This past Tuesday I was in Atlanta, GA for a Summer Welcome Event (one of many Elon Summer Welcome Events) hosted by the Miller family. Approximately 20 incoming freshman and their families were in attendance. Students were able to meet and mingle with other students from all over the metropolitan area.
It was nice to be able to officially welcome students to Elon before Move-In Weekend. I really enjoyed being able to talk, put a face with a name and catch up with students who have been admitted to Elon as early as December 2008.
As the summer quickly comes to an end, I look forward to the next academic year where I can begin visiting high schools, attending college fairs, building relationships with students and their families, application reading and planning events for prospective students. However, until I head out on the road for Fall travel, I will anxiously wait until Move-In Weekend! The countdown begins!
