in academics and service since 1979. Since 2006, CELEBRATE! has brought together SURF, ODK and other events in a weeklong celebration.
Each year, hundreds of Elon University students are involved in activities during CELEBRATE! The week includes seminars, presentations, art exhibitions, plays, student showcases, dance and music performances, and much, much more. CELEBRATE! 2014 brings together the stimulation of academic inquiry and scholarly pursuit with the exhilaration of creative expression.
Beginning in 2008, an event honoring faculty scholarship joined the CELEBRATE! schedule of events. During this event, which occurs on the morning of SURF Day, faculty members from academic departments across campus will join with students to engage you with poster presentations related to their scholarly work. Scholarship from all across the University will be showcased during this session. This event is from 9 – 10 a.m. on Tuesday morning. Student SURF presentations will also take place in McKinnon; students will be available to discuss their posters starting at 9 a.m.
Again we are excited to Celebrate the Arts & Sciences at our festival on May 2nd! Join us from 9:30 – 3pm for a fun-filled, educational family and community event. We encourage everyone to join the festivities on Lakeside Amphitheater and the patio for the Center for the Arts. We will begin the day with a 5k Run/Walk for H.O.P.E. This wonderful non-profit organization was started by Elon students who wanted to find a way to do more to support food pantries in Alamance County. They have partnered with local restaurants and found an innovative way to build a constant stream of funding to support these organizations. We will host the 5k for H.O.P.E. and raise money to support the great work they do! The race will kick off on Young Commons at 9:30am. To register for the race, please visit www.SPORToften.com
Mark your calendars, support the work of your peers and colleagues, learn, engage, enjoy...celebrate!
