\ision tor the future began to take shape, guided by 
the Elon (loniniitment strategic plan. We witnessed 
the beginning of a transformation of Elon's residential 
experience with construction of three new residence 
halls that form a new quad adjacent to the Ernest 
A. Kour\ Sr. Business Center. In line with our 
sustainabilit\ master plan, these new buildings 
surrttund Ek)n's first geothermal system that will 
provide en\ironmentally friendly heating and cooling. 
This w'as also a year for planning the next phases of 
new campus housing, including llie Station at Mill 
Point and the (ilobal Residential Neighborhood, 
which will replace Story Center and Harper Center in 
the years ahead. 

Renovations in .-Xlumni G\ m brought new spirit 
and excitement for basketball and \olleyball fans 
this year, and the opening of .Alumni Field House at 
Rhodes Stadium provided a first-class home for our 
NC.A.A Division 1 Phoenix athletics. 

In celebrating our past, we marked the 2.5th 
anniversaiy of the establishment of the Martha 
and Spencer Love School of Business, and with 
our eyes on future generations, we welcomed the 
establishment of the Elon University Forest, 56 acres 
that will forever be preserved in its natural state. 
.Another historic milestone was the creation of a 
School of Health Sciences, which will include a new 
physician assistant studies master's program that 
enrolls its first class in 2013. 

Through the Kemodle Center for Service 
Learning and Community Engagement, we launched 
Campus Kitchen at Elon University to feed the hungry 
of Alamance County; Students raised money to 
support relief efforts in Japan following a massive 



get the facts: 



earthc|uake. tsunami and subsetiueiit nuclear 
disaster. Locally, the university rallied to help North 
Carolinians affected by destructix'c springtime 
tornadoes. 

Elon welcomed to campus man\ j'jrominent 
scholars, authors, journalists and public servants 
this year, including former Newsweek editor 
and Pulitzer Prize winner .Ion Meacham, former 
Pakistani President Pervez Mushari-af. former 
U.S. Representative J.C. Watts, former Republican 
National Committee chairman Michael Steele 
and religious scholar Reza .Asian. 'Iheir insights 
shed light on current e\ents that define our roles, 
responsibilities and opportunities as global citizens. 

Tlie annual Convocation for Honors perhaps 
best represented our university's engagement with the 
world. In a panel discussion moderated by NBC News 
anchor Brian Williams, five distinguished panelists 
explored the greatest challenges facing our nation, 
including partisan gridlock, economic uncertainty, 
a decline in science and technology' investment, 
religious friction and a weakened public education 
system. To summarize their conclusions, in so many 
words, there is no silver bullet to solve these vexing 
issues. Tliere is only you. 

When you open this Phi Psi Cli yearbook in 
the coming years. 1 hope you will examine the ways 
Elon has shaped your life. In what ways have you 
contributed to solving the challenges that confront 
our society'? How do Elon's values influence the 
contributions you make to your community? These 
are the questions you were challenged to answer 
during your time on campus, and 1 hope you will 
continue to ask them throughout your life of positive 
work and noble service.

l^ Ion students are professional multitaskers. We have a knack for taking maximum cretiils each semester, 
participating in clubs, on sexerai committees, \ olunteering, getting good grades, wiiile still managing our social li\ es. 
Our chaotic lives are somehow balancetl. It is because we put 100% into everything we do. This is seen by how much 
F.lon L ni\ersity has flourished o\ cr the past decade and that is all due to the students and the haixl work they do to

/er 100 members of the Orientation team kicked the highly anticipated move-in day into high gear. They got the 
move on bright and early at 6:30 a.m., and .started to move in the freshman class of 2014. Moms, dads, brothers, and 
sisters helped the new students begin the start of a new chapter in their life - college. 

Freshman Maggie Rousseau said, "I was wicked nervous to move in, but everyone made me feel so welcome, and by 
the end I was so e.xcited to get to know everyone better!" An upperclassman on the Orientation team greeted each new 
student and helped without question to move boxes upon boxes up flights of stairs. By the end of the day, everyone 
was exhausted but the feeling of accomplishment moving the newest Elon class in was rewarding for ever>'one.

VV n Friday, August 2 /th, the sun was shining and smiles were plentiful as hundreds of cars, boxes 
families and students started to flock to campus. Move-In Day 2010 was quite a success with the arrival 
of over 1, 300 new students. All hands were on deck as enthusiastic orientation staff members helped to

Orientation experience which included exciting nightly programming such as Catch the Fire in all the 
residential areas, an Elon Athletics Pep Rally and Extravaganza as well as a Community on the Commons 
event with live music. Students got to meet others in their Elon 101 groups as well as in their residence 
halls. The weekend also included special events like New Student Convocation and informational 
Orientation sessions. Students learned right away what it means to be an 'Elon student' and all of values of 
this remarkable institution. The exhilarating weekend ended with the start of an exciting new school year 
and a sense of bELONging for all!

Physiology Club, WSOE, and Twisted Measure are just a 
few out of hundreds on student organizations that were 
present at this years Organization Fair held outside of 
Mosley on a hot September day. 

Elon students came out to sign up for clubs to meet new 
friends, learn a new hobby, or see what their friends have 
been up too. Members of each organization set up tables 
to showcase what their organization was all about and to 
answer any questions and to encourage students to sign 
up for their club. 

Many clubs were giving away candy freeze pops, and 
information students could take with them about the 
club. There was upbeat music to keep the mood light, and 
everyone found something extra to fill up that one ounce 
of free time they had left. The hit this year was SUBs

othing IS better than sharing your college experience for one weekend with your parents. Families 
invade Elon during the first weekend of October to attend a football game, meet with their child's professors 
see how clean their child's room actually is, and restock the refrigerator. 

Parents love coming to Elon just as much as the students do! There was a golf tournament on Friday as well 
as a women's soccer game. On Saturday there were all sorts of activities for every member of the family 
semmars for the Grandparents and sibling activities for the youngsters. The annual Family Weekend Picnic 
was a great success as families ate by Lake Mary Nell before the football game. It was a gorgeous weekend 
for fanzines to reunite with their children.

.iving on campus can have many perks. Senior Sarah Schermerhorn and the 
captain of the Varsity Volleyball team has lived in her Oaks apartment since 
sophomore year. Why does she choose to stay on campus? "1 love the fact that 
it takes me two minutes to walk to class and it is close to the gym for practices." 
Her apartment has become literally a second home for her, and she says, "Our 
apartment is very homey, and we feel safe because campus security is right near 

by." 

Residence Life finds living accommodations for all 2,900 students that live on 
Elon's campus. There is an RA or HA on every floor for any campus housing. As 
tor the Oaks, Jasmine Nickerson, a junior HA, enjoys her job because she has a 
chance to bring the floor together and she hosts several events each semester 
where she opens her doors to the hall and people can hang out and meet their hal 
mates. "1 love living where 1 live and I want others to love it to!"

\— Ion started a new tradition this year for 
Homecoming by liaving a concert to celebrate the 
weekend and all of the alumni coming back to where 
they bELONg. 

Sam Adams, a 22-year-old rapper who calls himself 
"Boston's Boy" jet-setted down to Burlington to 
get the Homecoming weekend started. Nearly 
3,000 students and alumni came to listen to Adams 
sing his hit single, an Asher Roth spin off, "1 Hate 
College." Before arriving to Elon, Sam Adams was 
clearly mentally preparing himself for the arrival on 
a college campus by utilizing Twitter to ask about 
Elon's students. 

A college student himself and a soccer stud, Adams 
had all of Elon jamming to his music. It was a great 
way to start the weekend off. Adams performed 
several songs from of his new album, "Boston's Boy," 
including "Coast to Coast," "Driving me Crazy" and 
"Tab's Open."

r\ s an esteemed school, Elon University 
hosted many prestigious speakers throughout 
the past school year 

During the fall semester, students were fortunate 
enough to hear speeches by ambassadors 
such as Dr Reza Asian and Pervez Musharraf, 
international leaders in the realms of religion 
and on politics in the Middle East, respectively 

The year 2011 brought more amazing speakers 
to campus. One event in particular was the 
Spring Convocation of Honors panel. Brian 
Williams is the NBC Nightly News anchor, and 
monitored the discussion, "We can be better: 
Courageous voices confront our greatest 
challenges." The panel consisted of David 
Gergen, David Walker, Shirley Ann Jackson, 
Eboo Patel, and David Levin. While students 
approach a world with many crises, David 
Gergen, political analyst for CNN and advisor 
to four U.S. presidents said, "My hope is that 
you all as students won't buy into that, that you 
won't accept it as an answer The call to your 
generation is whether you can rally for this 
country, revive it and rebuild it based on the 
values you have learned from Elon." 

Students were extremely fortunate to hear these 
world voices throughout the year, and it proves 
Elon's commitment to engaging students on a 
global level.

I he sun was out, old friends were back in town and sounds of football were ringing; some days just don't get any ^ 
better than that. Elon football was matched against the Wofford Terriers for the Saturday game. The Elon football 
team fought hard to erase a 21-0 second-half deficit with three touchdown passes to .Scott Riddle and an unbreakabl 
defense. 

The crowd, proudly sporting their maroon and gold (and sundresses) cheered loudly for the lively half-time show 
featuring the Eire of the Carolinas. Also during half-time was the unveiling of the Homecoming Queen and King This! 
year's winners were Kelli Accardi from Alpha Omicron Pi and Ian Maxwell from Isabella Cannon Leadership Proarart 
Congratulations! ^ 

Back in the second half, the Terriers spoiled Elon's good fortune with a 41- yard touch down pass with onlv nine 
■conds to play. The Phoenix lost 28-21. " ;' 

Regardless of the outcome, Elon always looks forward to having alumni back who have all made such an impact on

U one of the most beloved traditions by Elon students, this year's Holiday Luminaries celebration did not 
disappoint. At 6:30 pm on Dec. 2, Elon's campus was lit up with hundreds of luminaries laid along the walkways 
and decorative lights on the trees. Carolers sang Christmas tunes on the steps of Alamance and a Menorah was lit 
in celebration of the second night of Hanukkah. Hot chocolate 
and hot cider was served as students, faculty staff, and the 
community braved the cold weather to commend the holiday 
season. The ceremony was opened by Chaplain Phil Smith, who 
encouraged everyone to enjoy the festivities. Although the usual 
train did not make an appearance at this year's celebration, Santa 
and Mrs. Claus spread holiday cheer and were happy to take 
pictures with children and students. Junior, Christie Quinn said 
the luminaries are one of her favorite nights at Elon. "Luminaries 

are like my birthday but better," said Quinn. "It is impossible to be unhappy when you're surrounded by such 
cheerful holiday songs, hot chocolate and cider, and a thousand twinkling little lights. Luminaries are a great time 
for Elon to come together and take time out of their busy schedules to just be eat, drink and be merry"

or Elon students, being fit and healthy is a big part of life. And Campus Recreation is the place to go for an 
amazing range of options on how to stay in shape. From the fitness center, to group exercise classes, to hiking 
trips with Elon Outdoors, Campus Rec has something for everyone. 

This year, Campus Rec held annual campus-wide events such as the Turkey Trot in the fall and the Bench Press 
Competition in the spring. The Turkey Trot is a 5k race that occurs just before Thanksgiving break. The race is 
open to all students, faculty, and staff, and Campus Rec even offers a training program for beginners. Campus 
Rec also offered other voluntary programs throughout the year such as Sportsfest, and Swim to Florida, where 
students can try to swim the equivalent number of miles it would take to get to Florida. 

Sophomore Alyssa Dilly works in the fitness department and said she loves her job because of the great 
relationships she has made. "It's fun! I get to walk around and talk to people, making sure they are using the 
equipment safely," said Dilly. "1 also love the staff. Everyone's so nice and all the departments get along well 
which creates a great workplace unity."

ne of the many great things about Elon is the meaningful traditions of the 
University. From College Coffee, where students and professors come together 
over breakfast, to the enchanting Holiday Luminaries, Elon traditions help to 
make the college experience even more memorable. 

A great Elon tradition is College Chapel, which is held in Whitley Auditorium 
every Thursday This year, faculty, staff, and student speakers shared events in 
their life that helped shape who they are today Another fun tradition always 
occurs around the holidays. The Holiday Luminaries is one of students' favorite 
nights on campus, and the community is welcome as well. Luminaries are laid 
along the walkways and the campus foliage is decorated with lights. A holiday 
celebration accompanies the lighting, including a visit from Santa Claus, and a 
lighting of the menorah. Along with the luminaries. President Lambert annually 
invites the entire student body for a holiday celebration at his house, where 
they can enjoy food and get their picture taken with him. 

Other traditions include the Turning 21 Dinner for those students who 
recently had their twenty-first birthday, and New Student Convocation and 
graduation under the oaks behind West dorm. It is these annual gatherings that 
help give Elon personality and engage students in creating their own college 
memories.

his year, Elon's annual charity dance marathon, Elonthon, was another great success. The 
event is an 24-hour dance marathon held each year to help raise money and awareness for Duke 
Children's Hospital. Over 1,200 students registered to dance for one six-hour shift, or all 24 hours, 
to support children with life-threatening and terminal diseases, some of whom were present at the 
marathon. 

Elonthon's theme for this year was "For the kids: Impossible is nothing," based off of an Adidas 
campaign. Director of Elonthon, senior Alex Lawrence, said the kids, families, and students can 
really relate to the theme and its positive message of striving to become a champion. To raise 
awareness for the event, the Elonthon executive committee held events throughout the year such 
as profit shares, car washes, bake sales, and participated in the RadioThon at Duke. 

"The most rewarding part of Elonthon is the relationships 1 have formed with the families over the 
past few years," said Lawrence. "It is amazing to see what the awareness means to these families, 
and how much we are making a difference in their lives. These kids are such heroes to me for what 
they have been through."

s a student at Elon University, 1 often find myself trying to appreciate 
all that is around me. With so much academic success as well as 
extracurricular achievement, it is quite easy to be proud of such an 
amazing institution. Within this overachieving community people tend 
to look for their niche, their place. My place is in the Greek community 
As a proud member of the Panhellenic Counsel at Elon University I am 
honored to have worked with so many talented women and created 
strong friendships outside of my organization. It is a privilege to be part 
of a collaborative effort with people that share the common bond of 
sisterhood. 

To describe the best part of my involvement in Panhellenic at Elon 
University would be an impossible task. I believe that all the women 
on the Panhellenic Counsel would agree with me that they have gained 
a sense of responsibility dedication and hard work through service 
opportunities, social events and educational programs. Panhellenic 
empowers and engages Greek women at Elon University to stay active 
and involved. 

Aside from the opportunity to meet so many people, the experiences 
we have shared are preparing us to be successful leaders outside of the 
college community. 

The Elon University Panhellenic Council governs the female fraternities 
and sororities that are members of the National Panhellenic Conference 
(NPC). It promotes cooperation and cohesiveness within the Greek 
community oversees formal recruitment for its member groups and 
sponsors service opportunities, social events and educational programs 
throughout thfe year.

he Interfraternity Council of Elon University stands as the governing body 
for the male fraternities that are members of the North American Interfraternity 
Conference. Our council believes in true fraternity values of social and moral 
responsibility coupled with loyalty to principles of higher education and 
stewardship to the surrounding Elon community Elon's IPC is currently revisiting 
its constitution to make way for even more positive growth and its vision for 
upcoming years includes establishing a more unified Greek community 

This year, we have successfully brought a new fraternity 
to campus, contributed over 6000 hours of community 
service, maintained a GPA well above the all-male 
average for Elon's campus and instituted new methods 
for improving new member GPA's during their first year as 
fraternity men. While there have been some bumps in the 
road, our executive council as well as all of our members 
are continually striving to improve our fraternities and 
ensure that our council is the best that it can be.

ake care of your people and they will take care of you. It is not just a saying but also a way of life 
for an Air Force Officer. Through out the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC), the 
program which prepares cadets to be future leaders as officers in the United .States Air Force, this 
basic concept of servant leadership is driven home. In order to become an officer, one must have a 
college degree, and the ROTC program is designed to give cadets their basic military training while 
they earn their degrees. 

On the day before graduation, graduating cadets are commissioned as Second Lieutenants in 

their respective branch 

of service just like any 

military academy. 1 

chose ROTC instead of an 

academy because 1 wanted 

to have both the military 

and regular college life 

experience. 

We study Air Force history 

and the art and science of 

leadership in our classes. 

We then apply what 

we have learned in the 

classroom in our weekly 

lab using teambuilding 

exercises and drills to 

practice leadership and 

followership. Freshman 

year is all about learning 

the basics such as customs and cortices, how to wear the uniform, basic knowledge, and drill 

(marching). Sophomore year is all about gearing up for Field Training, which is the basic officer 

training for all AFROTC cadets at Maxwell AFB, Alabama during the summer. There we learn 

expeditionary skills, time management, team building concepts, and perform a mock deployment to 

Camp Selby Mississippi. Junior and senior year we practice and develop our leadership styles, learn 

about current national security issues, and prepare to go on active duty. 

The program has been a great experience and given me many unique experiences. I went to jump 
school where I made my first freefall skydives, worked with B-1 bombers, went on KC-135 aerial 
refueling missions, and became a military training instructor at Field Training. I have also improved 
my public speaking through the numerous briefings we give in the program, as well as personnel 
management while 1 was Cadet Wing Commander in charge of approximately 125 Cadets. 1 know 
these experiences have well prepared me for flight school, which is where 1 plan on going after 
graduation, as well as any other endeavor I engage in for the rest of my life. 

TED SLUSHER | C/COL, AFROTC 





joined ESA the spring of my freshman 
year because in high school I was involved in 
community service and 1 wanted to continue doing 
it in college. ESA offers a fun, social aspect while 
still having service at its core. Being a member of 
the Epsilon Sigma Alpha community and serving 
on the executive board has brought much joy to 
my life. I have been able to help children, serve 
animals and work in gardens. I have also been able 
to visit on of our philanthropies: St. Jude's Children 
Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. 

It was rewarding to see the work that goes into 
saving children's lives and how my efforts have 
helped achieve some of the children's dreams. 
Being a part of Epsilon Sigma Alpha has been a 
gratifying experience not only in the service I have 
done, but also in the unforgettable memories that 1 
have made with great friends.

he Klon University Gospel Choir is not just an 
organization; we are a family. Under the umbrella 
of EUGC, we have five different ministries: the mass 
choir, praise team, step squad (Order My Steps), dance 
ministry (Urgent Message) and poetry ministry (Pot- 
ter's Poets). Each of these ministries adds to the overall 
desire of the Choir, which is to reach the world for God 
through different aspects of the arts. We are commit- 
ted to using our gifts to enhance the Kingdom of God 
and be a beacon of light on this campus. 

The Gospel Choir is made up of about 40 members. 
We sing in various places throughout the community, 
including Elon First Baptist, First Baptist of Elon, and 
Elon Community Church. We also sing and perform 
at many different events on campus including Greek 
events, open mic nights, and cultural events. We have 
one main concert each semester, an extravaganza with 
other local college choirs in the spring, as well as a 
multi-city weeklong tour in the spring. Elon University 
Gospel Choir is a constantly growing ministry that has 
one goal: to fulfill God's purpose for our ministry and 
reach souls for Christ.

keeping an 



open mind 





A, 



,fter going through the S.M.A.Il T program my 
treslimen year I realized it was an integral part of tiie 
college experience for multicultural students, for me, I 
got to connect with an upper classman who was in the 
same major as me as well as the same concentration. 
She actually helped me decide that taking on a cinema 
concentration in the communications department was 
the best option for me. The program is unique in itself from orientation, or Elon 101, in that it gives multicultural 
students a comfortable support system to discuss issues that they might not be comfortable bringing up in 
other settings. These issues can range from racial issues to socio-economic status. In addition to that, it gi\ es a 
medium in w hich incoming multicultural students can all meet each other in a social yet engaging atmosphere. 
All of these elements made me want to become a mentor and give back to the program. 

As a member of BCS (Black Cultural Society), I've had a chance to aid and also enrich an organization that is 
one of Elon's oldest multicultural organizations. BC:S has provided a crucial environment and platform for 
Elon's .African .American students to voice issues of concern and produce programming to enrich as well as 
bring awareness to the black population at Elon. For myself I've had the chance as cultural e\'ents coordinator 
to put on e\ ents such as "Poker Face," a panel dialogue on the correlation between race and societal constructs 
of sexuality. Most recently as special events coordinator I've gotten to help one of our organizations biggest 
e\ents, the spring fashion show. With the role of creative director, I got to outline the overall theme and scene 
construction of the show. BCS has been a pivotal part of 
my experience at Elon as it helped reaffirm my cultural 
identity. 

I feel that organizations like S.MA.R.T and BC:S are 
significant in moving Elon toward its goal of increasing 
diversity on our campus. In the coming years. I'd like 
to see Elon utilize the student voices and faces behind 
these organizations because we hold unique perspectives 
through experience that will aid in brining our university 
into the vast diverse community it's cultivating.

inspiring leaders 




he Isabella Cannon Leadership Program is a great 
opportunity for all students to tune their leadership skills through 
workshops, retreats, service events, and leadership opportunities. 
It's a program that consists of four different phases. Phase I is all 
about exploring your strengths and weaknesses as an emerging 
leader. Phase II consists of collaborating with other leaders 
through a year-long project called Lead Labs, which worked 
on projects such as Phoenix Phanatics, Career Services, and 
validation of service hours in the Kernodle Center. In Phase III, 
students identify and work on a personal and organizational 
change and learn how to facilitate a group discussion. Finally, 
Phase IV consists of a yearlong project that gives back to the 
community which creates a legacy for the members of the 
program.

Raising the Bar 



d Ion students are always up for a challenge. The 
incoming freshman class had an average GPA of 
3.94. They continue to push themselves at Elon 
by balancing their academics with extracurricular 
activities. Giving back to the community is a strong 
priority among Elon students - 83 percent of students 
dedicate their time to volunteering. They also push 
themselves outside of their comfort zone. Seventy 
percent of Elon students take their studies overseas. 

Here at Elon, students don't limit themselves to 
learning in the classroom. An overwhelming majority 
- 78 percent - of students complete internships as 
undergraduates to practice what they have studied 
and get real life experience. It isn't uncommon to hear 
about Elon student research either. On SURF (Student 
Undergraduate Research Form) day the student body 
gathers to learn from their peers who have dedicated 
their time and energy to completing thorough 
research studies on various topics. Elon students are 
absolutely raising the bar for the future.

interests and prepare themselves for their future careers. The College is organized 
by subject areas, which allows students to go another step forward and pursue 
their studies more in-depth. Within the one school, 40 fields of study are offered 
and with a 13 to 1 student to teacher ratio, each student receives significant

do not interest them, students can craft their own course of study in arts and 
sciences with an independent major Tliis allows them to create their own major 
and focus for their future. Frequently, students pursuing an education in the 
college of arts and sciences have taken a step further by seeking opportunities 
for co-curricular activities and participating in undergraduate research. Each 
year, students are recognized for their undergraduate research projects, receiving 
awards and grants from outside of the University.

issues and social justice will remain with me for a

While Vogt considers the program to be very 
rewarding, she also described it as very grounding. 
"1 think a lot of us came in as sophomores with 
high, lofty goals that in reality were not feasible 
given the fact that all of us are full-time students, 
not full-time Pericleans,"she said. "However, I think

V_- arol Grotness Belk Libraiy is a place for students to study, research, and hide away amongst the rows of 
books and study rooms. With approximately 300,000 volumes, access to 150 online databases, and over 200,000 
CDs and DVDs, students never lack the resources they need to complete assignments. Students have the ability 
to access all of Belk Library's contents from anywhere on campus. However, Elon students typically enjoy a trip 
to the Belk Libraiy where they are able to use computers, study on the quiet floors, and work on group projects. 
With reasonable working hours during the week and extended hours during exam time, students always have the 
opportunity to complete their work. 

Belk Library also houses other services for students such as the tutoring center, writing center, elite program, and 
media services. Students can walk into each center when struggling with classes or assignments and receive the 
help that they need to be successful. 

Media services allow Elon students and faculty to checkout laptops and recording equipment. Students can utilize 
all the resources of the Belk Library when they need to. This year, Belk Library has six Amazon Kindle e-books to 
loan to Elon students, faculty and staff

O, 



nee a small organization limited to Political Science students interested in International Relations, 
the Model United Nations Society is now a large and inclusive organization with a number of majors, 
concentrations, and global interests. The MUN Society provides students an opportunity to gain a better 
understanding of global politics through student led lectures and principally though engaged learning. 
Students utilize what they learn during MUN lecture and what is absorbed during regular classes and 
put this knowledge into action during the Mock United Nations Security Council Sessions. During these 
Mock UNSC sessions, students are assigned a country on the United Nations Security Council and asked 
to debate the merits. They then vote on UN resolutions from the perspective of their country. This year 
the MUN Society has enjoyed unprecedented achievements both on and off campus. Members of MUN 
have received the highest honors and accommodation at prestigious international relations conferences, 
including Georgetown University, Duke University and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. On 
campus, the MUN Society has seen an unprecedented growth in membership, developed an organization 
website (www.elonmun.com), and an increase in the number International Relations students and 
sections involved in the International Crisis Conference at Elon (ICCE).

or Honors Convocation this year, the Elon community was lucky enough to hear a panel discussion by some very 
influential people of our time. The panelists, who were moderated by Brian Williams, anchor and managing editor of 
NBC Nightly News, were experts on a number of prevalent issues that are plaguing our country: educational reform, 
financial stability religious equality sustainability and more. By sharing their experiences and insights, each panelist 
made it clear that the American people can indeed do better. Our generation has been honored with great opportunity, 
but also great responsibility 1 believe that the audience was able to relate to the discussion in some way and that each 
person also felt empowered to make a difference by leading his or her life with something they are passionate about. Th 
discussion about the future of our country, and our role as educated Americans, will stick with me on whatever future 
pathway I may take.

CELEBRATE WEE 



surfday 



I was hit by such a strange feeling as I walked up to the 
podium with my research partner, Alex Dunn, on the morning of 
SURF. The feeling was probably part jittery nerves from a tiny fear 
of public speaking and the large amounts of coffee I gulped down 
to cure the "I'm so not a morning person" disease that has plagued 
me for years, but 1 think it also largely stemmed from a flashback 
to freshman year. 1 can vividly remember reading about SURF 
for the first time as I sat in my Barney dorm room and explicitly 
telling myself that I would never be part of it. The opportunity to 
do undergraduate research seemed so far out of my reach and the 
idea of dedicating over a year's worth of time and energy to such 
a huge project was nothing short of completely daunting. So four 
years later, it was totally surreal to stand up in front of an audience 
and present new findings that had been discovered from months 
of literature reviews, designing a study recruiting and assessing 
participants, and finally compiling and analyzing endless pages 
of data that had accumulated from it all. Our fifteen minutes of 
fame quickly flew by; 1 surprisingly managed to survive the public 
speaking and I realized just how quickly four years can escape 
from you, but I was glad to have been given the chance to take 
part in such a rewarding experience that only served to make my 
time at Elon that much more amazing.

Arts, Letters, and Keeping the Community in Mind 

l_ Ion has a small but mighty population of artists, musicians, and creative writers that support and encourage the 
proliferation of open minds and creating work that speaks to the heart as well as the head. 

Specifically the Arts and Letters Learning Community is a unique campus group because it brings diverse and creative 
minds under one roof the first Thursday of every month. One of the best things this artistically minded community is that 
they are involved in social and political causes. During hunger and homeless awareness week. Arts and Letters sponsors 
"Will Read for Food," where teachers and students read passages or poems loosely relating to the themes of family and 
the audience brings nonperishable goods to donate to Alamance County Food Bank. This year Arts and Letters also 
partnered with Spectrum, the LGBTQ group on campus, to host an open mic night during pride week to show support 
and love through poems, stories, songs, and performances.

No one lives in the sky.

Egyptian Ratscrew, drinking

from our ninth grade retreat. 
Tlie cross necklace my parents

1 wonder if He does exist

incredulousness and 1 almost 
hope He is there because 1 want 
there to be something more than 
just a corpse being buried

THEATER 



productions 




o, 



ne of the biggest influences that makes theatrical 
and dance productions at Elon so successful is the 
collaboration process that goes on months before the 
production is mounted. Technically, the show will 
begin the design process 2-3 months in advance, if time 
allows. This includes .scenery, costumes, sound, props 
and lighting. The casting and rehearsal process usually 
starts a month or two before the show opens. The 
relationship between the students and faculty also 
aids the overall process. Tlie students are, often times, 
trusted with certain aspects of the show and follow 
through with the professionalism that the professors 
have taught to them through hands on experience and 
in the classroom. The collection of people that work 
on these shows are truly amazing professionals and the 
amount of preparation that goes into each production 
make theatrical and dance productions the successes 
that they are.

sweet 



signatures 




Since being founded 10 \ears ago. the ladies of Sweet 



O weet Signatures is Elon's only female a cappella group 

Mgnatures have certainly made a name for themsehes. lliis past year the group released their fourth studio album 
L.o\e Affair." "Love Affair" was selected to be represented on two national compilation albums including the Best 
)f Collegiate A Cappella 2011. The album was also nominated for three different CARAs (Contemporary' A Cappella 
Recording .Awards). With the success of their latest album still growing, this couldn't be a better year for the ladies of 
Jweet Signatures to celebrate their 10-year anniversary. 

A'hen 1 look back at my college experience at Elon, being a part of Sweet Signatures is what I'll remember the most. 1 got 
nto the group the spring of my freshman year. Being that it was towards the end of the year, 1 didn't quite understand 
he bonds that the seniors had" at that time. 1 didn't realize what an impact this group would have on my life. But as a 
;eniorthis year, 1 definitely understand. Tlie past three \ears with this group ha\-e been incredible. We've accomplished 
io much. We've traveled together, competed together, recorded an album together; but more than that, the people in 
his group have become some of my closest friends. Doing something you love with people you love is pretty rare and 
hat is what Sweet Signatures has been for me. One of my favorite memories with Sweet Signatures actually happened 
;arlier this year in October We tra\'eled down to .lacksonville, Florida to teach a high school workshop on a cappella 
ind to sing at a wedding. Singing at the wedding ceremony is something 1 will never forget. Singing as the bridal party 
valked down the aisle was prett}- exciting but it was the moment the bride stepped out with her father that was really 
ncredible. Our music set the mood for such a beautiful moment in the brides and grooms' lives: 1 had never felt such a 
;ense of fulfillment and purpose. The memories that 1 have with Sweet Signatures are what define my time here at Elon.

MEASURE 




hat IS Twisted Measure? Tliis question is one that I am frequently asked during my time spent away from Elon's 
campus. Many of the people I come across are not aware of this college group, and rightfully so. We are not large in 
size, nor are we nationally renowned. So, what is Twisted Measure? Those who ask me are not usually aware of the 
complexity of their own question. I almost always settle on a basic and minimal answer: "Twisted Measure is Elon's only 
co-ed a cappella group. We sing nearly eveiy genre of music a cappella style for events on and off campus." For most 
this generalization suffices just fine, but as I've come to know this group over the past three years I myself am only 
beginning to hone down a sufficient definition. 

First and foremost. Twisted Measure is a group of friends. Its members welcomed me with open arms as a timid 
directionless freshman, and my time at Elon has never been the same. Twisted Measure is also a group of music-lovers' 
Not once have I seen them hesitate at the opportunity to share their passion with anyone willing to listen. Twisted 
Measure sings on stage, in stairwells and on street corners. It is a group in which you can't help but be yourself. It is 
a group in which you can't help but find your voice. Twisted Measure is a shoeless, soulful black-and-red fusion of 
diversity dedication and dance moves. Simply put. Twisted Measure is so much more than a college organization- it is 
a home. o o .

iving in a learning community gives students a unique experience tliat's hard to get in a general dorm. From 
the moment you move in, you have something in common with the people living around you and can relate to one 
another. We help each other on projects, often have classes together, and can usually exchange information about 
our field of study. 

Learning communities are just a lot of fun. We do everything from watching Star Wars marathons to making music 
videos in our hall. All the learning communities compete for prizes and money to participate in fun activities such as 
white-water rafting or going out for ice cream. At Elon, everyone can experience diversity, and a learning community 
is a great way to zero in on other people who are a lot like you but whom you can still learn a lot from.

they are supporting at the time. Hie results are provided two days later for the Elon Community to read 
for themselves. Hie Elon Poll provides the opportunity for students to understand something bigger than 
what is found on Elon campus by getting involved in a current issue. Students use the research provided 
from the polls in classroom situations. Lumen scholar opportunities, and research projects. 

With changing political issues and new laws surveys continuously changing, they still provide a better 
understanding of North Carolinians.

ire of the Carolinas, Elon University's 
marching band, is a contemporary 
marching ensemble that provides 
performances on the field and in the stands 
at all Elon home football events. Founded 
in 2001, the Fire of the Carolinas includes 
winds, percussion, color guard, and a dance 
team. Students become part of a family 
even though they come from different 
backgrounds and pursue different majors. 
The marching band has a strike schedule 
to ensure that every bet and movement is 
perfect for the performance. The students 
who are a part of the Fire of Carolinas 
are dedicated to what they do and are 
motivated to do their best every time. 

From their white shoes to their plumes 
on top of their hats, the marching band 
provides entertainment at every home 
game and also travels with the football 
team to some away games. The dance team 
and color guard also support the football 
team with energetic skills. To encourage 
spirit throughout the game, the band and 
color guard play pep tunes to get the crowd 
on its feet. This year marked the band's 
tenth season, and during the halftime show 
the Fire of the Carolinas performed fire- 
inspired songs.

FALL study abroad 



would be lying if I said studying 
abroad was not a life-changing 
experience for me. It was by far one 
of the best experiences of my life and 
I would give anything in the world to 
go back to Australia. Although I hardly 
knew any people on my trip, 1 came 
back with some of the best friends 1 now 
have at Elon. I also had the opportunity 
to make friendships with numerous 
Australians as well as people from 
all over the world, including Africa 
and New Zealand. I would have never 
imagined the friendships 1 made on 
this trip and know 1 will keep in touch 
with them for the rest of my life. From 
the moment I got there to the moment 
I left, I had the time of my life, and it 
was beyond anything I would have ever 
imagined. 



1 did not want to come back from 
Australia at all, but life goes on. This trip 
taught me what really matters in life, 
especially when you tiy to live off of 
nothing but your own resources! I also 
discovered the importance of opening 
up outside of the "Elon bubble" and 
exploring the world. If it were not for 
Australia, I do not think my life would 
be complete.

STUDY ABROAD 




B, 



oarding my flight from Newark, DE to Rome, Italy was one of the most exciting moments for me. 1 had 
been anticipating this since 1 was taking the pre-departure classes for my winter term class. Cathedral: Messages 
of Power. My classes over the course of my fall semester had thoroughly prepared me for my study abroad to Italy, 
Heidelberg, The Netherlands and France. Tlie instant my classmates and 1 landed in Rome, 1 knew we were being 
granted an opportunity that was rarely experienced. Elon University prides itself in providing its students with these 
experiences. Elon is unsurpassed by any other university with studying abroad, and our international programs are 
true testaments to this. 1 was given the opportunity to travel and gain a greater understanding of cathedrals and 
the architectural importance of various designs in the buildings. My study abroad experience not only gave me the 
experience and confidence to travel independently in an international setting, but it also gave me the experience to 
interact with people from a multitude of cultures. 1 grew as an individual during my study abroad and matured in 
realizing that traveling or living internationally could be something that I would be interested in for my future. My 
study abroad experience is one moment that I will treasure forever and I will always remember it as one of the best 
experiences I was given at Elon.

' tudy abroad has really been one of my most 

rewarding experiences at Elon. I spent tiiis past 

spring semester in Paris, France in a home stay 

in one of Paris's suburbs. Studying abroad is an 

amazing opportunity to learn about another 

country's culture and traditions. This experience 

has been as equally fun and enjoyable as it has 

been eye-opening and meaningful. Few people get 

to step out of their comfort zones and experience 

life through a different cultural lens. Elon teaches 

its students to Think Globally and Act Locally' 

which I've been able to embrace while abroad 

through learning a completely different language 

in a country with completely different customs 

and traditions.

UMMER STUDY 

abroad 



uiiiiiK'r 2010 was ahsoliUcly tlu- 
best sumuKT oliiiN lile. I studieil ami 
iiitci'iu'd abniad with nine other I'Jim 
students in London from May throui^li 
mid Juh'. I instantly fell in love vvitli my 
roommates. I couldn't believe that in 
my tiiree years at Klon I had never met 
them before. We planned day trips to the 
countryside and weekend trips to places 
around Rurope tliat we'd always wanted 
to travel - with the help of Ryanair. It 
was an incredible experience. Everything 
from trying an elk burger in Stockholm, 
Sweden to celebrating my 21" birthday in 
Prague was unforgettable. 

I also fell in love with the company 

where I was interning. Aylwin 

( 'ommiinications is a property public 



relations lirm that manages clients 
from engineers to conti^actors. I 
worked closely with the owner of the 
company, Richard Aylwin, who took 
me under his wing and really showed 
me the ins and outs of the company. 
He even allowed me to tag along to 
assist him in personal client meetings. 
I will never forget the hospitality 
that he and his colleagues showed 
me. Although it has been almost a 
year since my internship, 1 still keep 
in touch with everyone at Aylwin. 
Ihey welcomed me with open arms 
into their way of life and opened 
my eyes to the incredible London 
culture, as well as the professional 
business world. I hope that someday 
I can return to London to visit my 
colleagues that 1 can confidently call 
my friends.

May 21, 2011 



'\er 1.200 senior gratliuites niai'ched across Klon's 
ipus to sit under tiie oaks for the one hundred tvventy- 
I'st eommeneenient eeremony. 'I'he 
[■reniony began witii opening remarks 
d a prayer from Rev. Phillip Smith, 
ul the seniors were welcomed h\ 
president of the Elon Alumni 
lard, ('hristopher Martin 78. Michael 
• iwak, Senior Class President, gave the 
|-aduates words of encouragement and 
ipreciation, emphasizing all the changes 
n has occurred during the past four 
I ^ and how important it was that the 
Miors had changed and grown with the 
ii\ersity draduates then listened to 
|ce Admii-al William Gortney's address titled "The Secrets 
Guaranteed Wealth." Admiral Gortney emphasized that 
lealth is not just a lump sum of earnings throughout one's 




professional career, but also a collection of aci|uired traits 

that build strong character, such as passion, integrity and 
honor. The seniors then walked across the 
stage to receive a well-earned diploma 
and then gathered by the fountain to 
receive their oak sapling. Graduates were 
full of mixed emotions - sadnes.s, joy, 
nostalgia, excitement - just to name a few. 
Vlichael Nowak described the feeling as 
"bittersweet." Graduates were proud of 
their accomplishments and achievements, 
however sad to leave friends and loved 
ones that they became so close to during 
their college years. As seniors walked 
away from the commencement ceremony, 

they remembered all the good times while looking forward 

to embarking on new adventures.

' eniors, can you really believe it has been four years? 
Crazy, I know. Our Elon journey has been an incredible 
one in which we all have found success in many ways. 
Baltimore Ravens' star linebacker, Ray Lewis's said 
when he addressed our football team that "greatness 
is a lot of small things done well, stacked on top of 
each other." This is ever present in the Class of 2011. 
Throughout our four years we have strived to do the 
"small things" right, day-in and day-out, whether that 
has been the extra study time for that absurdly hard 
test, staying late after practice to do extra drills, or the 
long nights spent rehearsing for that upcoming show, 
just to name a few. Those "small things" done eveiyday

My Wish for you 

i hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow 

And EACH ROAD LEADS YOU WHERE YOU WANT TO GO 

AND IF YOU'RE FACED WITH THE CHOICE AND YOU HAVE TO 

CHOOSE 

I HOPE YOU CHOOSE THE ONE THAT MEANS THE MOST TO 

YOU 

And if one door opens to another door closed 

1 hope you keep on walkin' til you find the window 

if it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of 

your smile 

But more than anything, more than anything 

My WISH FOR you 

Is THAT THIS LIFE BECOMES ALL THAT YOU WANT IT TO 

YOUR DREAMS STAY BIG, YOUR WORRIES STAY SMALL 

You NEVER NEED TO CARRY MORE THAN YOU CAN HOLD 

And WHILE YOU'RE OUT THERE GETTIN' WHERE YOU'RE 

GETTIN' TO 

1 HOPE YOU KNOW SOMEBODY LOVES YOU 

And WANTS THE SAME THINGS TOO 

Yeah, this is my wish 

i hope you never look back but you never forget 

all the ones who love you and the place you left 

i hope you always forgive and you never regret 

and you help somebody every chance you get 

oh, you'd find god's grace in every mistake 

And always give more than you take 

But more than anything, yeah more than anything 

My wish for you 

Is THAT this life BECOMES ALL THAT YOU WANT IT TO

he 96th edition of Phi Psi Cli yearbook was produced by the 2011 Phi Psi Cli staff at Elon University in Elon, 
North Carolina. Taylor Publishing of Dallas, Texas printed 1,000 copies of the 224 page all-color book. The account 
was serviced by Milani Arguelles and local senior representative Shandi Foster. Free copies of the yearbook were 
distributed to students, faculty and staff and sent home to class of 2011 graduates at their request. 

The theme "Controlled Chaos" was developed as a result of a brainstorming discussion during one of the year's 
first staff meetings in Fall 2010. It was chosen because it describes the average Elon student: involved in many 
different activities, thus making life chaotic, but yet still managing to remain organized and controlled. 

Lauren Warr designed several different cover samples and the yearbook staff voted on the cover design they liked 
best. The cover is size 9 with four color processed lithocote material and featuring gloss lamination with a lizard 
grain and debossing. The binder board is 120 pt. The endsheets are printed and are 100 # enamel paper. 

The 2011 edition covers from June 2010 to May 2011. The book was created using a combination of Adobe 
InDesign CS4 and Adobe InDesign CSS on six Macintosh computers in the Priestley Building where the Phi Psi Cli 
office is located. Lauren Warr also developed the style guide for the book. All body copy was set in 11-point Serif 72 
Beta. Captions were set in 8-point Quicksand Light or Book. All page headlines were done in Serif 72 Beta Italic and 
Quicksand Book. Pages were submitted to the plant online. 

Each section in the book has been indicated by the use of a colored strip at the bottom of the page. These colors 
make up the color palette for the 2011 book. The colors were used to indicate the following sections: student life, 
sports, seniors, news, and index. 

Lifetouch Studios of Burlington, NC photographed senior students in their caps and gowns on designated photo 
days throughout the year. Pictures on all pages were either taken or obtained by a member of the Phi Psi Cli staff or 
were submitted by members of the Elon community. 

The staff of Phi Psi Cli would like the thank all of those who made this book possible, including but not limited to 
all students who submitted pictures and stories, the Media Board for their guidance and our advisor. Randy Piland, 
for his continued support and advice. Finally, we would like to thank our Balfour/Taylor representative, Shandi 
Foster, for being a mentor, advisor, and great friend. She believes in what she does and brings joy and enthusiasm to 
many yearbooks. Thank you for all of your help.
