The start of a new year is a perfect time for a hopeful message. Head women's basketball coach Charlotte Smith was prompted by a negative experience to write a song of healing and love. She teamed up with #Elon alumna Kennedy Caughell '12 and music faculty member Todd Coleman to produce a powerful piece. We hope you'll share it with others.

Talk about putting learning into action ... to help others learn. Two #Elon Teaching Fellows who studied in Costa Rica last spring have published a book that will help prepare others for the same sort of global study experience! The book is available for purchase from Amazon.com and all proceeds benefit Elon University scholarships for studying abroad. See more (and perhaps find the perfect holiday gift!) at the E-net post below.

We are once again grateful for the generosity and planned giving of Elon alumni and friends. Gifts totaling more than $1.3 million from two estates will provide new scholarship support for students at #Elon. The gifts were received in recent weeks from the estate of Margaret "Peggy" Leister, a 1967 Elon alumna from Towson, Md., and from the estate of Muir William Grant and his wife, Lorraine Fogleman Grant, of Burlington, N.C.

The Leister endowment will provide scholarship aid for students with disabilities, while the Fogleman Grant endowment will support students pursuing studies in music. Read more about their impact at the E-net post below!

One of #Elon 's most-cherished traditions - the Festival of Holiday Lights - ushered in the winter season on Monday night. Hundreds of members of the Elon community gathered in Scott Plaza and Young Commons to share in songs, lights and holiday cheer. Enjoy this look at Elon dressed up for the holiday season! #ElonLuminary

Almost a thousand Thanksgiving meals will be served to community members in need after employees from Elon Dining Services and other #Elon Auxiliary Services departments teamed up to prepare and package food that will be delivered to Allied Churches of Alamance County. What a wonderful way to spread hope and thankfulness!

Wow! What an exceptional look from The (Burlington, N.C.) Times-News at what fuels #Elon cross country senior Luis Vargas. “Easily, my school and my team and my family,” he says. “Without them, I would not be in the position I am now. I owe them just as much credit as I would give myself. They are as big a part of me as anything. I really lay it out there for them.”

Luis is the only NCAA Division I runner who can claim an undefeated season. He'll compete for a national championship this Saturday. Read more of this tremendous profile in the link below and join us in cheering on Luis!
