Elon University has over 250 unique clubs for students to join. Each fall and spring, students run a club fair where they line central campus with tables to describe their clubs and encourage new members to sign up. Here are just 5 of the cool clubs that Elon has to offer!
Elonthon is Elon’s annual 24-hour dance marathon. All proceeds benefit the Children’s Miracle Network but more specifically the kids of Duke Children’s Hospital. Elon students form committees to put on this amazing event and raised $280,396.68 just last year. Each year, miracle children from the hospital get to come and participate in the event alongside all of the students. It is very fun, rewarding, and full of great activities to make the 24-hours fly by! Also, it’s not to late to sign up to participate in this year’s event happening in April!
2. Cooking Club
Do you love to eat? If you answered yes, then Elon’s cooking club is definitely for you. Elon’s cooking club is good for anyone because it does not require a huge time commitment. There are events scattered throughout the semester, and students can learn about these events by joining the email list. Example events include guacamole making and cookie baking. Eating is often a great stress relief so next time you need a homework break, go to a cooking club event!
3. Elon Volunteers
Elon Volunteers is a great way to get involved in Alamance County initiatives and learn more about the local community. Elon Volunteers has so many opportunities at different organizations, so it is also a great way to fulfill service hour requirements. You could volunteer at the local animal shelter or even help elementary school kids with vocabulary words and after-school tutoring. Elon Volunteers is a very rewarding experience so it is definitely recommended that you get involved!
4. Elon Outdoors
